4k shows and Internet speeds

I used to be able to download 4K shows and watch them off my harddrive. I have 12Meg (tests out at 14 to 17) download speed which is now too slow to stream 4K. Retired can not afford to go higher on my internet speed.

Typically, for any service, you’ll want no less than 25 Mbps for 4K. It is just so much larger than an HD broadcast. Youdo have plenty of speed to download and stream HD.

Stevenmac1956, the recommended download speed for On Demand content on DISH receivers would be 10 Mbps for 4K. For Netflix, the recommended speed would be 25 Mbps, and for YouTube, the speed would be 35 Mbps.

UpDate: My local phone company and Dish bundler does not have 25M speeds in my area yet.
