    Has anybody bought any of these? These are 4K titles that were originally on Sony's now defunct download service. They have never been on iTunes or Vudu, but Amazon and FandangoNow have them for sale. The problem is, of course that neither Amazon nor FandangoNow have desirable streaming platforms. As they are Movies Anywhere titles, I would imagine that if you purchased them them would import into MA as 4K, but would the MA app even have them available as 4K playback?
    Here's a short list (I'm sure there are many more that I haven't stumbled on yet)

    It Happened One Night
    On the Waterfront
    The Guns of Navarone
    Funny Girl
    The Way We Were
    The Mask of Zorro

    For $18.99-19.99 for each title and it's Amazon. No thanks!

    You sure about that? I own most of these and I think I got them from either iTunes or Vudu.

    I never buy digital titles from Amazon or Fandango.

    Edit. Nevermind. Missed the 4K part.

    Hmmmm. Guns of Navarone in 4K? I'm tempted.

    Many of those titles were on Sony's 4K survey last month as possible upcoming 4K disc titles.
