That's why I will most likely wait and watch until enough movies are on 4K Blu Ray to make it worth while. I'm guessing that will be 2020. That should give me enough time to replace all my HD DVD's that I might want to re-watch in the future with either Blu Rays or 4K versions ( if available and if they are actually a quality improvement - I'm guessing many older films won't look any better than now ), so I can get rid of my HD DVD player, from the last format war !

Other than big/popular sellers, I think A LOT of Blu catalogs will never see 4K.

True, even when some of the big hitter catalog titles received 4k re-mastering. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is the latest from Sony. It took forever to be on Blu-ray... I doubt they would release it at the start of 4k Blu-ray. They don't even want to produce discs anymore. Sony always dumps products they helped create. They're a crazy company.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
