'Breaking Bad' on Netflix now available in 4K, for some 'Breaking Bad,' generally considered one of the top shows of all-time, is now available in the highest quality possible for streaming, 4K.
Available via Netflix, all five seasons of the hit show are available in 4K quality, but with significant caveats. The company says the 4K Breaking Bad is available "only on Ultra HD 4K Smart TVs that have Netflix embedded and include an HEVC H.265 decoder for now."

They are working on adding more options, including 4K monitors.

Netflix has promised to make more content available in 4K, and Breaking Bad will now join House of Cards and soon, the rest of Netflix's original content, in the high resolution quality.

In order to be a True Ultra HD 4K, the original Movie/Show need to be film it: on 4K. Any other way the film will end-up like those original 2-D movies converted in to 3-D Garbage.

Just saying.

It was shot primarily on 35 mm film, so they should be ok.

Will each episode be accompanied by the warning that it's the ISPs fault that the show has to buffer so many times. Of course that message will be in glorious 4K HD.
