Streaming via app built into TV?

I've just upgraded my TV to a Sony 4K set. It comes with various built in apps, such as Netflix.

I'm a bit old school (err...very old) and have a mistrust of anything that seems too easy to use...does anyone else use Netflix thats built into the TV and is it any better/worse than my current method which is streaming via the app on an Apple TV?

I am thinking of upgrading to the Premium sub so I can watch 'Ultra HD'.

cheers

I have it in my LG TV.

No difference to my WDTV at all. I just use the TV one as it starts up quicker than starting up the WDTV box.

I discovered my TV has an Amazon app also, so have been watching Netflix and Amazon UHD material. If I'm honest, I am not sure I can tell the difference between UHD and HD....and Amazon still has the stuttery picture issue that I get with the Fire TV. Othwerwise these work fine and I am slowly overcoming my prejudice :-)



cheers
