    Not meaning to step on Tino's reply, but one super easy way to contact Apple for any problem is to just open the "Apple Support" app and you can call them directly or have them call YOU at any time you choose so you don't have to wait on hold...

    The majority of them are Phase 2 or higher. The only Phase 1 is "Incredible Hulk." I was hoping the first "Iron Man" was part of the sale as that is the only MCU movie I'm missing in my digital library.

    Vudu has Iron Man on sale (along with a bunch of other Marvel movies)

    Edit: Looks like its 14.99 though.

    Just so everyone is aware, the iTunes version does NOT include the Atmos soundtrack that's available with the 4K UHD release. It's DD 5.1. Something to keep in mind when purchasing digital vs. disc. Do your research before pulling the trigger on a seemingly good streaming deal. This kind of thing has bitten me in the derriere a couple of times already.

    Although it's worth keeping in mind that iTunes adds Atmos and even 4K to titles you own all the time, so if a movie you are interested in is cheap enough...

    I don’t think that’s happened for many if any Disney movies though.

    There's no guarantee that Atmos will be added to any title that doesn't have it at the time of purchase.

    Worth noting is Karate Kid is a MA title so it ported over to vudu in UHD which does include Atmos.

    Good to know, but what a PITA.

    I do not think any Disney titles are available in 4K on iTunes. Disney doesn’t like Apple’s policy of upgrading titles from HDX to 4K at no cost, so they are not supplying 4K transfers to Apple.
