The best 4K movies and TV shows on Netflix

Screengrab via Orange Is the New Black / Netflix

Once you go 4K, you never go back.

It’s easier than ever to watch 4K Netflix movies and shows.

While HD is now the standard for TV, film, and most videos streaming online, some people have jumped over to 4K—a resolution four times higher than 1080p, the standard for HD. The resolution is approximately 4,000 pixels horizontally, hence the name. While mainstream television has yet to focus significantly on it, 4K resolution is gaining traction on streaming sites like Netflix and Amazon Prime.

4K isn’t something everyone can boot up instantly, though. For one, you need to purchase a 4K Ultra HD TV and set it up properly before you can start to watch 4K quality TV—your internet browser won’t cut it. Once you’ve got that covered, you have to upgrade your Netflix subscription to the Premium option, which costs $11.99 a month. (The Premium subscription also lets you stream content on up to four screens at once.) You’ll need an internet connection speed that’s at least 25 megabits per second and “high” streaming quality on Netflix.


But how do you figure out what’s available to stream in 4K? If you’re already subscribed to Netflix’s Premium service, you can search “4K” or “UHD” for Ultra HD titles. This search function appears to also work without a Premium subscription.

Right now, the options of what you can stream in 4K are limited to most Netflix-produced content and a handful of other shows and movies, but your other favorite shows and movies are likely to make the jump at some point. Here’s a full list of 4K movies and shows on Netflix, along with the all the other 4K content you’ll find on the service.
