Default Buying 4K UHD movies from Prime Video

I have 3 Smart 4K UHD televisions with all the proper HDMI cables etc and also am an Amazon Prime member.

I noticed that there are some new films coming out as 4K releases on Amazon prime and considerably cheaper than the equivalent 4K Blu-ray.

Forgive me if this is a silly question but if I buy a 4K version of a film via Amazon Prime using my desktop (which is just an HD screen) but access it through one of my 4K TVs (where my Prime account is activated) will I be getting a proper 4K picture quality or is there a trade-off somewhere?

Yes, you will get the 4K version if that is what you purchased.

I think a great test for that would be to choose one of their shows (Jack Ryan for example), and watch that in 4k. And then watch the non 4k version right after. You'll be amazed
