    Would it be beneficial to use a 4k HDR TV if none of my content is 4k or HDR?

    Nope. I would probably wait until more content is available in 4k.

    Netflix has some 4k?

    Might still be if:

    You have material whose sharpness/detail is valuable and you have a large enough tv and sit close enough to it, and the encoding is done well enough to take full advantage of the detail.

    Or similarly,

    You have material whose color gamut takes full advantage of the extended rec2020 colorspace.

    4K TVs are pretty cheap already. If you are in the market for a new TV then I would. Only reason not to, would be that it wont come with a ASTC 3.0 tuner, which has yet to be finalized and will be used in the future to broadcast 4K content over the air.

    Watching 1080p content on a 4K TV won't really help anything, might even make it worse.

    1080p on 4k displays encounters the same scaling variabilities as SD on HD TVs. Some are great, most are ok or mediocre, some are crap.

    Unfortunately, not the new HDR ones.
