They are not shown as being available as Odemax isn't live yet. They probably will be available when they go live.
At least the Shot on Red titles are contenders/winners of a Red short film competition from last year.
I believe some of them are preloaded on the RedRay player together with some other content.
At least the RedRay player works on all displays including the VW1000, which is more than we can say about the Sony cookie box.
Just ignore Mark's "peanut operation" remarks about Odemax. It is something neither he or anybody else knows anything about what they will offer.
Mark is just pissed because they wont tell him "all their secrets" before they are ready to launch.
Which begs the question; Which content provider company reveal all their secrets to selected consumers before they are ready to announce their content?
Has Mark been bugging Sony (and bitching on every forum) about what Sony intend to release of 4K content on their online service outside of what they has preloaded on the server?
So why hasn't he been doing the same to Sony as he has been doing Odemax for the last six months?
And why the soft "silk gloves" remarks from Mark about the complete scramble Sony has made of the cookie box server release compare to the rants about RedRay and Odemax? Where is the comparable rage?
Afraid to step on Sony's toes but using his heels on Red and Odemax is fair game?
There wont be much 4K content on any service in the start, just like when BD and HD-DVD where launched, because there isn't much 4K content, and some of it will be up-converted including some of the ten movies preloaded on the Sony server.
Sony said some time ago they would have about hundred titles when their online service started.
What Odemax will have we (including Mark) wont know before they are active.
What we do know is that there are other 4K display manufacturers than Sony that want 4K content to show off their displays as much as Sony.
And when Sony has locked them out of their service, I will guess these other manufacturer will try to get content from some of the other Hollywood studios.
Where 4K content from the like of Warner, Universal and Fox etc. will show up we wont know before it happens.
My guess is that these other Hollywood studios don't want Sony Pictures to rule the 4K content alone.
Besides Sony and Odemax, there is both Netflix and HBO that have announced they are interested in providing 4K, and a "unknown" party which I have forgotten the name of, has also announced 4K service which I believe will be on the Roku server system.
We can "bitch and moan today" about 4K content solutions in our impatience, without knowing that maybe our questions will be answered "tomorrow". Edited by coolscan - 7/3/13 at 7:58am
