Question Netflix on which device?

So I have a Roku box, a new TV, and Comcast X1. And they all have Netflix on them. Which will work best? I'd think it be the X1 box because it has a direct coax conect while the others have to use WiFi. On the other hand it's a 4K tv so wouldn't that do the cleanest up conversion?

Most WIFI routers now days transmit at 54 MBPS, that's fine using WIFI for Netflix movies directly at the new TV, it's all determined by your ISP connection speed, under 2 MBPS and you would get major buffering.

So if your connection speed is good then use the TV set's for Netflix.

Speed test for your ISP.....www.speedtest.net

If you have the 100 or 200 mbps speed with Comcast just connect directly with your TV. I have the same setup as you and the Netflix PQ is amazing. I'd assume it will be more compressed through your Comcast receiver.

I stream my Netflix though a SONY Blu-Ray player that is hard wired to the router via Ethernet.

I have it through X1 and a smart TV. My smart TV is wired and personally I find the TV app to be clearer than the Comcast app. I don't know why.
