    Just happened to notice while watching Apollo 11 with my wife in 4K on iTunes that there are NEW digital exclusives.

    Feature Commentary
    Deleted Scenes
    Promos
    And more.

    What a great bonus surprise. A steal for $9.99.

    When We Left Earth-The NASA Missions is on sale for $9.99 on iTunes.

    Terrific mini series.

    Edit: Actually it appears that’s the regular price. It’s been on sale for $8.99

    Still a great bargain.

    Just picked up Mrs. Doubtfire in 4K on iTunes for $7.99 and Labyrinth in 4K on iTunes for $4.99.

    Mrs. Doubtfire ported over to Vudu as UHD, Labyrinth ported over to iTunes as HDX.

    At times, Vudu or ITunes don't have certain titles in 4K and that's the case with Labyrinth on Vudu. You can't assume that being available in 4K on one service will also be available as such on another service. I find that happens quite often.

    Definitely. I know from past experience that's a possibility whenever I buy in 4K from a different retailer. I just shared the information as a heads up for anybody else who buys from all Movies Anywhere e-tailers but only watches on Vudu.

    Even worse, though, are the many 4K titles that port over to Prime Video in HD, despite their being a 4K version available.

    Even though I have my Amazon account linked to Movies Anywhere, I have never bothered to try playing anything from my library there. I use Prime Video exclusively for included content, plus free rentals via accumulated digital credits from the "no rush" shipping option. If I am playing anything from my library (accumulated via purchases or redeemed digital codes), I use either iTunes or Vudu.

    I had planned on buying just the first two films on UHD disc when the price dropped, but at that price I bit on all four. I cannot see the discs getting down to $10 each for a very long time (if ever).

    If you're a serial fan iTunes is offering both Superman serials for $4.99 total. It's in the tv section with each chapter listed as an 'episode'. Looks like the same SD transfers as used for the DVDs but the price is right.

    I've been temped to bite on the complete Babylon 5 for $25 but these are the same problematic transfers as used for the DVDs where scenes with CGI are cropped to simulate widescreen (the show itself was filmed in widescreen but the effects were done 4:3). I'd rather wait for something better, as unlikely as it seems to be.

    I bought a copy of Oliver Stone's The Doors a couple of weeks ago in one of the sales for $4.99. I was pleasantly surprised to see it's already upgraded to 4K/Atmos/Dolby Vision.

    Are your Batman films still in 4K / Dolby Vision on Apple TV? We went to watch the first one tonight and it's only showing available as HD for all four films. Hopefully this is a temporary glitch and Apple gets it fixed soon. We watched something else instead (the 4K/HDR10 version of Live Free or Die Hard I bought for $5 a while back).

    I just took a look at the 4K Batman - did you really like the new transfer with the greenish color grading?

    Was yours in 4K? We tried to watch earlier tonight, and all four films are now showing as HD and not 4K / Dolby Vision. I contacted Apple support about the issue.
