Nvidia's Geforce 384 driver supports 4K Netflix on PC
Does everyone have a HDCP 2.2 display?

Nvidia's latest GPU drivers support Ultra HD Netflix on PC
Netflix 4K required certain DRM checks to convince rights holders that the PC is safe to stream to, which means that all of the user's displays must be HDCP 2.2 compliant, even in a multi-monitor setup. This will be a huge problem for those that use an older display alongside a 4K monitor.
This leaves AMD as the only GPU maker on the PC platform to lack support for Netflix 4K, though this could be added in time with driver updates.
Right now, the playback of premium 4K content is highly restricted on PC, be it Netflix Streaming or the Direct playback of 4K UltraHD Blu-Ray movies. Hopefully in time using this content will become easier, though for now it is restricted to select OS' and hardware configurations, leaving those with older PCs in the dark.
