    Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection in 4K

    I had issues as well, with the single code from the US 4K release. Emailing Warner and WBshop.com got me nowhere! Best resolution was for me to online chat with Flixster video support. They "reset" my code, and I re-redeemed via myuv.com/redeem and everything worked as expected. Took < 5min :)...

    Are there any cases where streaming is better than physical release?

    Top Gun on iTunes uses the newest transfer with full grain intact, no DNR! This originates from the transfer done for the 3D version. All 2D Blu-ray versions use a very scrubbed transfer. Also, Silence of the Lambs is available for 4K streaming via VUDU. Same with The Conjuring 1/2 and the...

    I don't expect iTunes to drop the "initial" tag indicating 4K + DV/HDR, as I think they consider that "available". Those tags are even shown in iTunes Store iOS app, for movies you own.

    Robert, I think Apple "fixed" that situation where you could actually have a HD + Dolby Vision/HDR on a title. All my titles that did that, reverted back to regular HD, about 3 days ago.

    I realized I don't have any Paramount UHD Blu-rays... how do they instruct you to redeem their codes?

    Yup, that's a real problem. Which is why I will only redeem Sony codes via SonyPicturesRewards from now on, as redeeming via VUDU or MA is too risky.

    Do they show up on your SonyPicturesStore and/or myuv.com libraries?

    OK, here's my new strategy for 4K codes. And I come at this from the perspective of an Apple TV 4K user, and I prefer that as my 4K streaming platform: Fox: redeem via iTunes - pushes into iTunes @ 4K no problem. However, only SD/HD in VUDU, although this might get corrected. Warner Bros...

    Yup what you’re describing makes sense.

    Ugh. Similar story just happened to me with the Underworld UHD code. I redeemed via MA app, and ported into VUDU as SD :angry: It's also MIA from Sony Pictures, UV and iTunes. From now only, I'm only going to redeem Sony UHD codes via the Sony Pictures site, and hope VUDU eventually offers...

    Press Release Announcing the launch of MOVIES ANYWHERE

    For a couple of days (now dead), a $2 HDX MD2D convert of a title that iTunes has in 4K (e.g. Dracula 1992 and Pacific Rim) did come over to Apple TV 4K and play back in 1200p + DV/HDR. But they patched that, so now it just plays back as HD. Not sure about other services outside of iTunes, but I...

    That's why I never really redeemed codes until last week. I have about 10 unopened UHD titles, I'm still debating on what to do about redeeming the codes. Here's the issue with Sony, I'm going to use 1984 Ghostbusters UHD code from the 4K disc as an example, as this title is available from...

    Mark, your experience matches mine. What other 4K Sony title is available on iTunes (aside from Baby Driver) that we could try to redeem via UHD code? EDIT: original Ghostbusters is behaving the same as Baby Driver. I redeemed the UHD code for Ghostbusters on the Sony Pictures site, and it only...

    Press Release Announcing the launch of MOVIES ANYWHERE

    ^^^ Yes that was the case until about 24 hours ago. Now, you need to either redeem a UHD code, or originally purchased via iTunes in HD to get the 4K version. Yes I believe it’s still on the AppleTV interface. Just weird that it’s MIA in iTunes. Yes, I recommend redeeming via iTunes, but I...

    It does. Baby Driver is not listed on the iTunes Store on Mac as being available in 4K.
