Fanflix has some digital movies for only $2.99(slickdeals has the thread about them) and they can convert to 4K through certain services. I bought Lala land. It is my first digital purchase. I prefer a disc but Lala Land wasn't on sale for Black Friday and I haven't seen it on sale in 4K so I figured only $2.99 is worth it.  Question though, I know it converts to 4K in itunes but I own an android phone and only have itunes on my computer but I don't want to have to bring my computer with me everywhere when I want to watch it. I was thinking about just redeeming it to google play since it's linked to my youtube account and I can access that anywhere.  Will it covert to 4K automatically on youtube?  Lala land is an amazing movie so I hope I can watch it in 4K on youtube.

The 2001 Steebook at Best Buy is very, very limited at the moment; Check for a red UPC that's so you know it's not a recalled edition. That said, I'm shipping mine to my brother and buying the chipboard box version instead. The steelbook is disappointing, not just with the quality control issues (mine seemed OK but a lot of people are reporting theirs is not sealing correctly, or the book is disjointed on many shipments) and there's no extra booklet or photo's etc inside the package unlike the chipboard edition.

That sucks, both that it is unavailable and that the QC was bad. I really liked the way it looked, and forgot it was coming out.

It's not on Youtube. Play is it's own thing.

 

And maybe one day people will stop obsessing over steelbooks.

Oh. I was told and read that Google play hooks up with your youtube account as long as they are both under the same gmail address. What's my best option then? I'd like to watch it in 4K. My 4 options are iTunes, Google Play, VUDU and Fandango now. The last 2 are UV which I think means I can play them on other peoples accounts or they can play on mine maybe?? I am brand new to the digital movie stuff.

Those that bought the spiderman trilogy, I'd give them a watch soon. My spiderman 2 disk had playback issues. The exchange did not have any issues.

For me it was the fancy party scene and after that sporadic. Im thinking the disc was just scratched.

Thanks for posting this, I checked Spider-Man 2 in my set and it has a decent sized scratch and skips during the proposal at the party scene and then during random scenes more frequently throughout the remainder of the film.

You said it yourself, you redeemed through GP, so I would use it to watch. I've used the Vudu app as well and it works, can't testify to iTunes.

Always check thoroughly for scratches, especially if a disc is rattling around loose. Unlike DVDs, BDs are more resistant to scratches from this sort of thing, but damage does happen. Even if it isn't loose - probably occurred during the manufacturing or packaging process.

I didn't redeem it yet. I was curious where the best place to redeem it would be.
