For clarity... to play 4K HDR, you need to use the new 4K Apple TV with a compatible TV with 4K HDR support.

Alternatively, the following will downscale to 1080p with HDR:
- iPad Pro 10.5 or 12.9 (2017 version)
- iPhone 8 / 8 Plus
- iPhone X

Anything else will probably downscale to 1080p/720p without HDR. At least you'll be future-proofed for you eventual upgrade?

Yeah.. Think I'll stick with my actual Blu-rays that you know, I can play …Yeah.. Think I'll stick with my actual Blu-rays that you know, I can play on what I like without having to get locked into a ridiculously over priced Apple eco system.


That's perfectly respectable. I posted this purely because of price and convenience. The cheapest UHD blu-rays I can find start at around £20 and the cheapest UHD player I can find is the Xbox One S for £200.

Obviously, the physical media will offer higher quality than streaming, but if you want to get up and running quickly and for as little money as possible, this can be a good option. There's also the extra benefit of working on your iDevice without any extra effort. Ripping UHD blu-rays for portable players is not something everyone is willing to do.

Also a heads-up that @richmf also posted a deal for Prometheus (4K HDR) for £3.99

If you have the non 4K Apple TV box, it'll just play whatever you can push out. So likely HD by the sounds of your question.

Yeah.. Think I'll stick with my actual Blu-rays that you know, I can play on what I like without having to get locked into a ridiculously over priced Apple eco system.

Not bashing your post, more deals the better! It's the anti-consumer Apple policies that annoy me.

Anyone looking to get 4k Blu-rays keep an eye on avforums, the discount and releases threads are pretty useful.

I don't own an Apple device, so can these be downloaded to a PC, transferred to a USB drive & played on a telly (assuming a standard, smart LG TV can play these files)?

I don't think Apple or any of the big players (including Amazon, Google, Wuaki etc.) will let you download and play off a USB stick because of DRM copy protection. To play on PC you'll need to use the iTunes app. To play on your telly you'll need an Apple TV (or to HDMI from your laptop/mac).

If you want to avoid buying extra hardware, then your best option is to use the apps your TV comes with. In most cases, that will be Amazon Video or Google Play (or YouTube). However, right now, they have less 4K movies than Apple and they're more expensive
