UGH!

AMZ, not The Princess Bride, which already resides on my drive, but not 4k.

AMZ will let me rent it, they'll even let me buy it.

They won't let me download it.

And if they did, they certainly won't let me play it until I buy a DHCP monitor.


It's a shame, as I love that movie and wouldn't mind having a 4K version.

I haven't bought a movie from iTunes in a long while, but I bought a couple of TV episodes.

They're DRMed of course, so I can't use VLC, must use iT.

Hate it, but it's not a deal breaker.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Neither. For $5 you have the privilege of streaming it in 4K. The $5 iTunes version includes featurettes not part of Amazon's world.

I think the streaming privilege was the reason for a lawsuit awhile back.

One's purchase doesn't buy AMZ Prime video, one only leases it.

AMZ says there's nothing misleading about the BUY button on their video site.

If you have the mobile app on a phone or tablet, you can download to watch later, when you might not have a data connection. MIGHT be a way around this. dunno smiley

This is the same with AppleTV.

Apparently 4K is streamed only, and only to AppleTV.

I read somewhere that studios contractually prohibit downloading 4K content and restrict it to streaming.

It seems that Apple will allow a download of 1080 and 720 content.

I'm 'downloading' The Princess Bride now, and it's a long, slow process for me.

iTunes (Mojave) says 1080 is a 4.54G file, and that's what appears to be downloading.

I'd really like to have it in 4K, sitting on a drive.

Oh, well.

There's the matter of the iT Extras.

I don't know if they'll be on the download or on the stream.

Somehow it is possible, because there are 4K torrents of Netflix, Prime and iTunes only content.

It's easy when you know how.

I guess, and if I knew, I'd have it in 4K instead of paying Apple $5.

But not only would one have to capture the stream somehow and record it, DRM would also have to be removed or be limited to Netflix, Prime and iTunes software.

Oh, and with Apple streaming or downloads, or downloaded streams, one's computer has to be one of five authorized computers, regardless of what version you rent or lease.
