Now, if only I had a damn UHD player
Still waiting for mine to ship...
I'm thinking of canceling and ordering my Chappie from Walmart _ at least they have a ship date of March 1st.
I also physically checked out my local BB and of course the guy had no idea what UHD even was.
He was there stocking the shelves with his trolley full of discs and there were no black cases.
Unbelievable.

I noticed all the movies are not Pre-Order at my local BBs. They were all available Sunday. Glad I got the 4 I wanted then.

I also cancelled my 2 FoxConnect orders since I picked up 4 of the 6 movies from those orders.

Grrrr ! Look at that...
I went into London Drugs today and when I asked the idiot if they plan on getting any UHD 4K Blu-ray's in, he answered "yes sir, we have lots of 4k Blu-rays"... SIGH...
I said, "no, those are up-converted Blu-rays, 2160p Blu-rays", I said...

And the classic blank look that appeared on the guys face...

How can these guys hold a job, if I was working in an electronics section, I would make it my business to stay on top of technology.

Nope. 1080p. But why bother? The disc version is still superior.

The catch is that none of the Fox titles for instance are available in UHD on platforms like VUDU (UV). The real test will be the Warner Bros. titles coming at month's end. Those movies ARE available in UHD on VUDU and I am crossing my fingers we will get UHD codes.

What do we think the odds are that Best Buy might add some additional discs tomorrow for purchase in stores? After all, there are at least the Fox stragglers (Life of Pi, X-Men, etc.) that could make it.

Just got back from a tour of Best Buys close to me to see if by chance they snuck out any more movies. Nope. Nada. Oh well, just one more week to go.

I think you may be on to something; at least that's what I keep telling myself as I wait for my pre-order as well! Once I discovered I wouldn't be able to pass HDR on to my TV without a firmware update on my AVR, I decided I might as well be patient and benefit from the great (coupon) price.

I recently saw some UHD options on a few VUDU titles (like Edge of Tomorrow), which got me hoping that they will be updating their TV apps to actually play the content. I gave up on M-Go, so I'm "all in" with UHD on Vudu.

Best buy is getting the warner and sony movies in on Thursday and can be sold that day.

However it's been pointed out that if your best buy refused sale last time, they may again refuse sale til sunday.

I hear ya.

Both sony and Warner movies will be at best buy thursday so I'll be going after work.

Very high hopes for chappie as it's a 2015 movie with a 4k DI. The other 3 you mentioned are iffy since they are older movies. They should look good but won't be as good as chappie IMO.

Equally excited for the warner brothers movies I'll be racing home to see how mad max looks!

my best buy is now completly empty of any UHD titles for the UHD section. They either pulled them or sold them all. I have my doubts they sold them all since they may have not gotten a lot of actual players since release. I know they probably had 5-9 of each title on sunday. This is the first time ive been an early adopter for home theater and the wait for movies is killing me.

I have several of these on order from Amazon Canada. It might take longer to get them, but at under $22 a title shipped, it's a much better deal.

The current exchange rate makes these titles so much cheaper than getting them from here in the US.

Would the discs from Canada work here? It should but has anyone confirmed?
