So how sure are we that iTunes gives free upgrades to 4K for everything we buy as HD thru them? And it's only for content bought from them, excluding use of codes that come w/ physical media (or acquired elsewhere, but available thru Movies Anywhere), right?

Is there any official policy about that?

Wish Vudu would at least provide option to upgrade (from HDX) to 4K for say $2-3.

I was redeeming my digital code for Jaws on Movies Anywhere, and noticed that The Goonies is still showing up as 4K in my library there, but it doesn't mention anything about HDR.

It's showing HD on Movies Anywhere for me.
I have an answer for that. The resolution that imports into MA (and is locked in) is the resolution iTunes is showing at the time of purchase. Robert bought it before it upgraded to 4K so it imported into MA at HD, Scott bought it during the period it was 4K at iTunes so it imported into MA at 4K. Something to be aware of when making purchases.

For anyone interested, I noticed that Amazon, iTunes and Vudu have the movie Waves -- which came and went in theaters so quickly last December that I didn't make it -- as a 99 cent rental this week. I wanted to see it so am considering doing the discounted rental, but there's one thing that's holding me back from that.

Usually, A24 releases (which Waves is) end up having their first subscription streaming window on Amazon Prime, but it is unclear as to when that will start for Waves. I'd like to wait for that because I already have Prime so wouldn't need to pay at all, but probably what will happen is that it will show up with the membership as soon as I end up paying to rent it. :laugh:

I'm debating "Underwater" and "Cats". Too many people have dog out "Cats".;) Any thoughts on those that have seen "Underwater"? I'm debating "The Photograph" as a 4K purchase.

I have not seen "Underwater" but I have been looking at it for a long time.

It hasn't gotten great reviews. The feedback I have read from people on Facebook is that it's "okay"

The only great thing I have heard is that it has a killer LFE channel.

I'll buy it for $5. However, I haven't been looking at Cheap Charts for weeks. How much is it?

I almost bought "Waves" a while back. I might buy this time at $7.99
