I only want the first one in 4K so this three movie set isn't for me. I'm glad I bought the first movie digitally on iTunes earlier this year for $4.99 so I can get that free 4K upgrade.

You did well with that.

This is a great movie, but I am not sure I am going to buy it in 4k day one. I may wait for a price drop.

I’m finally going to own BHC3 kn 4K!

...said no one ever. :rolling-smiley:

But truly, I’ll pick up the 3-pack on 4K. I love the first two. The third has some “it’s so bad it’s good” moments, so I’ll spin the disc at least once. Then probably never again.

It costs a lot if they misread the market and put out a product that doesn’t sell. It’s not just the price of taking the master and authoring it to a disc. Then you have to mass produce that disc, with all the licensing, manufacturing and distribution costs associated. Then it must be marketed. And unused stock must be accepted from retailers and stores or destroyed. It’s not just the cost of making a couple thousand discs but the entire infrastructure it takes to facilitate that process that can turn a modest profit potential into a loss with staggering speed.

Paramount’s MO in the past year or two has been to first issue new 4K masters on a digital platform. The new disc of It’s A Wonderful Life is based on the restoration they released digitally last year. I suspect that if the digital version sells well and indicates a demand for a physical media version, that they’ll consider releasing one down the line.

Hopefully it will be on sale again before release date. I only want the first film, too - - unless the price gets really cheap for the 3 film set.

The difference is that Paramount didn't first release the remastered "IAWL" on Blu-ray...

That’s my whole point. Paramount is experimenting with a bunch of approaches to see what works, but it seems clear that the bar is very high for something catalog to come out on 4K disc from them. While that’s frustrating, at least they are taking care of their assets and creating 4K masters. They just seem to be focused more on the digital space when it comes to releasing them.

My point is that they’re being very cautious about what they’ll put out on a 4K disc, because it’s a difficult market to make anything in. The comment that brought on my first response was one questioning how much it would cost to make a few discs, and I was trying to explain how it’s more than the per unit cost of raw materials but everything that goes into the entire distribution chain that can take a small profit and turn it into a loss. If they don’t think Star Trek II can sell enough 4K discs to make it worthwhile, I’m not sure that films from a less popular franchise have a better chance.

Star Trek II, Wonderful Life, War of the Worlds all had new 4K restorations that were first released in 4K via digital retailers. That only one of those has since come out on a physical disc leads me to believe that they don’t think the sales numbers are there for every title.

No 4K UHD disc release no sale from me EVER! How much does it cost to put these movies on Disc!
paramount is hard to figure out. This release should be available in UHd Blu Ray disc and not 4k digital only.

I am supporting the it’s a wonderful life UHd Blu Ray and did order it. I also ordered the Star Trek kelvin UHd Blu Ray set as well.

The thread title should be updated. There is not a UHd Blu Ray release of this set. Only 2k Blu ray and 4K digital.

Wow.

My apologies, guys!

I did not catch the disappointing particulars of this release when I posted this press release.

I have updated the thread title to indicate that the 4k release will be digital-only.

Along with Paramount doing 4k digital-only releases, I am beginning to really wonder about the viability of the 4k format on disc.

paramount is frustrating a lot of the market with their release decisions.

Me either. Paramount has an online form for product requests and it only mentioned Blu-ray, so I emailed the Paramount rep to ask why 4K wasn't listed.

Because it's digital only and I missed that! :mellow:

It'd be nice if the Blu-ray set came with a digital copy code, but I don't see that either. It really is one or the other with this release.
