Question Streaming 4k video on PC (Netflix, Amazon Prime) Problems

Jun 17, 2020
Hi all, first time poster.

I recently upgraded my old monitor to a 32" Samsung UR95C curved 4k display and upgraded my GTX570 video card to a GTX960 to support 4k. The 4k videos i watch on Youtube look amazing.

However i am unable to stream any 4k from Netflix. I have learned that you need HDCP 2.2 compatibility. Looks like this monitor does not support it. After reading some more it appears that you need to have a specific generation CPU, and a specific model video card (or above), a specific HDMI cable and monitor. Just wondering if i am totally jammed up or if there is some work around or adapter for this?

I can watch 4k video no problem. I do not game. Just want to watch 4k video on netflix. I see there are some adapters for cable but i am wondering if this will even work for me. Appreciate any advice.
