Fix the buffering on Sat evenings first...

...and then worry about 4k, OK?
There has not been one single instance where I could watch a movie without pauses for buffering during weekend evenings, that while all my bandwidth tests show 15+M at the same time.

could it be an ISP thing? may be they prioritize certain thing, just wondering, not questioning your experience, because I don't experience any slowdown during weekend night.

I doubt, because friends in the region having different ISPs are experiencing the same. 8-10PM EST on a Sat is buffering time...

Could be the point of entry into the Internet or where its peered at or some place else. I have U-verse and have no problems at any time with NetFlix.

No buffering on our network. Playback smooth as glass -- even for SuperHD and 3D streams. (Fiber has its advantages!)

My guess is it's your ISP peering, probably don't have CDN either.

I've never noticed an issue with buffering on Netflix streaming any time I use it.
