Buy the first one then hit yourself in the head repeatedly with a hammer until you pass out, which is approximately the enjoyment value you'd get from watching the sequels.
😂 I actually haven't seen 2 or 3 but want the set to watch just once. Maybe I can just buy 1 and have someone lend me a MA screen pass. Anyone want to trade screen passes?

Quote from dubie1977 :
In addition to the MA app any platform you have linked will also support UHD in their own way.
Not necessarily. I don't know if it's contract timings or some other issue, but providers don't immediately have all copies of a movie just because it's MA. For example, there's the recent front-page deal of 4K movies from Amazon for $5 - one of them was Labyrinth, which Vudu does not have the 4K copy of right now. I'm sure the license will carry over once Vudu picks up the 4K copy but it's not there yet.

Quote from quinton1978 :
Cowheed stop living in the past and speading fake news.4k streaks will still look better then a blu-ray.I just brought tenet and total recall on disc and watch them digitally and physically and I can't really tell much of a difference.That's was a thing of the past two years ago I watch a side by side viewing of Endgame on YouTube and the reviews showed Hardly any difference between the two.There nothing we can do to stop tech from moving forward I notice stores carrying less physical films or even 4k players Walmart sells like 3 and Sam clubs sells 0 as Bob Dylan said the times they are changing
Not sure if you're serious or trolling, but I've been living in the "future" since far before most people. I cut the cord on cable in 2008, was such an early adopter of Netflix that I needed a special disc for it to run on my PS3, and now, I run my own server via Plex and also stream on any number of platforms.

Digital has the capability to look and sound just as good as Blu-ray, but it won't for a while. Reason? Bandwidth. A competent UHD 4k blu-ray rip, encoded with a modern codec, averages 50-60 gigs, streaming something like that is currently prohibitively expensive for the provider on the large scale, and considering Comcast, the only ISP in town for most people, has a 1.2tb monthly limit, the vast majority of people aren't going to be able to view streaming digital purchases on the same level as physical media for a while.

For comparison, UHD blu-ray streams an average of 80Mbps to 144Mbps. Vudu's 4k tops out at 11Mbps, Netflix at 15Mbps, Fandango at 10-20Mbps, Google Play at 12-15Mbps, and Apple TV at 25Mbps.

New codecs make it easier to compress without issues, but as the signal becomes more complex, it's harder and harder to encode equivalent to UHD. Grainy movies shot on film or older movies are harder to encode than new animation. Dark scenes will almost ALWAYS betray bitrates on streaming services.

"Looks good enough to me" isn't valid data. Nor does it address the fact that if your digital platform of choice ever goes out of business, or if they decide to change their contract with the user, you're SOL and your collection disappears.

Quote from Shake-N-Bake :
How are you getting hyped for 4K Blu-Rays by the title? It clearly says, "Select digital 4K UHD movies..." Digital is in the title, before 4K UHD. Lol. Every one of these digital deals always says "digital" before 4K.
Nobody's fault but my own. Just very quickly skimming titles and I see a movie poster and "4K and UHD" in all caps.

You sound like you know some things, but you clearly don't know much about streaming. Movies Anywhere movies are extremely safe. Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon and others would all have to stop streaming peoples libraries for you to lose you collection. I don't see that happening, but you are right hell could freeze over or you could have a fire and lose your physical collection.

Anyone who purchased - what audio formats are supported? Is Dolby Atmos available for these movies? Thanks in advance.

I know plenty about streaming, and there's a reason I concentrated so heavily on bitrate and less on the safety of any given collection. Of course it's not LIKELY that one of these services fail, but I wouldn't want to put money on my collection being around in twenty years on pretty much any of these platforms, if only due to the constant flux of digital services.

I mean, Google has axed more services than most companies have started. As someone who has been in the Google ecosystem since 2004 and is currently migrating to the very inferior "Youtube Music" from "Google Play Music", I'm experiencing this firsthand. You can no longer purchase music on the new platform, but luckily, DRM-free downloads are built into the platform, so it's not a loss.

Sure, but that'd be insured, at least.

Look, I'm a huge proponent of digital sales. I've got over 2000 games in Steam and at least a few movies on each one of those services, but I'm not going to pretend there's no chance any of these services go away. Corporations are fickle beasts. If something becomes not profitable, it'll go, regardless of your opinions on it,

That said, I care far more about the fidelity gap than I worry about losing access to my movies.

I own too many 4K movies...I literally cannot get 4 titles because I own nearly all of these. I can get 3 in my cart.

Accounting for the efficiency of the codecs, the video component of a UHD digital stream is pretty comparable to that of a regular, HD bluray. The audio component of the digital stream is compressed, vs uncompressed for bluray, but you'll need pretty good speakers to be able to tell any difference. The addition of HDR on a digital UHD stream can be a game changer if you have a good HDR TV, and in my opinion makes a digital UHD stream a superior option to a regular Bluray.

A UHD bluray is much higher bitrate than a UHD stream, but requires a quite expensive setup to really see the benefits and is starting to hit the point of diminishing returns. Still, if you have the setup, it could be worth buying instead of digital.

While somewhat true that you won't see differences in a ton of scenes unless you're looking, UHD blu ray are already using HEVC! Of course some streaming services use their own codecs, but all things equal, the codecs for video are pretty comparable between UHD blu ray and many digital platforms, the blu ray just has a far higher bitrate.

UHD blu ray have HDR, it's not a digital exclusive thing! I just watched Parasite with HDR, actually!

Honestly, the biggest differences in quality can be seen in darker scenes - even on Netflix, which is pretty decent (and actually higher bitrate than VUDU 4k), you can see blocking in shadows on even a lower-range 4K tv.

Inception is free (with ads) on the Roku Channel, just watched it yesterday lol. But good ideal if you want to 'own' it.

Get the Movies Anywhere (MA) app on your smart TV. Connect your movies anywhere account to the provider (fanflix) and you should see your purchased movies there on MA app.
