If a movie costs £20 there's no way I'd buy it, even this £15 deal is steep. That's pretty much £20 for 2 hours of content that you watch at home on your own set up. Blu Rays should be the same price as DVDs these days imo, maybe £1 more. The disc must cost less than £1 to make, so adding £10 to the DVD and 1080p price is just unfair.


It's not about the disc cost though. There have been arguments like this for years about games too. There is research, development, camera equipment etc. DVDs were the same initially. Blu rays can now be had for £1

Don't zoom usually do 2 for 30 on 4k? Not sure what's so special with this.
Blue Monday? Their 4k blu-rays have been 2 for £30 for weeks have they not? HMV also have the same deal with some different titles

This is all their 4K DVD'S. Perhaps it was only selected ones before, like HMV.

At least you can get two £28 ones for £30 with this deal.

I get that and agree, but some cinema tickets are now £20: appreciate the experience but not all can get there work, kids, etc.. fair dos if your a cinema buff a good price. Heat

It's not about the disc cost though. There have been arguments like this for years about games too. There is research, development, camera equipment etc. DVDs were the same initially. Blu rays can now be had for £1

I agree, but generally the £1 Blurays are awful. Like for like DVD vs Bluray of the same film, and you still pay a ridiculous mark up and they've been around for years

Yes you can keep them and share them amongst family without them taking the disc, scratching it up and giving it back to you in an unplayable condition.

Ive read a lot of the articles and the general consensus is that you can tell the difference. Not to mention a lack of Dolby Atmos (although coming in future update) it is convenient but the quality doesn’t match. What is worth something to someone is subjective. I value quality, I also collect Movies and having something in my hand means something.

They also done research and development and bought new equipment while selling DVDs too. Their R&D and costs relating the the screen resolution and filming equipment has probably stayed at the same percentage of their overall budget no than before blu rays were sold. Anyway Blu Rays have been sold for over 10 years now, many people had blu ray players 10 years ago since it was built into playstations back then, it's not new tech by any means, there's no reason why R&D costs should be an excuse. The point between the first DVD sold and the first Bluray sold is now much shorter than when the first blu ray was sold until now, so if DVDs were seen as normal back when blu rays came out then blu rays should definitely be standard now.

All Netflix and Amazons new shows AND movies seem to be available in 4K HDR now and it's only like £2/month extra but that also gives you double the simultaneous viewers which is where almost all of the extra £2 would go towards. So if they film and show it at pretty much the same cost then why can't anyone else?

You can't even buy DVD quality TVs anymore! HD is the NORM, so why is standard definition the normal price? 1080p should!

I get that my argument could be wrong and your reasons would be valid 5 years ago but now it's hard to justify the prices 12 years after I bought my first blu ray disc for not much more than they currently are today.

Also the £1 blu rays are normally old and bad and are reduced to clear prices. A good movie that came out this month will not cost £1. it would be £14+ for HD, and £20-30+ for 4K HDR(which like i said costs pretty much nothing more for Netflix/Amazon produced content)

Any deal is only a good deal if you want it. At least the £30 for two brings a £28 down to £15.

It was the same when blu ray first came out as well as dvd and if you think that's bad in the early days of VHS you could be paying upwards of £80 taking in inflation it would be well over £150 nowadays

Cheapskate
Personally I prefer my iTunes setup and my US account. Can get some real bargains and upgrade to 4k. For the price I pay for movies (including new ones) I’ll happily accept the trade off of no atmos.

Hmmm maybe. However, a side by side comparison showed such a minor difference and really only when both images were paused at the same point. £30 quid for Atomic Blonde and Allied on disc vs £5 I paid on my US iTunes account..think I prefer the trade off when saving that much money.
Personal preferences and difference in opinions is always good. It would be a boring World if we all thought the same.

I guess a case of agreeing to disagree is the best option. A good deal for one is not for another.

I don't find all the deals on here are for me, but will give them heat if I think they are good for someone.

I only comment on the ones for me, but never a negative for ones that aren't.

I wish you all, all the best and hope we all manage to get some good buys in 2018.
There’s always pros in buying physical media. I still buy discs for stuff I really like, such as Dunkirk and Dark Knight Trilogy.. but for throw away films I prefer going the cheaper route.

Of course people are entitled to their opinions but I think it’s better to give balanced and informative info rather than just dismiss digital media.

Here’s the link to the comparison for all those interested:

It is best to give balanced and informative info, and like you, I like to buy better movies and watch others on Sky, so that is my throw away movies. .

