If you purchase Onward in 4K be aware that most providers do not currently have the 4K master available to stream.



Amazon: Unable to stream at all from 4K UHD listing

FandangoNow: 4K HDR

Google Play: HD Only

iTunes: HD only (as expected)

Microsoft Movies & TV: HD only

Movies Anywhere: HD only

Vudu: 4K Dolby Vision

Comcast does not have it available in their library yet either.

I can verify that Prime did not stream at all.

Vudu only streams in HDX.

The listing for the movie in my Vudu app clearly says “UHD will have delayed availability and will appear in your collection upon release.” You can stream in HDX in the meantime (I purchased mine at FandangoNow and it ported over to Vudu as UHD, with HDX viewing available viewing now).

Vudu is be keeping the UHD from being streamed. They may also be keeping UHD quality from streaming so as not to tax their servers and the internet during the lockdown as more people will be using the internet more.

Also, some have said that FNow does stream in 4K. I haven’t been able to confirm though.

It is not only Vudu, nearly everyone but FandangoNow is streaming HD currently. Somehow FandangoNow got a 4K master and is streaming 4K HDR now.

If they really wanted to do this they wouldn’t choose just one movie and they would announce it. Their servers should be able to handle it also.

I really hope they eventually add as a special feature/extra "Playdate with Destiny" (The Simpsons short that ran before the film in theaters).

Clearing things up:

FandangoNow seems to have Onward in 4K HDR, every other digital provider is HD only for now.

Europe only will have bandwidth throttling for many streaming providers.

So...

Fandango Now has 4K HDR, but what device do I have to use to get surround sound?

On my Roku the only option is stereo.

XBox One/S/X supports surround sound but no 4K playback for any 4K title.

My Android TV supports surround sound only when set to DD 5.1+ output and via ARC.
