May have to do with the thread title:Cue the chorus of: "But it's not on disc."
Thanks for the reminder, this is a very good price for people who want their 4k fix and after all we are still waiting for a release date for the UHD Blu-ray and it could be another two years until it gets released.For anyone interested, LoA in 4K is available on iTunes today for $4.99, along with The Bridge on the River Kwai.
It's not on disc, but come on, it's FIVE BUCKS, and it looks pretty darned nice. IMO definitely worth a purchase if you're a fan of this film, as I'd assume most people reading this thread are.May have to do with the thread title:
While we wait for A few words about...™ Lawrence of Arabia -- in 4k/UHD Blu-ray
I had a look in the streaming forum but it seems there was no big and interesting thread there about Lawrence in 4k itunes or Lawrence in 4k Amazon. Maybe somebody wants to add to the existing thread that has amassed a total of two posts and move the discussion about the 4k low bitrate streaming version without HD sound over there
I'm definitely fine with the price - as you say it is only five bucks and we do not even know when the UHD disc gets released. Still I can understand people who may only be interested in a disc version for whatever reason and I found it funny to find almost no posts about the streaming version on the streaming forumIt's not on disc, but come on, it's FIVE BUCKS, and it looks pretty darned nice.

Indeed. There are many factors which can have an effect on the quality of streaming video that have nothing to do with the quality of the source data.Streaming versions can be extremely difficult to review, as at least partial quality comes down to speed of one’s personal data throughput.
This is a bit better I'd say:YouTube is somewhere around Wikipedia on the scale of trustworthy sources that won't pass muster on even a school paper, so I'd take that "news" with a couple hundred grains of salt.
Yes, exactly why I do not use streaming for anything I am serious about. And I have a very good Internet connection. If it is hard for a professional reviewer to review, it is hard for me to watch.Streaming versions can be extremely difficult to review, as at least partial quality comes down to speed of one’s personal data throughput.
