It has happened. When I bought "How to Train Your Dragon: Hidden World", best buy sent me a digital code prior to the release of the physical disc. I haven't seen another title since then though that offered it.

They have, as I stated in my post they did it with Aquaman as well. They also did it with Hobbs and Shaw, so they can do it. I am just trying my best to not be a ******* about it because I know there is more to worry about than just this. But really not happy that both movies I bought because I was told would be released through email when available won't be for probably another 2 months.

I did the same! I bought "How to Train: Hidden World" before the release date as a preorder, and I immediately got a Movies Anywhere code emailed to me. I think the only title that Best Buy is doing that for currently is the "Dolittle" movie.

There is a little notification in the listing that will say "Free Movies Anywhere Code - a $19.99 value" or something like "Pre-order the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format of DoLittle and receive a code to watch the movie early via Movies Anywhere.

If you see that notification, then you get the code emailed to you for FREE, and you get the additional 4k code inside the 4k bluray set when you receive it on (or sometimes a couplle days before) release date!

Just was a heads up, it looks like gifting yourself a copy will now transfer 4K rights on ITunes (just tested myself and it worked). Not sure if this is a glitch or temporary, but good to see this change occur.

No glitch, check out Ashley's post (Gifted iTunes are redeeming/porting in 4K now) over on MeWe's Digital Movies group

For free? How? Unless I'm missing something, it wants to charge me full price.

No, not free. This is a way for titles that got imported from MA (usually) and have 4K copies, but your copy is stuck at “HD”. Previously you could “gift” (buy again on iTunes), but the titles would upgrade only on ITunes and transfer to MA in HD. Now, you can “gift” to yourself and the titles new version (4K) will transfer time MA in 4K instead of HD.

For instance, I used D2D for The Big Lebowski so it was in my library as HD even though it was available in 4K HDR. I gifted (bought again) it for 4.99 and now ITunes and MA have the 4K rights. Previously only ITunes would show the 4K copy.

It would be nice if prior gifted 4K UHD upgrades propagated. Just checked and still HD. This was a 4K self gifted purchase in iTunes a couple months ago (The Martian).

Oh boy I wonder how this is going to affect libraries for those non-MA titles going forward, and whether Vudu will be dropped at some point in favor of FandangoNow. I hope not since Vudu has the DV support.

FAQ

Basically “nothing will change” status quo for stuff like this. No one will be able to know the future outside of the company themselves. Could things change? Of course they could, I hope they don’t as FandangoNow doesn’t have a big presence across multiple platforms.

Hope this drives FandangoNow to up their game. They have been weak

I like their offerings and some of their sales, but app availability has left me wanting. It’s the one app for the AppleTV4K I wish was available for 4K HDR (any flavor).

Can you even get Fandango on the ATV? I don't think you can. Which is my main streaming device.

I don’t believe you can either. If I use it I use it on my TVs internal app.

Yeah it is the app I'm referring to. Everything plays in 4K SDR on my Android TV. No Dolby Vision support either.

I’m “lucky” my B7 allows 4K DV playback. Hopefully they start expanding their reach.

They would be wise to hire the Vudu devs, adopt and then later rebrand their platform. Then dump theirs.

Does anyone know if the expiration date on the Harry Potter 4K set is a hard date, or are the digital copies still redeemable? it was such a short time frame but retailers are obviously still selling them... But I haven't purchased b/c I don't want to spend that much to not get the digital copies too..

Best Buy offers this service too! They are currently doing it for Invisible Man. If you buy on the website, they email you a 4K MA code right away, and then you get an additional 4K UHD digital code inside the 4k blu ray set which will arrive on release date, or sometimes a day early!!!
