Like the Titanic?
Forbes is clickbait scareware and should not be trusted for ANY industry. They have severely fallen from their heights.
Buy via Microsoft, ports via MA to iTunes and Vudu. $60 for non 4k, but should upgrade if and when they re-release it.... hmmm. I still don't have them, but have been waiting for a disk re-release...
I didn't know that Microsoft offered free 4K upgrades like Apple is doing.
It's movies anywhere so, who the hell knows.
I know that Apple/iTunes won’t upgrade MA purchases or items that port into iTunes via MA.
So for me personally, if I order Star Wars digitally, it would only be through iTunes so that I could preserve the option of getting that upgrade if one is ever made available.
I thought it was GooglePlay that was also doing free 4K upgrades. And because of that Disney properties also barrs 4K content from them like they do at iTunes. I haven't heard anything about Microsoft's policies.
If HTF ever wants to open a shop and sell t-shirts...
I see that "Glory" digital stream has upgraded to 4K/Dolby Atmos. I purchased it back in 2017 for $4.99
There are few titles that have quietly been replaced by 4K versions:
-The Day the Earth Stood Still
-Game of Death
-Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Remember, some of them are 4K only without HDR or Dolby Vision.
I noticed that when I watched The Spy Who Loved Me the other night after buying all the Bond films.
That was a one time deal on Google as part of a promotion, unless you redeemed on MA as 4K and Google didn't have that title in 4K yet.
None of the Bonds have HDR.
Is it needed?
Perhaps not, but they'll eventually have it added as I reviewed a listing earlier today in which just about every Bond film had a new 4K DCP done for it. It's only a matter of time.
Nope, I'm pretty sure free upgrades are Google's standard policy for titles purchased through them. Just like iTunes you can't even purchase plain old HD when 4K is available. Here was the announcement from Google last October:
Hill Street Blues Complete Series on sale for $19.99 iTunes today.
This would be my first purchase for digital media. However a few questions if anyone can help.
On the review section of iTunes, and there are only two, one poster stated seasons 1-3 are SD and 4-7 are HD.
The other reviewer stated the closed captioning doesn’t work. This is a matter of concern for me as I have to have the CC or subtitles.
Best way for me to corroborate these? I have the set on DVD but was thinking of upgrading. $20 is cheap.
You can buy it then try it out and if there is a problem you can request a refund and state the reason for the refund. If you go that route, do so very quickly as iTunes is pretty good on such refund requests.
Hey, I just checked and it looks like the first three seasons are indeed in SD. @Jasper70
