Pretty sure there was a change in distributor so probably not.
Whats listed as the studio under your library copy compared to whatís listed in the store?

The version in iTunes is listed as Compass. My older HD does not show what studio it is on my phone. Iíll have to check my Apple TV later tonight. Iím not going to hold my breath though.

Should still show via phone using the iTunes Store app under Purchased, if not already along the bottom then youíll find it under More.

The old listing for Halloween was from Trancas International Films Inc. They also relisted Halloween 4 and 5, so if those go 4K, the older listings won't upgrade either.

Trancas and Compass are the same company so they just trying to get more money out of us. Contact Apple and tell them about your issue so they’ll at least give you some rental credits. Maybe after more this type reports they will finally fix problem with their listings (Scream, Scream 2, Pulp Fiction etc.)

Scream, Scream 2, Pulp Fiction etc there’s nothing to fix as the entire Miramax library distribution license changed from Lionsgate to Paramount Pictures.
All 4K upgrades have been done by Paramount, any purchases made prior to the Paramount takeover will not be upgraded and remain under license with Lionsgate.

Edit: According to Wikipedia Halloween was also previously under license with Lionsgate which since changed to Shout Factory for the latest 4K Release.

I’m pretty sure that Apple is in power to force any distributor to add 4K versions to previous HD listings. Especially they claimed to do so.

Funny that when I search Halloween in AppleTV app I see Compass as distributor and the button next to the movie icon is resume not buy (I own only former version, it plays in HD).

No they have no power at all to force a distributor to give a 4K upgrade to someone who holds a purchase license with another distributor entirely.
They don’t even have the power to force a distributor to give a 4K upgrade on a title that’s been re-listed by that very same distributor.

You see resume rather than buy because that’s how the ATV app works now as it combines both library and store listings together, has done so in over a year now.
However if you scroll down to How To Watch you should also see amongst the available options for ATV, one will say purchased and the other will have the option to buy.

I would argue that they do, they just don't bother to exercise it. Relisting clearly violates the spirit of Apple's upgrade policy, but Apple chooses to only enforce the letter of the law.

While I agree that relisting by the same studio violates the spirit of Appleís upgrade policy, Iím not inclined to believe that changes of ownership applies.

Especially in the case of ďHalloweenĒ, which is an Independent film, and not a studio that Apple announced would offer free upgrades.

Yeah, same studio relists are BS. But I can see why the upgrade policy wouldn’t apply to things like Miramax where it physically changed studios. When you bought the movie you have the rights for it under the original studio. Apple isn’t going to play a second studio for rights to the film for you.

Here in AU Iíve been doubly gypped.

* Mad Max 2-4 are distributed by Warner Bros and are 4K. But the original is Kennedy Miller and only HD.

* Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Beyond are distributed by Paramount Pictures and are 4K. But Star Trek Into Darkness is Paramount Pictures ďCorporationĒ and only HD.

I was very surprised to see that House Of The Dragon is only showing as HD in the store. The show was broadcast in 4K DV on HBO max. I thought for sure it would be 4K DV DA. I decided to order the 4K Disc set for season 1 but this reminds me of the old days where I'd watch a show in HD on satellite and it was only available for sale on DVD going backwards. I'm not sure if Itunes offers any show in 4K but this would have been a good start.

No TV shows are currently available for purchase in 4K.
Whether that’s an Apple decision or a TV Studio decision I don’t think anyone actually knows.

Okay, only now realised there's been no physical release of MM in AU either, so makes more sense. STID on the other hand...

Could be coincidence, but a week after I emailed Kennedy Miller MM has gone 4K in AU!

Maybe I should try Paramount next.
