The first 20 goes through Die Another Day from 2002, does 4K really matter for older movies? Can you see the film grain more clearly? I guess if your 4k tv doesn't have a good upscaler it will help.

It's freaking free for prime members!! What else do you want? Do you overprivileged millenials seriously have anything that you don't complain about?

What do you want them to do? Go back in time and reshoot everything in modern 4k cameras?

FILM is higher quality than 4k. The only films that have grain are the directors who wanted them that way (Coppola's Godfather)

Close Encounters of the Third Kind is another one that I heard was intentionally shot grainy.

Good catch, but I don't think we need to worry. It would be pretty awful for a prank this year with everything going on.

Not sure if you are serious, but I was suggesting 1080p would be sufficient and 4k would just be a waste of bandwidth for old movies. I've seen some films where dark scenes look very grainy with higher resolution.

I think it's only youtube downgrading in US so far. I'm surprised how well our net is holding up. Hopefully people will have their homework and tellocommute done by prime time. My april fools remark was just to remind me. So many free offers, even PLEX is giving stuff away and that is mostly 1080p and looks it.

4K video compression (mostly x265) is different than the compression of regular HD (mostly x264). Video in x265 is almost twice as small as x264. You'll be streaming more or less the same amount of data whether you stream HD or UHD.

Confirmed that all the movies are 4K and available. I searched on James Bond movies 4K and they all came up (but needed to add the 4K to most).
