    General Discussion Streaming Frustrations

    Our Roku 3 does not have profiles, but our new Roku Ultra does. On the other hand, some SD 4:3 TV shows I ripped from DVDs to a USB stick and play with the Roku Media Player app appear correctly on screen with the Roku 3, with black side bars. But the same files are stretched to fill the screen...

    General Discussion Digital Movie/TV Deals

    Does anyone have and can comment on the iTunes version of Out of Africa? I never upgraded my DVD to Blu-ray. The 2010 Blu-ray was supposedly very bad, but the 2012 was a significant improvement, based on the reviews. I just wonder what the digital version is like. On sale now for $4.99.

    General Discussion Digital Movie/TV Deals

    I ordered the $100 Apple card from BestBuy.com Wednesday morning using the page that has the offer clearly explained. I got the Apple digital code email within a half hour. But neither the checkout page nor the email said anything about the bonus BestBuy GC, which was a little disconcerting, and...

    LG offers $1,200 Labor Day discount on 77-inch OLED TV

    If I wanted to buy this weekend I'd want to support Value, and probably get the calibration from them. But the sale supposedly was going to end yesterday, so I was just pointing out the price discrepancy. So back off Sam. Jeez yourself.

    LG offers $1,200 Labor Day discount on 77-inch OLED TV

    Definitely my thought, but I notice that the valueelectronics.com website shows a sale price of $3997, whereas it's $200 less everywhere else. This offer is tempting but my timeline was more for Black Friday. So hopefully prices like this (or lower! :) ) will be around then.

    Can I Subscribe to TCM?

    I ditched Comcast cable TV in Dec in favor of YouTubeTV, largely for cost reasons, but also because of their moving of TCM to the higher tier. I've been happy with it. I will note that a few movies on TCM are "not available for streaming" - not very many, just some random titles show up that...

    Some Apple TV+ shows streamed free for a limited time

    I've watched the first 3 episodes of For All Mankind on my Roku, via the tv app, one each day. If you tend to like dramas about the NASA space program this is pretty well done, IMO. With an "alternate history" twist.

    Win a copy of The Ten Commandments Special Edition Blu-ray Digibook

    It's been awhile. Time to watch it again.

    General Discussion Digital Movie/TV Deals

    Isn't the iTunes M*A*S*H also cropped to widescreen? I think I've read comments that it's well done, and HD would be nice, but some would object to not having the OAR option. I have the DVDs and always preferred to turn off the laugh track. The show had enough natural humor and timing to not...

    IMDb Streaming Service (I mean, srsly?)

    Been watching Columbo and The Rockford Files on IMDB via Amazon Prime. I'm not a big fan of the ad breaks, especially because they can be extremely repetitive and a bit too frequent as the program goes on. But if there is no ad-free streaming option it's still nice to have an option other than...

    Some Twilight Time Discs No Longer Playing

    I checked my copy of Nicholas and Alexandra, which was still shrink-wrapped and thus had never been played before. Checked every chapter for a short while and It played fine on my Oppo BD-83 player. I don't see any IFPI codes stamped on the inner ring. I see what looks to be MWS2 and M1S1...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Force of Evil -- in Blu-ray

    That's strange. I don't have this Olive Blu-ray, but the review at DVDBeaver mentions the extra, and has screenshots of the menu page showing the Special Feature option and of Scorcese from it. Reggie, when did you acquire your disc? Maybe Olive lost the rights to that Scorcese intro, and...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ Logan Lucky -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Well played, Mr. Harris. I won't spoil the fun. :) As to the "newcomer," note that the credits in the film do say this: "Introducing Daniel Craig"

    0/5 rating for Special Features seems amiss.

    George Gently, does anyone like this Brit TV Series?

    I watched the first several series on Netflix and the last couple on AcornTV. Agree with Bernard. The characters continue to develop and the show is well done. I'm sad it's now over. Series 8 was the last. I'd say it's well worth your time if you like Brit detective shows like I do. Foyle's War...

    Little House on the Prairie: building the best possible collection

    Apologies if this has already been posted or is known. No doubt Blu-ray is the way to go for the serious collector of this series. But just for information for those who don't mind "owning" some of their HD content via streaming video, Vudu.com currently is selling the entire Little House on...

    Doing anything new the might get you blocked?

    Same here. Apparently our companies subscribe to the same internet filtering software/list and HTF was added recently. I think the page that popped up just said "Entertainment" for the reason. Which is odd because many other similar "entertainment" sites are not blocked. Oh well, guess my...

    "Hawaii Five 0"-Season 5 only on DVD!

    Ironic how the trend on releases like this is to issue them in lower resolution SD while the manufacturers are unleashing all these 4K TVs, on which the upconverted DVDs won't look good at all. I'm content to watch a show like H50 on broadcast cable in HD, without collecting it. Past seasons...

    My Fair Lady 50th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    To me it's not a question of the price itself, but the paltry 10% discount off MSRP that the retailers are offering. Why not the typical 30% or more discount on this one? I will get it eventually but I think I'll wait a bit to see if it drops to a more normal level.

    Matchstick Men (2003) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    Been wondering when this one would come out in Blu-ray. It's a good movie. Good acting by Nic Cage as an OCD con man. Love the Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass in the soundtrack as well.

    Why doesn't Netflix bother with Olive or Shout! or Kino titles?

    Dick is not asking about streaming. He is asking why doesn't Netflix have those discs (Blu-ray and/or DVD) available for rental through their mail service.

    X-Men: Days of Future Past won't play on Blu-Ray player

    Brian, not sure which OPPO BD player you have, but I don't think that's true. OPPO did release new firmware for this very issue, dated Nov. 26. Here is a link to the page for the BDP-83, the model I have. I installed this new firmware, but I still didn't try playing the X-Men disc, although I do...
