Trying to build a media box

I'm looking to build a server at home to stream movies (2-3) max at the same time.

Either 1080p or 4k compatible.

I want to be able to access those movies at home and my inlaws.

I'm looking for a rather simple setup thats energy efficient and rather cheap.

How much storage do you need? How many devices are going to be streaming at the same time? Will you be using it for anything other than hosting and streaming the movies?

A home server like that can range anywhere from a Raspberry Pi hooked up to an external hard drive all the way up to a full-size quad-core desktop with a RAID array depending on your needs.
