I hope selling discs in 4K UHD doesn't affect also selling on Blu-Ray.
As someone who isn't 4K viewable, it is distressing not to be able to see the new Giant restoration.
I have many 3D titles that I am not willing to give up, so I can't move to 4K viewable until manufacturers bring back 3D...
Apparently, the June releases will be a Judy Garland triple release (possibly tied to her 100th birthday June 7th)
Me And My Gal
No news if these will be all the June titles or not.
Actually, that is not true. There are many, many titles shown on HBO Max that are not Blu-Ray ready
Each month in the HBO Max thread, new titles are discussed, and while they may be in HD, they haven’t been fully cleaned up/restored

Of course we don't know what was being worked on when the ax fell earlier. Did that work just stop?
If the staff was 65% done on something when everything stopped, theoretically it would only require 35% effort to finish. They would necessarily have to start at the beginning on some...
I’ve seen you say that ‘asset protection’ drives these restorations. But who at these companies care about asset preservation? I thought all the people who care have been let go.
How do these assets increase the bottom line for the bean counters who run/own these companies?
Who benefits from...
I've seen (and read reports) of OCNs being used and less than stellar discs being produced. And I've seen (and read about) the opposite - later generation images as the source producing fantastic results.
I feel it the the primary source is less important than the talents and skills involved...
Except that’s not demonstrably true. Hundreds of titles have an HD streaming version but, so far, restorations have been done primarily for titles getting a Blu-Ray release.
If restorations start being done for streaming, then physical will become just that, a byproduct - essentially screwing...
