    If a person wants all seven movies on 4K/UHD disc then I would buy the box set because at its current pricing it's $21.13 per title.

    Edit: Just found the following information about the Nolan 4K/UHD releases:

    On Vudu, only Dunkirk has a 4K stream. I have to check iTunes.

    I am probably one of those people, since I have never seen any of the films.

    I don't understand the logic if that's true. What a questionable decision that further confuses the consumer base.

    Honestly, I can't get my head around the concept that someone who wants a 4K UHD disc has any interest in streaming a digital copy at all...

    Have you viewed a 4K/HDR stream? It isn't on par with the disc, but it's pretty damn good. Watching a disc is preferable, but if it's late at night and you just don't feel like getting off your ass and retrieving a disc from your film library, it's mighty convenient to just stream a movie.

    Honestly, no I haven't seen 4k on disc or stream yet. And I do understand that a stream can look quite nice, as I have watched TV shows through Netflix, Hulu, etc. The sticking point for me is that if you already have the superior disc product, why wouldn't you always go with that instead of using the stream. It really does seem like it would only come down to being lazy, like you say, which wouldn't make the non inclusion of the DC a deal breaker for me.

    I'm not intending any negativity on peoples decisions or anything like that, just my own thoughts. I was surprised to see people were upset, is all.

    Actually, it's not a deal breaker for me either, but each person's circumstances are different. Perhaps, they share their digital library to extended family members?

    Also, as somebody that has thousands of titles in their film library, at times, I use my streaming services like I channel surf on DirecTV. It might not be that I'm lazy, but just surveying some entertainment options.

    I must have hundreds of digital copies that I've never redeemed.

    It is in mine. 4K and Dolby Vision.

    Actually the whole Dark Knight trilogy is 4K/Dolby Vision

    As is also
    Interstellar
    Inception

    Exactly my feeling. I always choose the disc first. But my laziness sometimes interferes. Plus the 4K streams on my/our LG OLED looks awesome.

    No. What I meant is that there are now 4K versions available. As of today. So far only Interstellar upgraded to 4K since I redeemed that on iTunes.

    But I’m buying them all tomorrow so I’ll. Have all of them in 4K except The Prestige which isn’t 4K yet.

    So you already bought the Interstellar 4K disc and was able to redeem the 4K code?
