    Into the Spiderverse is one of the best looking and sounding streams.

    I still feel disc is the best quality so for certain titles that I want to own outright and have in my physical library the disc is still my priority. How ever there are still many titles I am going to get for the Apple TV.

    I will look into getting that on iTunes but not till next month as my entertainment budget has been wiped out for this month.

    I think I will look into picking up Twilight Zone on iTunes

    Yeh I just bought Backdraft and Cliffhanger on 4K.
    One has DTS X
    The other has Atmos.

    The digital version don’t.

    I used a $10 BB earned credit and $10 from Shopkick so only paid about $22 total.

    About the same as what it would have been on iTunes I think.

    So do you guys with Apple TV buy almost exclusively through iTunes (except Disney)? Will a 4K title purchased from Vudu carry over to iTunes, if it's a Movies Anywhere title? I guess the reason I'm asking is because I didn't know if it was worth monitoring the 4K prices on Vudu?

    I buy from whoever has the best price, including for Disney. I shop iTunes, Vudu, Amazon, and FandangoNow.

    As long as it's MA, it will port to iTunes. You might as well take advantage of the open marketplace.

    I do.

    And 4K vudu titles port over to iTunes in 4K if available there.

    I’ve purchased a few vudu 4K titles for as little as $4.99.

    Tino, how do you get a Vudu purchase to show up in iTunes/MA?

    If it’s an MA title it will port over automatically.

    An advantage that vudu has over iTunes is that when you want to purchase a title from vudu, it tells you if it’s an MA title.

    Thanks. Guess I screwed up. I just bought Source Code on Vudu for $7, but it's listed as an UltraViolet title and is not showing up in MA or iTunes. God, there are things about this digital copy crap that I really detest!

    Almost everything I had on Vudu and Movies Anywhere where on iTunes. Your most likely better off buying from iTunes. I am now only buying from iTunes. But there is nothing that says I will not buy from Vudu.
