    I thought it was terrific. Lots of fun. Crazy. Twisted. With a great performance by Samantha Weaving (Hugo’s niece). Well worth the $9.99 I paid.

    And voila! iTunes upgraded Boyz in the Hood to 4K, it's still $4.99, so I hit the buy button and it imported into Movies Anywhere in 4K. Also of note I just nabbed The Hurt Locker in 4K for $4.99. :)

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood just showed up in my non-FandangoNOW MA providers. Vudu tells me it will be available to watch in three hours, while iTunes tells me it will be available to watch soon.

    Why is Movies Anywhere so important for that movie title while "The Hurt Locker" isn't a Movies Anywhere title, yet you bought it too?

    Yeah both upgraded free to 4K for me since I bought them previously. Wonderful perk.

    By the way I noticed It Happened One Night is available in 4K on vudu. On sale for $9.99 and it’s an MA title.

    It’s not that important. iTunes is my preferred provider, but just having the patience to wait a few days, for Boyz N The Hood to upgrade to 4K before purchase gave me the small perk of getting it in 4K everywhere. I buy tons of Paramount titles on iTunes and am perfectly happy not having MA distribution with them.

    Those Sony titles are 4K, but without any HDR. I bought a few of them on iTunes for $4.99 a couple of years ago so I'm going to pass on them on Vudu with the hope that one day they upgrade to 4K on iTunes. If not then so be it.

    I've trying to not getting worked up over Coronavirus but I'm kind of freaked out by the fact that "Contagion" is one of the top sellers and renters :eek:

    Warner is having a 2 for $9.99 sale on Oscar-winning films. It looks like you purchase the codes from Fanflix and then redeem at the retailer of your choice (Apple TV, Vudu, FandangoNow, etc.).

    Titles include The Blind Side, Pan's Labyrinth, The Departed, Gone With the Wind, Mad Max: Fury Road, 2001, etc. This was sent to me by Warner Bros, so it must be a legit sale.

    Are these just HD? Many of these titles are 4K and have been as low as $4.99.

    Looks like The Deer Hunter 4K just announced.
    It’s from Shout Factory. Do those get 4K upped on iTunes ?

    Doubtful. Shout Factory releases don’t include digital copies, and other 4K releases without digital copies (Stand By Me and Hannibal) never got 4K iTunes or UHD Vudu releases.

    Darling Lili and Teacher's Pet (1958) are both on sale at iTunes for $4.99. It's the first time each has been at that price point.
