FWIW, I received my BR + Digital today from the Disney Movie Club. As you indicated, it is only DTS-MA, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Movies Anywhere code gave me HD video with Atmos Audio. I thought it was an error, but when I played a sample from my Amazon Fire Stick, my AVR (Anthem 720) does indicate Atmos.I received a review copy in HD Blu-ray, as opposed to 4k.
While I’m grateful to have received - they’re apparently short of product - I don’t generally review 4k product in standard Blu.
I was going to make an exception, as this is not a true 4k production, when I noted that they’ve crippled the Blu-rays audio-wise, as Dolby Atmos has been removed from the mix. This is a Blu-ray fail for me.
Why should those who have made the rather expensive upgrade to Atmos, be forced to view in a non-height format, because they’ve not made the additional expenditure toward 4k player/panel/projector?
I’m aware that a similar argument can be made for the inclusion of 3D, but that’s a far smaller, albeit, not less passionate audience.
From what I read, Endgame is one of the first MA titles with Atmos.
