I Just bought Blade Runner 2049 and it is 21 GB on my iPad Pro. Yeah HDR is way better than HD.

Why did they get rid of the download option? Why streaming only?

Where? You've never been able to download on an Apple TV. iTunes can still download, but you've not been able to download 4K on iTunes anyway.

Cause Apple is stupid with releasing low storage devices 32 and 64 GB, 4K movies should be around 80 GB and higher.

I still don't understand why Apple doesn't want to sell 1 or 2 TB of Apple TV's, That's why I don't buy it and prefer to watch movies (HDR's at least) on my iPad Pro.

Yeah downloaded archive is a good thing for any family.

Apple support's response to Murder on the Orient Express redeeming as HD only in MA: That title is HD only. We do not carry it in 4K.

Iíd say the reason is because thatís the deal theyíve come to with the involved studios to keep the price low and offer the free upgrades instead of charging a premium for 4K.

Its a size issue...

Vudu doesnít let you download in 4K and FandangoNow has very specific requirements to download eligible 4K titles.

1 to 2 TBs of flash memory would also cost a bit to produce too.

Kscape has downloading for 4k content that is the same bit-rate as the 4k disc and it's the only digital service that has this feature but the hardware required is very expensive.

Size has nothing to do with it. Have you noticed you can't watch these licensed 4k movies on your PC?
There is your clue.

Streaming + device gives them better DRM control.

This. When you stream, every few seconds, your device pings back the entitlement servers to verify both you and the devices are verified to play back the content.

Yes. I bought the UHD 4k BluRay combo on Vudu and iTunes shows it in my library as 4k.

I had an old copy of Dark Knight in HD, I’ve just redeemed the Dark Knight trilogy in flixster all the films have ported through to iTunes in 4k except DK, that has appeared as HD, so now I have two copies in HD. If I hide them and then I hide they both appear in my iTunes library on my PC as HD. On my iPad only one copy appears in HD.
I’ve contacted Apple and they say their engineers are aware of a problem, has anyone else experienced this?

You need to hide them before you port and Iím having the same issue with Batman Begins because I forgot to hide it; MA Support saying we donít do 4k is really getting on my proverbials
