Do the PS4 actually support Netflix 4K streaming?

If you are a video game enthusiast, you must have heard about or owned the Sony PlayStation 4, Unfortunately, while Netflix does offer 4K movie streaming for an additional monthly charge, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One do not currently offer an option for 4K video output, whether for video games or photos and videos. Without doubt, you may have come across the same puzzle about “4K Netflix content not coming through PS4”as below:

“I really hope you can help me. I have a PS4, I have Netflix 4K subscription and I have a Panasonic TX55CX700B TV (which has HDCP2.2). If I open the Netflix App directly through the TV and play 4K content it streams beautifully and even states in top corner in netflix that its ULTRA HD 4K. However if I then switch to the PS4, open the Netflix App and select the same 4k content it plays on the TV but in top corner it simply says HD and doesnt look anywhere near as good. The issue I have is all my surround sound is coming through an Amp to which the PS4 is connected so prefer to just have everything through PS4.”

Moreover, one of the most headline-grabbing features of the PS4 is that it supports 4K movie streaming! You can stream the popular Netflix 4K videos to PS4 for nice playing. Amazing, isn’t it? However, the PS4 does not support all 4K videos due to the formats and complicated codecs. Currently, most 4K movies are MXF/RAW/XAVC/XAVC-S format, while PS4 supports .mp4 files best.
