    I know, guys. That's why I posted that Disney is the exception to giving 4K and Atmos...

    Just make the Atmos track available across all services. Why should I have to go deal with the Vudu app if I have the purchase available in iTunes?

    One other thing about Atmos and the different streamers, if a movie has Atmos the only way to get the Atmos on Vudu is if you watch it on a 4K tv, for some reason Vudu turns off the Atmos on none 4K displays.

    iTunes does not do that. If it’s Atmos it’s Atmos no matter the display.

    My sister is visiting me this weekend and knowing I love and collect movies she brought me some 4K discs as a belated birthday gift. Of course, one of those 4K titles that she just bought the other day at BB was "The Karate Kid".:) Well, when I bought the HD Digital from iTunes back on Christmas Day for $4.99 it upgraded to 4K on iTunes earlier this week, but still remained HD on Vudu. Just a minute ago, I redeemed that 4K disc code and it upgraded my Vudu HD to 4K with Dolby Atmos.

    True, but I've seen many titles upgraded later to include Dolby Atmos.

    That's true about Disney titles. Like "The Karate Kid" (Sony), I had another title "Backdraft" (Universal) that I purchase in HD from iTunes back in February for $4.99 just upgraded to 4K on iTunes. It still remains HD on Vudu.

    I totally agree with you. The industry needs to clean this crap up and we need all of the studios participation in MA.

    I’ve had the Blu-ray for years and haven’t got around to watching it (of course I’ve seen the movie in other formats) but am wondering if this one merits a 4K upgrade or not. The mere $5 price tag is probably as painless as you can get.

    I only had it on an old non-anamorphic DVD so that was a no brainer for me.

    Thoughts on Welcome to Marwen?

    Looks like it’s $10 on iTunes 4K.

    Keep us posted on your thoughts of these films. Have seen the sales but haven't partaken of them yet.

    The Mule is a definite buy for me. From what I gather it's a good film and it might be Eastwood's last acting performance.

    And it has the 40th Anniversary Shorts Series! All 6 with a running time of over an hour! These aren’t even on the disc.

    Great bargain.

    Tino, do you know if those Shorts are included in the Alien Anthology Blu-ray set?
