If anyone would like to send a relatively unscratched replacement disc to Australia, I'd be happy to of course pay postage and handling cost. The 4K disc isn't available here, and I'd love to have it, even with the fold-down 'mono'. I can of course remit costs via Paypal.
“To our valued customers:
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment recently instituted a replacement program for consumers who purchased the September 8, 2020 release of Psycho on Blu-ray and 4K UHD included in the Psycho – 60th Anniversary Edition and The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection. The initial run of the film’s Blu-ray and 4K UHD discs produced inadvertently omitted Psycho’s original 1960 mono track. Due to an unintended error, certain consumers received a replacement disc from this original batch of discs, instead of the newly corrected version. We have identified those impacted and will be resending the correct version as soon as possible. To receive an updated Psycho disc, please visit the UPHE Support website (https://www.uphe.com/en/contact-support) or directly email [email protected]. If you have already submitted a request for and/or already received a replacement disc, you will receive the corrected one once it is ready – you do not need to submit another request. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.”
Haven't some reported that the "replacement" discs with the same error have different file dates? That would seem to indicate they replicated the error on new discs, and didn't really correct anything.Due to an unintended error, certain consumers received a replacement disc from this original batch of discs, instead of the newly corrected version.
"Those responsible have been sacked."Good news, everyone. The Digital Bits has heard from Universal regarding the messed up replacement disc.

In addition to your praise, Matt, I can attest to my 4K/UHD disc of “The Birds” as also being the finest I have ever seen it, to boot.Last night I streamed The Birds in 4K/HDR, and I agree with others that this is the best it has ever looked.
