I'm not sure about sat stb. But presuming the tv has a hevc decoder and Netflix. And you have an adequate internet connection. You will be able to stream breaking bad and house of cards in 4k.

I don't know that tv, so correct me if I'm wrong. But if its 26" you will struggle to tell the difference between sd and hd.
