Isn't there a minimum GPU requirement on Windows or am I imagining that?

Could be, not entirely sure...
I believe Netflix uses HEVC for its UltraHD HDR content, so modern Intel CPUs (Kabylake or newer) should be able to handle it pretty easily with QuickSync. You should be able to run it off integrated graphics, with most modern integrated graphics supporting 4k60hz over DP. Anything older and you might see CPU performance issues or require a discrete GPU that can handle 10bit HEVC decoding (Nvidia 10 series). (Don't quote me on any of this, though!)

I believe it requires a Kaby Lake or newer Intel iGPU or an Nvidia Pascal or newer GPU. Doesn't matter how low end, from what I remember.
