Speaking of 4K UltraHD...

Besides streaming (which AMZ won't let me do except in SD), my next DVD comes in three flavors

DVD (SD/480p)
Blu-Ray + digital copy (HD 1080p (?) +(?)
4K UHD + digital copy (2160p (?) +(?)

The last version needs a newer player and is probably also in HDR.

The prompts two questions from me:

Would the digital copy be 4K or SD, or what?

Is a digital copy downloadable, for me to keep forever, or do I just get access to stream it, and don't really get to own it, EULA notwithstanding.

In the distant pass, I seem to remember buying a standard DVD and downloading a 480p (same as the DVD) copy that was all mine, EULA notwithstanding.

But a lot's changed since then.

If the digital copy with the Blu-Ray option isn't 1080, then I may as well get the Mk 1 Mod 0, especially if I can't keep the copy.

Anybody have any hands on with recent included digital copies?

If the Digital copy is accessible thru iTunes, then you can DL the 1080 copy, 4K stream only.

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

This is a Paramount film, so it will be accessible through the Apple TV app.

Your 4K disc purchase will include a code for a 4K streaming copy.



It is what it is.

Ah, got it.

That isn't what I was hoping to hear, since my throughput isn't conductive to 4K streaming.

Thank you for that.

Sorry, I misunderstood the question — I thought you were looking to confirm you would be able to stream 4K if you purchased a 4K disc. If you are unable to display in 4K, you should be able to stream in 1080p.

But your answer told me what I needed to know.

I was hoping that the digital copy was an actual download, not streamed (which is downloaded, I know) that I could put on an external drive, and not depend on a host or ISP being available.

So it's the BD for me, and I'll ignore the digital copy.

You can download the digital copy that you own onto a device, but not onto a computer (similar to Netflix, HBOMax, Amazon Prime, etc.).

And if streaming, the digital copy will be the best that your network/device can handle, up to the resolution you paid for. So if you buy 4K, you can download 4K onto a device or stream it if your network can take the load, if not, the streaming will automatically be reduced to 1080 or 480.
