The All-Inclusive Multimedia Plyback Solutions

DVDFab Player 5 offers the world’s most complete playback solutions regarding audios, videos, DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, both on Windows and macOS platforms.

If you're an owner of a 4K TV set, then you should make full use of its powerful display capabilities to enjoy a superior movie-viewing l experience. One of the easiest and convenient ways to do this is by watching the best 4K movies on Netflix.


Netflix offers the HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology in its 4K streaming movies which turns your TV viewing experience on its head by offering extraordinary contrast, brightness and color. How do you get started? You would first need to change your plan to the Ultra tier plan. It would cost you more, of course, but there’s no doubt you get the bang for your buck.

Also, you would need to have an Internet broadband speed of at least 25 Mbps as recommended by Netflix.


But then finding 4K movies could be a tricky affair over Netflix. Of course you can see an HDR or Dolby Vision logo on its 4K/HDR-ready titles.  But that alone doesn’t make it easy to find the best 4K movies within a few clicks of the mouse.

With that in mind here's a list of the best 4K movies on Netflix which you could include in your Netflix 4K movies list to watch in 2019.




DVDFab Player 5 Ultra

As the best 4K media player, it supports menu playback on regular Blu-rays and 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, HDR10 and HD audio output, 3D playback on 3D media contents and 4K UHD and HEVC (H.265) video playback.

1. Blue Planet II (2019)

The second journey deep into the world’s oceans is bigger and better than the first in terms of the image quality. The 2017 series heads to places few camera crews have been to capture some of the most stunning underwater footage ever put on screen. It’s all narrated by David Attenborough, of course, and one of that rare breed: a series that educates and elucidates just as much as it entertains. Dive in.


2. Love Death + Robots (2019)

This collection of R-rated animated shorts about the future is like a tube of Smarties for 4K fans – each of the 18 films is short and tasty, and as soon as you finish one there’s another one right there to eat/watch. With a variety of animation styles on show and a bunch of clever ideas to shove inside your head alongside the gorgeous visuals, Love Death + Robots is a definite top-tier Netflix entry for 4K/HDR TV owners. It’s also jam-packed with bloody violence, sex and filthy language, so dainty types should be warned – this ain’t your typical cartoon series.


3. The Umbrella Academy (2019)

Based on the award-winning graphic novels penned by none other than My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way, this dark fantasy series about a dysfunctional family of superheroes – including Ellen Page and Robert Sheehan – comes off like a mash-up of The X-Men, Hellboy, Misfits and Skins. Fifteen years after drifting apart, six unconventional siblings must reunite to save their world (an alternate reality in which JFK was never assassinated) from apocalypse – not to mention a sociopathic assassin played by Mary J. Blige. As with many Netflix Originals, The Umbrella Academy is a visual treat, presented not only in pixel-packed 4K but HDR too.


4. The Marvelous Mrs Maisel (2019)

House of Cards’ Rachel Brosnahan stars as Midge Maisel, a vivacious, fast-talking housewife with what she thought was the perfect 1950s upper-middle class New York lifestyle: husband, kids, a beautiful Upper West Side apartment. When an unexpected turn puts that all in jeopardy, she decides to pursue a career in standup comedy – and discovers she has a rare talent not only for making people laugh but for hitting upon life’s truths and enigmas while doing it.


5. Chef's Table (2019)

This series follows world-renowned chefs as they take viewers on a personal journey through their culinary evolution. Essentially, each episode affords the viewer an intimate, informative glimpse into what gets a genius's creative juices flowing.


6. Roma (2019)

As you’d expect from director Alfonso Cuarón, previously responsible for the likes of Gravityand Children of Men, Roma is both immensely impressive on a technical level – beautifully shot and composed in black and white – and emotionally charged, resulting in a movie that’s every bit as powerful as anything made primarily for the big screen. Semi-autobiographical and inspired by Cuarón’s childhood in Mexico, the film follows an indigenous maid to a wealthy middle-class family as she experiences a series of momentous (and everyday) events.


7. Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot (2019)

Gus Van Sant’s affecting, affirming biopic stars Joaquin Phoenix as John Callahan, an alcoholic for whom a particularly epic bender ends in an horrific car accident. Paralysed and depressed, Callahan eventually finds solace in friends, art and the twelve-step programme.Phoenix is typically excellent as the often-unlikeable Callahan, and there’s also superb support from Jonah Hill and Rooney Mara. A funny, thought-provoking and inspiring tale about conquering your worst impulses and “choosing life”.


8.  The Expanse (2019)

The Expanse is music to the ears of anyone who digs sprawling, critically-acclaimed and complex space operas. It sets a couple of centuries in the future where humanity’s colonisation of the solar system has resulted in tension between competing factions. It’s basically Game of Thrones with spaceships instead of dragons.


9. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (2019)

The Office’s John Krasinski stars as Clancy’s CIA analyst and all-round American hero, a role previously played by Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine. With Michael Bay numbering among the executive producers, perhaps we should have known this’d be a little lacking in the sort of shades of grey you’d find in, say, Homeland. But if you can stomach the jingoism and simply enjoy this for what it is – a boy’s own techno-thriller spy story – you’ll find it a slick, pacy ride that looks and sounds glorious on a 4K telly.


10. Patriot (2019)

This quirky spy drama blends deadpan humour, action and a coterie of memorable characters for a truly original whole. Michael Dorman excels as the permanently put-upon CIA operative John Lakeman, who really just wants to be a folk singer – only for life to keep conspiring against him.The smart plot takes in Iran, nuclear weapons, a single-minded Luxembourger cop and a lot more info about industrial piping than you’d ever need know. It’s genuinely laugh-out-loud funny at times and the acting throughout is excellent.


11. The Babysitter 2017

Cole is a secret admirer of his babysitter, Bee. One night, well after bedtime, he decides to spy on her. He discovers that she's actually a cold-blooded killer working with a gang who would not hesitate to kill to prevent their secret from being leaked.

Netflix acquired the distribution rights to The Babysitter from New Line Cinema in December 2016, premiering it on October 13, 2017.

The movie was well received with 71% giving it favorable reviews over Rotten Tomatoes with an average of 5.5 over 10.


12. Dark (2017)

Strange events happen in an otherwise laidback German small town. The hero's father commits suicide. A child goes missing. A search operation doesn’t yield any leads. Then another child disappears. This family saga is a drama with a touch of crime and mystery plus a supernatural twist thrown in for good measure.


13. The Blacklist (2013)

A most wanted criminal surprisingly turns himself into the FBI. He's willing to cooperate and provide information on crime that's not in any law enforcement agency's database. But he insists on speaking only to a new female FBI profiler.

The producers revealed that the inspiration for the show came from the life of Whitey Bugler, a crime lord who headed the  Winter Hill Gang in Boston, Massachusetts.

This is certainly one of the best 4K movies on Netflix.


14. The OA (2016)

Blind Prairie went missing seven years ago. When she returns home with perfect sight many sit up and take notice. Some believe it's a miracle while others think there's something evil behind her.

Debuting over Netflix on December 16, 2016 this is a mystery drama which blends science fiction, supernatural and fantasy sub-plots. This Netflix original received favorable reviews and accolades from most film critics.

You should include The OA in your must-watch Netflix 4K movies list for 2018


15. Orange is the New Black (2013)

Piper Chapman does time in jail for helping transport drug money to an ex-girlfriend. She is a law-abiding citizen though. Shocked at being sentenced to a year and a half behind bars, she comes to terms with her trying situation and learns some useful things from prison life.

Orange is the New Black certainly qualifies to be in the list of the best 4K movies on Netflix.


16. 1922 (2017)

This movie is based on Stephen King's novella of the same name. Wilfred James is a down-to-earth but proud farmer. He teams up with his son to murder his wife to get hold of her inherited land. Soon after her death, strange, unexplainable incidents start happening to James and his farm.

The film saw release on October 20, 2017 over Netflix.

Chris Agar, writing in Screen Rant, said, "1922 is a fascinating exploration of what guilt does to a man, fueled by a strong lead performance from Jane and compelling direction.”


17.  Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie (2017)

Gene Handsome is adept at solving the toughest mysteries. However, the   LA homicide detective is often clueless when it comes to ironing out personal problems.

The dialogues are fast-paced and the wacky characters will make you laugh your head off.
