    Could be as I have that Criterion BD and in HD digital, but I did so by disc to digital on Vudu which means no 4K/DV on iTunes.

    Interesting that this happened within days of Peter Fonda's death.

    I'm happy with the 4K transfer from Criterion. Although it is downrezzed to standard Blu-Ray, the difference over all previous home video versions is huge.

    Redeemed it via D2D at Vudu years ago, transferred via MA to iTunes.

    Yup, that $9.99 for the Rambo Collection back in November worked out well.

    Anyone here have an Xfinity X1 box?
    MA is supposed to be partnered with MA and it is a linked up on my end but I can’t get any of my MA movies to show up on Xfinity.

    Yes, Tony, I have Comcast and an X1 convertor. I haven't checked in awhile to make sure they are still there, but I did link my Comcast account to Movies Anywhere when Comcast first became part of MA and all my films came through at that time. I have never tried to play any via the X1 box, though.

    EDIT: I just checked, and my MA films are all there. From the X1's main menu, select "Saved" and then "Purchases". I selected Apollo 13 from my library, and it started up after initially displaying the message "Xfinity On Demand".

    Vudu has finally upgraded their Field of Dreams and Apollo 13 to UHD, both have HDR-10.

    On a side note Rambo 3 @ Vudu finally plays back in UHD. It would only playback in HDX even though it said I owned UHD for the past month.

    That was part of the UV shutdown. I have a ton of movies on Vudu that are supposed to be 4K but Vudu does not have them in UHD yet, despite the "You own UHD" being displayed on Vudu.

    Yep and I have several titles saying they're in HD, but only play back in SD. I'm so sick of this stuff whether Vudu, Amazon or iTunes.

    That is the case for certain Sony titles but was not for Rambo 3. The issue wasn't because Vudu didn't have the UHD version they added the UHD version to their library early/mid Aug.

    Did Movies Anywhere make anybody else reconnect all of their retailers today?

    Yes, I had to agree to them sharing info and re-certify with my retailers.
