    Well, it is available in 4K on Amazon (I know, Robert, you hate Amazon). But you both missed my point - Air Force One did not populate to all of my MA services:

    Vudu: HDX
    Microsoft: HD
    iTunes: HD (per my iTunes software)
    Amazon Prime: UHD
    Google Play: not available
    FandangoNow: not available

    The movie is indeed available on GP and FN, but if you look at the title, there is no MA or even a UV logo for Air Force One on those two services.

    That is because it is in 4K. You know how Amazon loves to hide their 4K content, even content you own....

    I’ve been looking and it keeps saying it’s unavailable.

    I already owned it on Vudu iTunes and Amazon so I wouldn’t know if it populated.

    And I do see it’s available in UHD on Amazon.

    Did you guys redeem your code and if so, where did you redeem it at? I haven't redeem my code yet because of this link. Look at the columns for Air Force One. Also, I can't find Air Force One as available for purchase/rent using Roku 4K, Apple 4K nor even on my desktop. It keeps saying "Air Force One" is unavailable.

    I redeemed Air Force One on Movies Anywhere, and it indicates through the MA transaction history that it was redeemed as 4K. On Vudu the film is showing up as HDX. On Amazon it shows as "Ultra HD", while other recent 4K disc redemptions (Avengers: Infinity Wars, Ant-Man and the Wasp, etc.) show up as "4K UHD". I am not sure of the difference on Amazon. It shows up as HD in iTunes and Microsoft. The film doesn't show up in my Google or FandangoNow libraries at all.

    Right, there is no 4K/UHD available on Vudu or iTunes for Air Force One. That might change at a later date, but as of now, there isn't a 4K stream available on either service. Also, I found several titles like It Happened One Night as UHD titles on Amazon that are not so on Vudu or iTunes. No question, I think that's an upconverted HD stream and I'm wondering the same for Air Force One and several other classic titles that are showing UHD tag on them.

    That was my experience. When contacting FN and GP, they said that they were never granted MA rights to that title. MA says it's a mapping issue that they are trying to work with FN, GP, and Sony on. Sony is completely befuddled, and keep saying "But you did get it to redeem on Vudu, right?"

    On a side note, the movie isn't available at all (I couldn't even purchase it if I wanted to) on Sony's own ULTRA service.

    I didn't even know there was a Roku app for Movies Anywhere.
