You don't really own any digital video purchase, you're only paying for a license to the content for as long as the vendor operates.

The licenses are stored in the vendor's systems, but you can download copies. They are of course DRM locked, because you don't truly own it.

Committing to one store does limit you to what they're willing to sell and their prices; however, most of them do participate in at least one of two "license locker" services, Ultraviolet and MoviesAnywhere.

Vudu and FandangoNow participate in both MA and Ultraviolet. Google, iTunes, Microsoft, and Amazon only participate in MoviesAnywhere. The studios and publishers also need to join these locker services, so there will still be some studios that will only work in the exact store you "buy" from. Lionsgate is a notable holdout that won't let their movies be transferred like this. Ultraviolet is objectively better for consumers, so most studios and vendors are prioritizing MA because its terms are better for them.

You'd have to check the description at each vendor for each movies, but in general quality is not there. One vendor might not carry the 4K copy when others do, or might have a little better audio than the others, so discs are still vastly superior if you care about anything more than simple screen resolution.

Fantastic find. Good job.

Lawrence of Arabia in 4K from iTunes transfers to movies anywhere in 4K. Perfect.

Not sure if this is the place for this, so if not, and someone is willing to take the time and drop me a message I would appreciate it, but I have all of these on Blu-ray (and 2,500 or so other movies as well) and I am late to the 4K party, but how does one "own" these digitally? Are they stored on a device? Stored on an online account? If I get an account (Google was mentioned?) does that limit me to buying whatever they will sell and/or host? Do these have the lossless HD Audio codecs too, or is there still an advantage to UHD physical discs vs the digital versions? (the reason I bought so heavily into Blu-ray)

Sorry for the silly questions..... had always been a physical media guy because quality > convenience for me, but will switch if the quality is there.


EDIT: Bridge over River Kwai is a fantastic film...... the code-red mountain dew generation can have their crazy rich asians.

I'm still unclear how itunes 4k works. So do I need a 4k apple TV. Or will hooking my macbook up to a 4k tv work. Some say i won't get 4k unless its streamed from the apple TV.
