Default Bollywood HD movies on iTunes Store

It seems that Eros has decided not to release any BDs for old movies but to sell then in HD on iTunes store. I found a lot of Bollywood HD movies there. These include Eros movies Devdas, MunnaBhai, Duplicate, Tall, Amar Akbar Anthony, Dostana and many more. There are movies from Shamaroo, Yashraj and others. None of these have official blu rays. Each goes around $8.00. These are not true HD. But are better than their DVDs and that's what we ever going to get. I hope I'm wrong on this one but sadly it doesn't seem so. I added this info in Devdas forum too but then decided to start a new topic. I'll like to add screen shots and request others to do the same as and if they buy these movies from iTunes. Here are some screen shots:

I notice that your screens are 720p (technically 605 because of the wider aspect ratio). You should set your iTunes download resolution to 1080p and post more screenshots.

My iTunes is already set to 1080p. Everything I'm downloading is 1080p. Otherwise I wouldn't buy it. I have dvds for all these movies. I just checked the snapshot on my computer and it is 1912x806. It is when uploading the same shot, it gets reduced to 720p. I'll try to upload them again. I just tried to attach files and noticed that the limit for jpeg is 97.7kb. While the smallest shot for Devdas is 102. Is there a way to attach those shots? Meanwhile here are shots Duplicate:

Thanks for this thread RajKapoor

I was hoping to ask, as i had seen many movies on HD on itunes, even Gulaab Gang.

Can we get some technical information on the movies? What formats? Size of the files? Subtitles etc?

Also, please update the main movie listings on Bluray.com for those movies that are available on Itunes.

Thanks again

You are welcome! There are more than 350 hindi movies on iTunes. All the recent ones and many old once are in both HD and SD format. File sizes for HD (1080p) are from 5 to 8GB while for SD are about 1.5 to 3GB. HD movies have Dolby 5.1 audio and English subtitles. These are all m4v format. You want to have a of list of all the movies or just the HD ones. I guess you don't have access to iTunes store. They have trailers for almost all movies. My main concern is movies whose Blu-rays haven't released but are available on iTunes in HD. So is this the end of older movies on Blu-rays?

I don't use Google drive. I can set it up though. But I'm sure most people have access to iTunes store. They can watch trailers there. By the way, I took a snapshot from Kick movie's full MKV file and it came to 118KB. I think they should increase the file size limits.

Devdas screenshots look great! Really life like. Duplicate looks nice too. Could anyone load screenshots from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, or some movie of the sort? Thanks!

I would pay someone Blu Ray discs of Duplicate and Devdas 1080p versions. Basic Menus required.

I don't use any of the cloud storage services. Moreover I'm not putting any more shots unless someone asks me for them. I just wanted people to know that iTunes store has HD versions of many movies for which no Blu-rays have been released. If they like the quality, they can buy them from there for about $8.00 each.
I'll be buying most of the movies for which I don't have the Blu-rays. I have no hope anymore to see blu-rays for older movies . Today's generation has no interest in movies showing hero and heroine sitting and singing on a bicycle or a tonga etc. If a movie like Sholay properly digitized and converted to 3d flops miserably, what results can you expect for the less popular movies. Moreover most Indians don't like to spend money on Blu-rays or DVDs, which is changing a bit now but for only the new movies. Therefore I don't blame the companies for not coming out with BDs for old movies. I just want to enjoy with whatever is available. Thanks!

Watched "Duplicate" on StarGold HD recently and I guess that was better than iTunes version.
Few Blu-rays available FOR EXCHANGE, Contact if you are interested in these titles.

Just finished watching DEVDAS in 1080p

WOW

What a treat this was to see this grand movie in such high definition! I don't even think it looked that great when i first saw it!

What a shame it is that EROS won't release this on actual BLU RAY DISC
It would make for a great collectors item. The songs itself was worth the 10 bucks on iTunes!

I guess Eros has done a new transfer for Devdas. The songs are available on YouTube, uploaded by Erosnow, and they look much better than the Eros DVD. The colors look natural and good, unlike the Eros DVD, which looks horrid. Not only that, but the YouTube videos are from is clean source, unlike the Eros DVD (taken from a damaged source). I hope they are considering this title for a Blu-ray treatment.

Unfortunately, this isn't the case with Hum Dil De Chuke. The transfer on Eros now uploads is as horrid as their DVD transfer. But so many sources on this forum say that Eros was working on this movie for a Blu-ray treatment. No sign so far??

May be but there is possibility if all these done for online viewing (iTunes etc.)

I had a discussion about Blu-rays with my friend, who lives in Netherlands. He said he always watch movies online as they are 1080p too and much cheaper than purchasing physical media (Blu-ray).
The another reason for watching movies online could be high-speed internet there. He was using 6G that time.

Amazon US also provides services to watch movies online. I am not sure if companies like Eros would author all the movies for online purpose only (as many movies are already available on iTunes now).

Hi

I do have access to Itunes, just curious as to which movies are HD, so your first thread could list the movies with the links, and if you can, add to the list of available releases for the specific movies on the bluray.com database; just like what i did below for Devdas:

Oppo BD-103 | HP Envy M6 |
Polk Audio CSi A6 | Polk Audio Tsi 500's | Polk Audio Tsi 100's | Wharfedale Diamond 10 DFS Surrounds | JBL ES250PBK |

Take a look at this! Looks much better than the regular Eros DVD. Devdas is definitely a new transfer.

However, some things just had to look/sound worse.

Are we sure that EROS isn't lining these up for release on blu ray? Maybe iTunes just got them first?
