FYI UHD discs present the audio and video in an uncompressed state. Streaming compresses the crap out of the video and usually limits you to Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. Some people don't mind these differences because they have never seen the difference between the two or don't have the equipment at home to take advantage. IMHO if any of these are favorite films I recommend reading reviews on the 4K transfer quality and audio on the disc. If you have a home theater with 4K and Atmos sound the disc will win every time.

If you're thinking about redeeming the 4K codes that come with these discs, you may be interested in this:

This is my strategy for 4K codes. And I come at this from the perspective of an Apple TV 4K user, and I prefer that as my 4K streaming platform:


Fox: redeem via iTunes - pushes into iTunes @ 4K no problem. However, might push SD/HD in VUDU, although this issue is apparently getting fixed - may have to unlink/re-link.
Warner Bros.: redeem via myuv.com - pushes into iTunes @ 4K no if available as UHD on VUDU. Otherwise, try redeeming via MA, first.
Sony: redeem via Movies Anywhere. This will get your 4K entitlement into iTunes, but will never show up in your UV locker. <- This may not be important if you don't plan on going outside the MA ecosystem.
Disney: redeem via MA app
Universal: redeem via iTunes - goes into iTunes @ 4K. Redeem code in UV as well to get it in that locker.
Paramount: redeem via iTunes - goes into iTunes @ 4K. Redeem code in UV as well to get it in that locker.
Lionsgate: I'm going to hold off on redeeming any of their UHD codes until the figure out what they're doing with MA.

Some of these were shot on film (e.g. Dracula, Starship Trooper) so the original resolution exceeds 4K digital and a new transfer from film to a 4K DI should look superior (if done properly). Also, some of the early Bluray releases (such as Dracula) looked atrocious and a 4K restoration was greatly needed. Not to mention a higher bitrate and the improved HDR and sound benefits the other poster mentioned. I've even seen films transferred from a 2K digital intermediate which looked amazing and better than the Bluray. There is more to UHD than 4K resolution. And there can be good and bad transfers on UHD just like there was on 2K Blur-ray.
If you read the reviews on Blu-ray.com you can learn which of these deserve to be upgraded to UHD discs in your collection, which don't look noticeably better than the Blu-Ray, and which should be avoided entirely.
I am definitely picking up Dracula and Starship troopers since I wanted them anyway and this is a decent price.

Half of these I have rewatched too many times as they are some of my favorite movies. I'll wait till when they are $5 like the blurays are in a few more years.

I do not have a 4k player, but I could stream in 4k. I looked at Vudu and they don't offer a 4k stream of Starship troopers. If I buy one of these, is there a way to stream the 4k?

If you're playing the BB to AMZN trade in game... 0 Dark 30 + Leon = $48+ in your pocket.

Boom!

(I'm sure something will go wrong and I'll get stuck with 2 copies of 2 movies that are good, but not that good that I need 2 copies. You know? Frown )

2 copies of same title, then you have to wait a few months to trade that same title again.

For some stupid reason, they only include the Digital HDX 1080p with UHD discs.

Good deal. Can always return the movies to BB if you can't sell them to Amz?
