Another Universal title has not received the 4K bump....THE BIRDS. I did write Universal regarding SPARTACUS. I received the message that they were "looking into it"
The 4K issue with "The Birds" is different than "Spartacus". The latter isn't available anywhere in 4K, while "The Birds" is in 4K on Vudu and Fandango, but not on iTunes. IMO that suggests the issue with "The Birds" is with iTunes and not necessarily with Universal.

Interesting. The machinations of the streaming services is very opaque

my copy of the goonies has updated to 4k.

has The Birds updated to 4k for anyone yet?
The Birds is not available in 4K at iTunes yet. Someone will post here as soon as it happens. Remember how late iTunes was with Airplane?

Trading Places, The Golden Child, and Coming to America should be getting upgraded when the new discs come out.

I swear to god, iTunes can’t get a release date right if it killed them. Back to the Future Part II is currently in 4K Dolby Vision and Atmos on my Apple TV unit, and yes I am playing it back in 4K as I write this. They may pull it down since it’s not due until October 20th, but holy crap iTunes, get your act together!

Great news about THE BIRDS. Universal has yet to respond to me about the lack of streaming SPARTACUS 4K after sending me an email stating "they were looking into it".
