Then you are actually missing out on the best picture quality and lossless sound experience.
If only iTunes (and the other streaming providers) would actually stream movies at the same (or better) bit rate as physical media. But they don't. So I keep buying physical media. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that this set comes with a digital code included. But when I want the best presentation I can obtain for a particular movie, physical media is almost always it.
The studio is likely looking to hit a specific sale number on the previously released sets before announcing it and setting a date. Would not surprise me to see it pushed back to the Fall.

Quote from OPTICSOURCE :
I'll wait until the overhyped Middle Earth Edition is released, and then get THIS for $49.99.

What "new footage" can that possibly include? Viggo kissing and head-butting everyone? It's all been seen on YouTube anyway.
Well I don't believe they said "new footage", it was "new bonus content".
They didn't even say(promise) "new" 4K transfer, it most likely will be the same as this.

As someone pointed out what more "bonus content" could they add and good will it be.

I already have bonus content on the BD version, didn't feel the need to have it here.

When I finally realized object based soundtracks were the real deal and decided to upgrade.
This movie(s) was at the very top of my list of anticipation!

Thank God PJ did not disappoint, this is a fantastic reference transfer!
That is saying a lot since the BD version was also.

Quote from Hooksta :
I really would like to own a 4K version like this but there are so many reviews about discs skipping. Anyone here own this set already? Just wondering if the discs might disagree with some 4K players and not others.
I have the Panny's 820 & 420 and no skipping for me.

I want to get this but I told myself I have to watch the movies I bought last month before I buy more. I'm really strict on myself.

I have the much cheaper LG ubk90 and about 1 in 3 discs skip/freeze/hang up. It's usually limited to 100gb three layer discs. It's very frustrating.

I bought this at MSRP $100 and even at that price it's worth it IMO. The picture upgrade as well as the Atmos soundtrack is phenomenal.

Can anyone owning this set confirm what is the supported audio formats on the 4K version. Does it have immersive audio (Atmos/DTS-X) or just surrounds (5/7 channel) alone?

Yes I had that player before, had issues with it also.

Quote from privater :
Reading the comments feel sad for those bought Bluray and think this is the end. Will check back when 8K remaster is a thing.
There will not be mainstream 8k discs. The human eye can't see a difference between 4k and 8k on a TV at normal seating distance, almost nothing is shot in 8k, and the discs couldn't hold 8k movies at a comparable bitrate.

Good point, and is logical considering he has apparently also shunned disk players, though doesn't explain why he felt compelled to post in a thread about films on disk.
It's like a pseudo humblebrag. To post about one's shunning of physical media in a thread about a deal on physical media though, I would say in response "weird flex but OK."

That's why I bought this on iTunes awhile back and just keep getting it upgraded with every new version. I'm shocked so many people still have a disc player. Haven't had one in years…
Until digital has the quality of a disc, discs won't go away. 4K digital is not the same quality as 4K physical.

Well technically it kinda has both. Main(core) codec is Dolby TrueHD 7.1.
On top of that you have the object based Dolby Atmos codec.
If you have a receiver that is capable of decoding object based "Atmos" you will get it, if not it will use main core codec.

The problem with this logic is that a lot of the 4k uhd Blu-rays now are upscaled from a 2k master even though they were shot at 4k+. I very much see studios releasing a lot of current feaux 4k titles in actual 4k after they are rerendered and slapping a 8k label on it after they upscaled the true 4k render to 8k.
