Nearly £1 per hour of film heat:)
Brilliantly made film. Never tire of watching it. Sounds like a good deal.
Best looking 4k I’ve ever seen.
Great movie. Heat

Until the disc comes out.


At 5x the price, you would hope so, but the differences will be negligible.

No it wont. And the audio difference will be substantial too.

Realise that when the disc comes out with DV and Atmos, then iTunes will get it too.

There are plenty of comparisons showing negligible differences in video quality, and that’s when pixel peeping.

When it comes to audio, the iTunes 640kbps Atmos soundtrack might not be lossless, but 640kbps is enough to achieve audio transparency.

Made up! I can finally purchase movies through the Apple TV app (instead of having to fire up iTunes on my Windows laptop).

Anyone know when this changed?

Couldn’t you have just purchased movies on the iTunes Movies app on the Apple TV?

Or are you talking about the Apple TV app on smart TVs?

The latter. I don't have an ATV box.
A bit more entertaining than citizen kane (what isn't) but like that you think i will never watch that again.

640 lol.

Plenty of difference - but you need the gear to show it.

So I assume you have no understanding of what audio transparency is.

Interesting, what special gear do you own that yields those differences?
People who think they can see the difference between iTunes 4K and a physical version are either sitting 1m away from their TV or have a 100”+ projector. Even then the difference is so hard to notice and your have to be actually looking for it.
I'm a big fan of Itunes movies for the picture quality, convenience, and price, - there's no way you can build such a collection of UHD discs. The PQ is very comparable to UHD disc.

But audio-wise streaming is very noticeably worse - esp if you have a amp/speaker system. Its not 640mbs of course but it is over 700Kbs for Itunes - but its lossy compressed DD+. Having Atmos helps a bit but thats only a little metadata - the bit-rate matters.

There's both a loss of substance and lower level atmosphere with a streaming audio track - that phrase 'audio transparancy' is just lifted from a website and is nonsense.

Nonsense you say?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transparency_(data_compression)

Not as much nonsense as using terms such as “loss of substance” and “lower level atmosphere”. That’s the sort of thing I’d expect to read in What Hi-Fi.

You say picture quality is very comparable to UHD disc, despite the huge bitrate shortfall, and I agree. The concept is the same for audio - give it a high enough bitrate and it will be comparable to lossless audio, despite the shortfall.

Atmos itself has nothing to with it, nor does having “a little metadata”, it’s the fact that all Atmos soundtracks on iTunes are DD+, so can go past the 640kbps limit of standard DD 5.1.

You simply don't understand the reflected & lightly dampened internal dimensions of the third harmonic that states the sibilance is detectability enhanced by the whole experience.

Well, if you want to expose vertical banding on your OLED, this is the film to watch. Painful on my C9 that's due to go back.

I’m sorry if your failure to grasp simple concepts leads you to that conclusion.
