You can get Netflix in 4K on your Windows PC (finally)

Of course, you'll need to be running Windows 10, Edge and the latest seventh generation Kaby Lake Intel processor.

It's been a long time coming, but Netflix in 4K has finally come to PC. While 4K resolution has been available on a selection of TVs and streaming sticks since the rollout began over a year ago, it's the first time you'll be able to see all those pixels (or, rather, not see any pixels thanks to the much improved picture quality) on PC.

Microsoft made the announcement (along with a list of recommended "Gilmore Girls" episodes in a cross-promotional flurry) in a blog post on Monday.

4K content is only going to be available on compatible Windows 10 2-in-1s and PCs, which means it's not as easy as firing up your PC and plowing through 7 seasons of mother-daughter bonding. Or whatever you want to watch. You'll need to be running the latest Microsoft Edge Web browser in Windows 10, and your computer will need to be packing the latest seventh generation Kaby Lake processor from Intel. Which is to say, it's a pretty small subset of Windows users.
