Buying a new tv

I am currently searching for a new tv and need some help, please.

I use a Roku streaming stick to watch Now TV, Netflix and Prime and want to upgrade my TV to a 4KHD. After speaking to Roku customer services who informed me:

Up to 2160p at 60fps (3840 × 2160) with up-scaling from 720p and 1080p. TV must have an HDMI input that supports HDCP 2.2
Supports HDR10. TV must have an HDMI input that supports HDCP 2.2


Now I know what HDR means and understand the HDMI and HDCP 2.2, which means (I think) I can only get true 4KHD if the TV has HDMI inputs with HDCP 2.2. 

So if I have the compatible TV and the correct cables will i be able to watch Now tv (Sky Cinema and Sky Sports) in 4kHD

Re: Buying a new tv

Whatever TV you look at, download the manual and LOOK in it to see if ALL of the HDMI inputs will handle 4K TV. I have a 50 inch Samsung 4K TV and couldn't figure out why my Roku Ultra was telling me it wasn't able to do 4K. Manual...... and find out only ONE of the 4 HDMI inputs can do 4K. Switch inputs. Roku Ultra happy.
I have an A/V Receiver, but... it's older and doesn't do 4K. If I want additional 4K I'd have to replace either the TV (for one that does 4K on more HDMI inputs) or the receiver.

If you're looking at a new TV anyways, why not consider a 4K Roku TV? Wouldn't that take care of the 4K question?
