i could care less about 4k pushed on to us after 3d and when they made the 4k tvs they removed the 3d as even a secondary feature.

dont forget needing the same as the 3d.

special 4k player and 4k tv in order to make it worth wild after most us upgraded to the 3d tv systems. Bah money grabbing.

ill stick with my 4 3d tvs thank you.

I have a 4k tv capable of 3D. I am about to buy a 4K blu ray player. I like the choice of 4K and blu ray. It's a little unfair 3D is because killed off. Ralph Breaks the Internet only available in 3D in Japan. That's harsh.

3D is a feature to provide a specific type of viewing experience. No economic reason for the industry to undermine consumers having this option. Is it just a case of only being satisfied with what is perceived as maximum profit? Why make ten million when cutting back expenses means making ten million and a little bit more?

I donít get Disney either. One of the reasons people were saying Disney wouldnít release 3D in the USA is that they didnít want to do 3 disc combos as it cost them more to produce. Instead of ditching the dvd they just didnít release the 3D version. Now with their 4K releases they arenít including the dvd. 3D fans would have been okay with that too Disney.
It's been said that the release of "Oz- The Great and Powerful" killed 3D for Disney because they put that out as a single, 3D-only disc- at the SAME price as their multi-disc sets! (I bought it later from an Ebay seller at a more reasonable price.) I answered a survey from them before 3D had even come onto the market where they asked if I'd prefer a single disc or a whole bunch of them (3D, 2D, DVD, digital copy) and I always answered as few discs as possible, yet they did the exact opposite at first.

The DVD market is bigger than the 3D and 4k market combined.
And that's absolutely pathetic. DVD was great when it was new, but it's simply obsolete now.

If 3D was dead we wouldn't have Aquaman 3D BR from Amazon.
Forget Amazon, order it from Wal-Mart or Best Buy. 3D is alive, and under water this time from DC comics. Amazon is also under water, playing with Saudi Arabia.

If 3D was dead we would have The Wizard of Oz (original) on 4K BR instead of in 3D BR.

If 3D was dead we would have Oz The Great and Powerful on 4K BR instead of in 3D BR.

If 3D was dead we wouldn't have this con version conversation.

Most of DVD's content offerings are not available on Blu-ray. There is nothing obsolete about exclusivity.

If Tiger Woods can make such a historic comeback, so can 3D!

Wonder how much they lost, Bill.

There was an encore broadcast so I dubbed the 17th hole on. Magnificent.

I once broke 90 on a pitch and putt!

The reason Disney kept the DVD in the pack is at the time there were a TON of minivans with DVD players in them and parents would buy Disney movies for the kids. Now parents don't care about those entertainment systems in the minivan because the kids are on their tablets and devices. The way I bring movies for my kids on long road trips is an Intel NUC with Plex on it and their Fire tablets. A decade makes a difference.

I would assume he downloads videos to the tablets via Plex before leaving the house.

It's just a laptop type of power. I have a 3rd party cigarette lighter power supply that works with it, but our new car has a AC power plug in the back so I could just plug it in that way too. It has an SSD drive inside so that there's no moving parts for the bumps that would hurt a spinning rust drive.

EDIT: I guess also the explain further, it's running its own wifi network for the tablets to connect to, but Amazon and others have code in there to warn you that this network doesn't have internet access. At one time I circumvented that, but then it broke again so now I just connect to the wifi and acknowledge that it doesn't have internet before handing it to the kids instead of playing cat and mouse with their internet detection schemes. I also have to connect everything once before leaving the house so that it grabs a fresh certificate for Plex otherwise it'll complain about needing to talk to the server even though I have a lifetime license for Plex.

If 3D was truly dead we wouldn't be able to import Avengers: Endgame on 3D Blu-ray.
It wouldn't even play in 3D on many 3D movie theaters, including IMAX.
3D/4K front projectors and 3D/4K Blu-ray players wouldn't even exist.

And instead of making 3D/4K TVs where 3D fans have a lot of 3D material, they now make and sell 8K TVs where nobody has 8K content to display from them, and play on 3D/8K Blu-ray players.
And before we see 8K Blu-ray discs the moon will have time to rotate around the sun a billion times.

Talk about an upside down galaxy we live in!

2018: 19 US releases
2019: 8 US releases so far

If it's not dead, it's certainly on life support.

US is only a small blip in the global picture. US is a fart in 3D. ...North America is a farce in 3D.

3D fans are universal global 3D fans, not North American 3D slaves.

North America is 4K and 8K, and streaming, and Netflix, and folding phones, and 5G, and fake news.
