Was anybody able to redeem The 5th Wave 4k UV to get 4k UHD? I can't seem to redeem it on Sony UV website.

I wrote to Fox support to ask them if the UHD rights would be attached to the code for their 4k titles and they said this:

Dear Valued Customer ,

Thank you for your email and interest in Fox products. We sincerely apologize for the confusion as . The digital transfer that is provided with our Ultra High Definition 4K digital copies will be in standard HD as indicated on the digital copy insert.

Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.


Thank you,
Fox Customer Care

UPDATE: I probably won't be able to update this list much longer, so please follow this spreadsheet, which seems to be updated as new titles come out: http://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/...Htmh4/htmlview

-------------------------------------

Codes from 4K Blu-Ray discs should redeem as follow:

Warner Bros:
Flixster: Redeems UHD
VUDU: Redeems UHD (only if available in their catalog)

Lionsgate:
Flixster: Does NOT redeem UHD for new releases such as Deepwater Horizon or Hacksaw Ridge. Old titles might still redeem UHD.
Redeems HD elsewhere

Universal:
Flixster: Redeems UHD
VUDU: Redeems UHD
Universal Studios: Redeems UHD

Sony:
Sony Pictures Store: Redeems UHD
Redeems HD elsewhere

Fox:
Redeems HD everywhere

Paramount:
Should redeem UHD on VUDU for newer releases.
Older releases such as both Star Trek me deem ovies redeem HD everywhere.

*******************
*** Known Issues ***
*******************

Batman v Superman: Redeems UHD only on Flixster and ports to VUDU in UHD.
John Wick: Might throw an error when redeeming on Flixster, but it should still port to myUV as UHD.
Labyrinth: The code from the 4K Steelbook redeeems only in HD.

Do Sony titles redeem UHD on Flixster? Did anyone try it yet?

The 5th Wave finally redeemed on Sony Pictures! I redeemed on Flixster last week and it did not redeem in UHD (just HD).. after emailing Sony they sent me a new code for UHD that wasn't redeeming at first, but redeemed today. Yay!

Paramount hasn't had any 4K releases yet. Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness will be their first and those don't come out until June 14.

Is there a list of 4K titles that redeem UHD? It also seems like they might have to be redeemed in a specific platform for some?

So if Lionsgate redeems UHD with flixster, then I am assuming it goes into the uv locker at UHD quality, right? Assuming that is also correct, is it likely that it would transfer to vudu in the higher quality if/when they enable uhd for the associated titles? Or does it stay at the initial quality l(HDX) on vudu even if they enable UHD for it at some future point?

That's what I'm hoping for, at least. Which is why I've been redeeming Lionsgate codes at Flixster and Sony's at Sony.

I think Fox may be boycotting UV on certain services... They pulled all uv redemption options from Kaleidescape, when I called them (kscape) they said Fox told them that they won't offer redemptions on any newer movies on any new services. Hopefully they will start offering UHD redemptions on Flixster or Vudu.

That info can be found quite easily via IMDb, Amazon or right here on Blu-ray dot com's database.

For example: You choose a title, go to Amazon, click on the artwork for views of the packaging. Boom, you'll see it in the pic.

Even simpler: Choose a title, go to this site and it will have the studio underneath the title on the database.

Hope that helps. That's much easier than asking a person on here to gather every title that is available on UHD BD and list them by studio in this thread.

Doubt it. Not to mention, iTunes 1080p is usually <= 5Mbps which already looks bad. How do they expect to do UHD at low bitrate and have it look decent? A lot of times 720p has less artifacts.

Doubt what? Who were you responding to? The original post? If so, then you're wrong, because it's already been proven that several UHD Blu-rays have included UHD UV copies.

To me, streaming in UHD looks almost like Blu-ray. Not at all times, but in several instances. Granted, regular Blu-ray is 1080p, not 2160p, so I am fully admitting that Digital UHD is not on the level of UHD Blu-ray. Who would want to make that claim? Also, I've never seen an Ultra HD Blu-ray in action. So, really, what do I know? Heh

I just got the 4K release of Now You See Me (Lionsgate) in the mail. I punched the code in on myuv.com and it told me it was HD. Does this happen with other Lionsgate titles that have been proven to redeem in UHD on Flixster? I won't be using the code myself so I just need to know that it will indeed redeem in UHD on Flixster regardless of what the redemption quality says on myuv.com.

myuv.com is no longer accurate and can not be relied upon to determine a digital movie's video quality.

Fair enough. I'm still unsure that it will redeem in UHD though since the code comes up as the extended edition. The version on the 4K disc is the theatrical.
