Just FYI, Amazon has Spaceballs in 4k included with Prime in case you just need a quick 4k Spaceballs fix and don't want to pay $5.

If this studio was MA it would transfer out in 4k BUT they are not so it's iTunes only. Always check 4ksheet.com to confirm.

In itunes if it says 4k when you click purchase that's the quality you will get. Watch out for bundles as they are likely to be HD and transfer out as such.


Yes itune HD purchases will allow 4K playback only in iTunes for free, sans Disney or if the movie is re-added by the studio making it a different version. But for exporting out to MA in 4K, you have to have made the purchase while it was 4K at the time.

Doesnt itunes upgrade your purchases on itunes to 4k when they become available? Theres no option to choose 4k or hd if a film is in 4k. I've been buying HD thinking that.

Yes it upgrades hd purchases to 4k ON ITUNES, but unless you buy it when it lists 4k it will not transfer with MA at 4k even if it is upgraded on iTunes. Since I prefer using apples streaming this doesn't bother me because I know if anything I purchase gets a 4k upgrade iTunes will upgrade me, and they have the best streaming quality of any of the streaming services. I honestly can't watch certain shows streaming anymore because of how bad compression is on blacks. After watching many things on iTunes it's my preferred streaming platform and with the Apple TV it's super intuitive, and they constantly have movies going on sale for $5 and iTunes gift cards can easily be bought at 15-20% off bringing cost at around $4 a movie.

iTunes only upgrades movies redeemed or purchased through iTunes. Not the ones that transfer over by MA. And as far as I can tell, iTunes only upgrades regular films, not director cuts, extended editions, or any other SE

what's with all of these movies getting 4k releases on digital but not on bluray? Anyways, Silence of the Lambs seems to look better on the criterion 1080 bluray fyi but this is also a good deal.
