The birds is still showing hd for me. I ordered the universal 14 film set this summer. The other 3 that are on 4k have upgraded. They seemed to take a bit longer to do so however.

I just checked back to the future and none of mine have updated to 4k. I bought the bttf iTunes set this summer too.

Kicking myself for entering the code for BTTF3 just now in iTunes, as it likely won't upgrade across platforms in 4K. Parts 1 and 2 are showing 4K on both iTunes and now MA, but Part 3 shows HD. My codes came from the Complete Adventures set, and I had previously redeemed them in MA when I picked up the set on a Deal of the Day at Amazon about a year ago.

The birds and back to the future 1 and 2 are now all showing in 4K for me on iTunes.

I’m curious, did you just buy something else from iTunes? Because I‘ve noticed that a new purchase can also trigger your iTunes library to refresh itself to show the latest changes.

Last night I noticed that my iPhone 11X Pro Max in my movies had REQUIEM FOR A DREAM DIRECTORS CUT in HDR . ( 4K and Dolby vision and Dolby atmos.) Only on my phone. It is not in my film library at all on Apple TV or my iPad .( I owned it in HD)
Very interesting .....

I'm seeing those flags in the Apple TV app on both my Roku and Fire Stick, even on titles that I own that are HD. I think it's a bug, because when I play those titles, they play back in HD.

Does anyone else find the new Back to the Future master awfully drab looking in Dolby Vision? i didn't watch the whole thing, but did scan through it and it looks like someone turned the colour saturation down by 20 clicks.

I felt the color was muted too.

The 4k looks good not great. I haven’t seen the blu ray in years.

I didn't go through the entire list, but at least one movie seems to be incorrect. It lists "Stay Tuned" as 4K, but I don't see that at iTunes.

There's also a goof with the 2016 film Christine. It's not in 4K, but the 1983 John Carpenter movie with the same title is.

To Catch a Thief new master is now on iTunes. That means 4K will happen in the next day or two. Audio changed from 2.0 to 5.1 and titles are now yellow instead of that ghastly pink. Framing now matches the more heavily-cropped Paramount Presents Blu-ray.
