Not an argument against UV, per say. Just an attempt to help a non-physical media fan better understand those of us who still like to own something more tangible.

My bet is that both of you would eventually embrace 4K via download if it is the only alternative.

lets just say that there's a lot of us who would stop paying for media if it ever goes to digital downloads only. no value in them. no resale, no being able to touch your media... knowing it's YOURS and will be yours even when companies lose licenses etc.

4K movies come with Ultraviolet. You turn on your PS4, go to your collection of purchased 4K movies and "cybergrab" one. No issues with physical storage or deterioration of media, slipcovers, etc. What's not to like?
Well Ray, for one thing, how the hell can I do an unboxing YouTube video of a 4K cybergrabed movie?

after being here for 8 years it's amusing to see the same arguments tread and re-tread over the decades. this same thing was said about DVD. sigh, so many people just looking for the end of physical media

The previously posted video from the same author showing a walkthrough of the 4K movie interface and his latest download of Looper seemed to work for him.

You buy it,download it to your Sony 4K Media Player (2 Tb with provision for external drives) It's yours. You have an urge to touch, fingerprints on the Media Player should take care of it.

don't trust non physical things + hard drives are MUCH MUCH more unstable than optical media is right now. wouldn't expect it to last more than 5 years

No way Ray, Im talking unboxing my 4K Blu-ray movie, not the hockey puck. How do you do a YouTube video of unboxing 'bits'.

great so spend more money on backups of large collections. also, if you have a hard drive failure you lose a TON of movies. one disc goes bad in a collection due to a printing failure you're out one or two movies. not half your collection.

For some of us, the only thing "good enough" is the latest and greatest.

If you have an opportunity see true 4K Ultra content on a demo. Just looking at the expanded color palette hooked me.

I assume you're talking about these: http://www.southridgeusa.com/schedule2013.php

I recall discussing it in your pre-retirement thread. I used to hike that area regularly. The races enhanced my hiking experience. I hiked the courses on weekdays and during racetime in March, I regularly slipped on gobbets of epidermis and crushed bike parts. I can see how that could take your mind off BD unboxingings.

Too funny. Over the years, probably some of mine too.

Maybe I could do, or find, an 'unboxing of bits' YouTube video for 4K movie downloads, something similar to graphically representing color in a three dimensional space -


^ but even so, it would still be a relative snoozer compared to a physical unboxing. Tayna apparently likes the monkey -

Funny, I always though Ms Tate was Scottish, but that's definitely a Scouse twang (albeit with a mid-Atlantic twist). I always watch her, ah, performances with the sound down, so that explains it...
