    What is the majority of your content? If it's 1080p (most likely). A 4K TV can actually decrease picture quality. Because 4K TV has so much more resolution than 1080p content can provide, the TV has to upscale. In other words, the TV has to create content to "fill in the blanks". Not all TVs do this well. Sony does this well.

    That's why a less expensive 1080p TV can look better than a more expensive 4K TV when it's streaming lower resolution video. Because the 4K TV may not be upscaling well - a problem with low end 4K TVs.

    If you want a 4K TV, then Sony won't let you down. Because of their superior upscaling.

    Just an FYI I retired 20 years in the cable industry so might be able to help...what speed internet do you have?

    Buffering many times comes from using an old modem and not keeping it updated.

    How old a modem do you have?
