You’ll need a Mac with a T2 chip to be able to stream 4K content from Netflix


This makes zero sense to me. The only Macs, that could really benefit from 4k streaming, without an external monitor, are the 4k and 5k iMacs yet only 2 models (the Pro and the new 2020 27″) will be able to stream it. Windows machines don’t have any kind of T2 alternative and are still able to stream 4k via Edge or via the native app, their only requirement is a 7th gen intel cpu or a dedicated graphics card.

Read the comments. Interesting stuff.

This is responding to the Netflix in Ultra HD help page.

Here are the first few requirements:

  • A Mac computer with macOS 11.0 Big Sur installed.
  • The latest version of Safari browser
  • Select 2018 or later Mac computer with an Apple T2 Security chip

That last one is the most surprising. An anti-piracy move?
