Very disappointing, as the 900f is imax enhanced, and FN is only streaming service that offers IE. Nobody knows when IE UHD BDs are going to come out.
***Thanks for letting everyone on this thread know about Imax Enhanced on FandangoNow. Nice catch.
I'm not sure anything is available, right now, in the IE format yet. Also - please see the link below and I found this interesting, as well:
"Although Imax Enhanced is exclusive to FandangoNow users, it’s not the only high dynamic range (HDR) technology, which provides a sharper image through wider contrast levels and more elaborate colors, available to consumers. Films equipped with Dolby Vision, one of the more popular HDR technologies, are available through digital retailers and streaming services like iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, and Vudu. Dolby Vision is not available for FandangoNow members."
I find the last comment interesting. So IE enhanced content would be available but not Dolby Vision? Go figure. At any rate, it will be interesting to see what the Imax Enhanced content looks like.
Lastly, and this is a pet peeve of mine with all streaming sites - - when you play a trailer, they never provide the best quality content. Example: if there is a 4K/HDR movie available, I'd like to see a 4K/HDR trailer. That way - - I could tell what the picture quality looks like. Personally, I don't think it's very smart of any streaming company NOT to provide the best "Trailer" quality picture possible to entice people to buy - - but what do I know. I'm only looking at increasing sales. Maybe not a focus of these companies. Thx again - Rico.[/QUOTEl]
Big reason streaming is not my number 1 go to for video, and audio. All streaming services are cutting corners, or don't want to pay license fee for atmos, or vision. They user heavily compressed files, and limits the picture and sound quality. If I want a movie, will be UHD BD, and excited to see what future IE UHD BDs look like, when they ever get released. Already pre ordered Aquaman UHD, and most of the movie is in the imax format, so excited to play that on the 900F.
