4K Titles in Store But Not Available on Disc

Do to a limitation on the number of characters that one post can contain on the new forum, I have had to adjust the way I keep track of titles. The total list of titles has been removed from this post and added as an attachment. I could only add a plain text file as an attachment so it does not have to formatting that I would have liked. However, it is very readable and I have changed to organization so that entries are alphabetically arranged by Studio and then by title. This should make it much easier to find any given title.

Let me know if anyone has any problem with this.


Here are the updates from the last two months (November & December). As I said before, a large list of titles in this update - 23 in total.

No Release Date = Disc is planned to be available but no release date scheduled
No Info = No information on whether a disc is planned to be released

I will try to keep this updated to see if there is any kind of general pattern or pattern by Studio. So far very small sample size but it is an interesting development that I did not foresee.

I only looked at “major” studios and did not include old 4K releases from Sony. Sony had the very first 4K server adding their own 4K content in order to make it viable.

Oh my gosh, you're right! I've always had the MAGNIFICENT version I had on Kaleidescape, but always assumed there was a physical copy out there available. Just looked it up and nope! Pretty cool we get some exclusives! I'll start following this thread closely now.

I have added all of the Warner Bros. 4K HDR titles that are on the store but not on disc (of which there are quite a few). I am still not planning to add the old Sony titles that are only UHD but I will add any HDR titles that I find.

Thought you might want to add these older titles to list

20th Century Fox

Spy
Brooklyn
Victor Frankenstein
Poltergeist

Magnolia

2:22

Paramount

Monster Trucks

And it looks like upcoming titles will be...

Paddington 2 (Warner Bros)
All the Money in the World (Sony)
Phantom Thread (Universal)

There was no mention of 4K disc release in the press releases only Bluray...

I think this is only of the coolest features of Kaleidescape, getting 4k Movies in disc quality for titles everyone else can only get in either Blu-ray Disc or 4k streaming....

I always appreciate any input - so thanks for these. I will take a look and add in when I get a chance.

I agree that it’s been interesting seeing what is available in the store compared to on disc. I didn’t expect it to be so extensive when I first stared this list.

I found 4K versions of Brooklyn and Monster Trucks on disc. All the others I have added to the list except for the pre-orders. I will add once they are in the store.

Thanks again for the help!