Dark knight is definitely worth having. I am thinking of buying Game of Thrones and the new Star Trek next. I will want to keep those, so might invest in a 4K player in the near future. I am just watching out for a good deal.

The quality simply isn’t same and noticeably superior on disc.perioid.
but I agree,discs are overpriced,should be £10 max.I personally won’t pay more than £10 for any movie.
but I’d pay for a disc specially a boxset on UHD or Blueray if I’m a fan and worth Re-watch.

Now is a good time to buy a 4k pkayer because 2018 models are announced and current 2017 models are being discounted.
you can’t go wrong with Panasonic UHD players.
I’ve just bought UB700 for £195.(used to be near twice this price when first arrived)
you can also get UB300 for £125.

all Panasonic models of 2017 are identical in picture quality and all have same image processor also same excellent up-scalling normal Bluerays to 4K quality.
the only difference between them is extra features and physical appearance and build quality.

Of course people are entitled to their opinions but I think it’s better to give balanced and informative info rather than just dismiss digital media. Here’s the link to the comparison for all those interested:[Video]



I watched the Video, thanks and we are just two very different minded people. It’s all in the details for me; he mentions some hairs and wrinkles cannot be seen or are smoother on Apple TV and also background filmgrain is removed or smoothed out on Apple TV, that’s a huge part of how a movie is captured by film. No comparison at all for me, Discs are the only format for the best quality but what I can say is you cannot decide from a video of a video for yourself; you can only take someone’s word on it. You do hear him also say he gets way less bit-rate with Apple TV which explains the loss of details but as you say may not be noticeable to a lot of people. Heck, my brother in-law still watches SD channels and they hurt my eyes and to think I used to watch Video tapes when I was younger lol. I am not that person and pick up on the details and admittedly to my detriment as I have walked out of so many bad cinema screenings and only watch IMAX now.

Then you have the digital vs physical convenience argument and also the ‘what if they stop the services and you lose all of the content’ or the newly; what if a newer device comes out and Apple slows down the old one

Apple TV does look like a very good 4K option but where possible I strive for the best.
Nooo. I’m too late for this offer

If you want the best to watch the highest quality the disc has to offer then the Oppo is the only way to go. If not then the Xbox One S is a sound all rounded media device that will also play your 4k discs.

Again, the quality is almost on par bar a few hair and wrinkles. I believe watching a moving image at normal sitting distances you would be hard pushed to notice any difference at all.

Film grain on the other hand is important if the director intended to use it. I don’t think streaming services are capable of reproducing that as the bandwidth needed is only available on disc. However, films like Transformers and Atomic Blonde are extremely clean movies so film grain for those is a non issue.

Like you, I don’t really want to pay more than a tenner on a movie as I’ve normally already seen it in the cinema so for repeat viewing try to save as much as possible. However, I will even pay rrp for stuff I really enjoyed.

Just to highlight a cost comparison, I got these 4k UHD movies on ITunes at the following prices:

Atomic Blonde £2.50
Allied £2.50
Intersteller £2
Logan £1.50
IT £4
Ghost in the Shell £1.50
Transformers The Last Knight £1
Baywatch £1.50
Assassins Creed £2
Die Hard £1
Prometheus £1

All those for just over £20. If all of those were in this offer it would cost me £150 but films like IT and Logan are £20-25.

If and when uhd discs take off to the level of Blu-ray prices I will buy more but right now the studios have priced out a lot of people and imo will end up killing off the format whilst still in its infancy.

no it wont, when blu ray first came out the prices were just as bad, the same for DVD and VHS was even worse with films being upwards of £80 in the early days. there are always collectors and those who prefer a physical product, we will always have a physical format because of these people and in a few years like blu ray and dvd the prices will drop, its the same when a new console comes out the games are always more expensive for first year of so

also i have nothing against digital and i can see its benefits, but ever new format its the same- its the end of physical media/ its too expensive.

When Blu-ray first came out digital media and streaming as it is today was not available. Blu-rays were around £15-20 but I think hmv doing the 5 for 30 and websites price matching really helped push sales.

Today the whole game has changed with digital media so easily available to everyone. People are much less likely to spend £25-30 per disc and this is evident by just going to a hmv store where the 4k isle is in a corner somewhere and no one even bothering to look at them, whilst the rest of the shop is heaving with customers.

Even a big supermarket like Asda doesn’t stock UHD discs so again the public won’t even really be seeing it let alone purchasing it to make it a mass market product. To be honest it’s a shame as I also prefer owning and collecting physical media.
