YouTube for Android TV can stream in 8K for only a few

It seems like only yesterday when the market finally caught up with 2K and now TV makers and content publishers are already pushing 8K everywhere they can. It's definitely going to take a lot of time before that even becomes as prevalent as 4K, especially considering the limitations when it comes to the availability of hardware and content.

Those sources, however, have strangely lost one important member as users report Netflix's practical disappearance from the app.
