It’s about time!
I have enough trouble with buffering and annoying sound problems let alone streaming 4 K. I tried Rakuten and it was perfect. Why can't Amazon match them?
Anyone have a link to the specific titles included in this deal? The get deal link just shows everything (im only interested in the rk stuff).
I'm going via my TV which lists them as UHD...not sure how to otherwise

Really? I was sure you could buy them from the main site like you can rent movies and buy kindle book. I know you need the app to watch. Really stupid system if that is the case as it rules out anyone who doesn't have access to their device at the time or wants to build a collection in advance of getting a compatible tv...

Yep sadly that is the case... I asked Amazon UK earlier, as my friend sent me a message about the sale. That was why I posted the guide in the post on how to access it, as it is the only way to buy and stream.
4k great ! ... just don’t bother with the rubbish ghostbusters re hash....
Ach, I was going to rent T2 to use up some of my no rush delivery stash and now it's only available to buy lol, typical!

Any 4k HDR titles available
I've had a 4K Android TV for over a year now. Still no 4K content on the Google Play Store. Google are amazing in certain areas and appalling in others.
I won't buy from Amazon since they don't support Casting and I have four other TV's in the house that can be casted to.
Men in Black 2 & 3 are £3.99 too
Edited by: "bigst" 26th Sep 2017
Does anyone else have sync issues with Amazon 4k?
I've tried different settings.
No problems when it's non 4k.
Works on Panasonic Smart TVs from 2016 too. At least the Prime 4K HDR stuff does anyway.

You could pay me £3.99 to watch Ghostbusters: Answer the call in 4K, and I would still rather walk along the M25 this morning.
Some nice deals. It's about time Amazon updated their website so we can filter UHD films, they still only list SD and HD. The Google search from @ragzed works a treat in the meantime.

Blame Google for that. For all there don’t be evil mantra they can be real dicks. To add casting to a device requires you to include Play Services on the device (outside of iOS who they decided to treat Apple as a special case) which then means including every single part of play services including all the apps which on many devices just ends up being bloatware (who needs chrome and google docs on a streaming box?) so if you are trying to make a quick and lean device you are screwed, it’s a major problem with Android phones which sees them run out of both space and becoming sluggish quicker than iOS because there are so many apps and protocols that exist for wide compatibility but which aren’t much use on the phone. There is also the payment problem where any inapp payment would have to go via Google meaning 30% of any transaction goes to Google, on digital items that wipes out Amazons profit margin

But then it gets worse, they will only licence play service you have to be running core android not a custom fork, any customisation has to be done via skinning which in itself is an inefficient system that cause slow down and is the main cause of most android devices issues. So Amazon couldn’t even licence it even if they were willing to take those hits because they use a fork

Now obviously they could add it to iOS Amazon apps (but not Android) but that causes confusion for their own devices and as Amazon really market their devices to the people who don’t know much about tech but may take a punt on it because they trust Amazon they just can’t afford that confusion.

Google need to get over themselves, break casting out of play services so the likes of Amazon can use it on their devices and maybe make it viable for casting to start being added to apps on other mobile platforms and windows/macOS apps without hacks

You're talking about something completely different. My point is I won't buy from Amazon or iTunes because both require you to invest in their ecosystem to use their services.
I can't play back content from iTunes on my cast enabled devices or any other devices other than from the bloated iTunes on my PC from Apple. For Amazon I would need to replace my Chromecasts with Fire Sticks or like Apple watch it from a browser. At least with the Play Store purchases I can play movies on my PC, iOS and Android devices.
Amazon Prime Video recently moved to the Play Store so you never no Chromecast support might be added one day.

The above list is just a sample of the sale. Most newer releases are are £7.49 to £13.99.
sadly I just cant see any worth my money
It is a good deal and about time but it is actually for a small selection of amazon customers. For this deal it is not just the price of the TV but also
- Amazon Prime subscriptions
- Having a correct UHD/4k television (like HD on SD screens you will notice no real improvement) +receiving equipment
- Having a proper high speed fibre broadband connection, over 50 meg

After all of this the quality of the UHD picture is fractionally better than HD, it is a good deal for those that have the above but it is not worth buying a new television to get the deal

I've got all the above and have only really watched YouTube videos in proper 4k so far. It's a pity that the only film on the list that really appeals is the original Ghostbusters and I'm not sure that benefits from a 4k remaster.
The TV upscales standard Blu-ray nicely though
I have the Fire TV box so thought these would show up on that, but I couldn't find them (not a fan of the boxs interface tbh) though it is possible I'm not looking in the right place as I generally just use it to watch Netflix/Youtube and actually watch surprisingly little Amazon stuff on it.

I also only have it on a 1080P set atm as I already have plenty of other sources connected to my 4K set, but I wouldn't have thought that would matter since the box itself is still 4K capable?

Does anyone with the Fire TV box know if this offer displays from the home screen? or do you have to go into a specific application?

These prices are actually pretty good for 4K films to own (assuming they aren't just rentals?) just wish Amazon would make it easier to actually buy them, it's like they don't want my money.....

I watched Ghostbusters in 4K from the 1-3 4K Boxset, one of the first 4K films I got and while I'll always have a soft spot for the first film, I didn't really feel much benefit from 4K and the extra clarity just seemed to expose excessive film grain in some/many scenes. Though there will always be exceptions IME modern films seem to benefit more from 4K.....

You will need to have the box settings enabled to 4K streaming to access the offers off the device. I do agree with you Amazon don't make it easy...

I bought Lawrence of Arabia with this deal for a £1 using an Amazon Prime credit here.

The film looks absolutely stunning on our new Hisense 49" 4K HDR TV (£454 from Hughes). If you can, connect your UHD TV with an Ethernet cable or 5Ghz Wi-Fi. I have PlusNet Broadband 55/18 and the quality is perfect.
