    Zidoo make a statement on their website about the Zidoo H6 Pro:

    Maybe
    Is the best set-top box you've seen “
    . But.....
    At least to earn this opinion Netflix 4K Shouf be applicable.

    So What / When actions has Zidoo taken to have this operational ?

    it say's maybe, i don't think 4k will come any time soon. it's a miracle it has 1080p, if you got this box for netflix 4k, you made a mistake, 95% of androit TV boxes can't play netflix 4k, mostly because of drm's and netflix licensing for HD/4k.

    From kodi comunity:

    1080p/4K Netflix and Amazon Video streaming

    Q. I need a Kodi box that can play 1080p or 4K DRM copy protected video streams such as Netflix, HBO etc. ?
    NOTE: Unless you have a HDMI connected Dolby Digital Plus Audio receiver, expect 2.0 Audio only from DD+ DRM streaming Apps running on Android TV platforms. Only very specific devices, noted below can run the Amazon Video App properly.

    1080p/4K Android Netflix / Amazon Video is only possible on media players boxes that include Widevine L1 & HDCP 1.x/2.2 support in device Firmware.

    • NVIDIA Shield (4K HDR Netflix / 4K HDR Amazon Video)
    • Xiaomi Mi Box (4K Netflix - no HDR)
    • Amazon Stick / FTV1 + FTV2 (4K) + 2017 FireTV 4K (Amazon Video)
    • Intel / AMD x86-64 computers with GeForce GT 1030 or later Nvidia graphics card solution running Win10, using either dedicated Apps or a Web Browser.
    • WeTek's Core (1080p touchscreen Netflix, audio is 2.0 only)
    • WeTek Hub & Play2** (4K Netflix with ATV ROM)
    • ** ATV Netflix on Play2 also allows 5.1 Audio via SPDIF, joining the Amazon FireTV1 that can also do this.
    • Apple TV4 & 4K TV5
    • MECOOL M8S Pro Plus** (S905X) (1080p Netflix with 3rd party Android TV Firmware)
      **BEWARE there has been hardware reliability issues with the MECOOL box.
    Long story short. send the box back and get a nvidia shield for netflixing and chill*
    (*chill is not guaranteed by nvidia or netflix)

    Thanks for this Fast update.

    I have a Xaomi Mi and have seen the spec’s of this Zidoo H6 Pro and these are better.

    That’s Why as a noob wrongly interpreted that Netflix 4K would also work.

    I had installed standard Kodi ( without any ADD-Ons ) and was impressed.
    Qualityis very good also 4K YouTube on my Oled 4K TV.

    So I will sell this Zidoo now and go for a NVidia.

    Keep in mind that nvidia shield is also not perfect, it may have 4k netflix but it may have other bugs , i suggest you hop on nvidia shield forum and make sure it's up to your requests,

    I do not really see why you want netlfix 4 k on the multimedia box, all 4k TV have Netflix 4K or amazon prime, etc...why go through another device.

    we choose the zidoo to have one of the best image currently available.

    my shield TV, I use it as a paperweight.
