Any chance they will update the Babylon 5 seasons to 4K? Hbo max and amazon prime now have the new 4K remastered versions. Kscape versions are in SD.

I believe these are HD remasters and not 4K. iTunes also offers them in HD. I would love to see what K could do with them.

Nice that’s the updated Zack Synder Rerelease with knew color grade and IMAX scenes...

I don’t think it is although I see they show him as the director. But the Zack Snyder release is 4 hours yet this version is 3. Or perhaps the HBO Max one is an extended release of this one?

I stand corrected. That is what I though you were referring to.

That looks like a data issue. I'll let the team know.

Whew, I was going to say. Let's please not get into price differences between 4K releases. Having different version of 4K is already confusing enough for your average consumer.

The fact that EST still has different quality levels today is crazy. Just another thing pushing people to streaming services. They just find what they want and hit play. It's 2021! The fact that EST retailers like Vudu, etc. (and even K) still sell releases in SD, HD, and UHD is ridiculous. Just pay one price and you should get it in the highest quality available. If the movie is only available in HD when you purchase it, you should get to watch it in UHD when it's available. With digital, people should be buying a movie, not the quality level.

While I think many agree @billygreen23, the problem from a pricing standpoint is that it may be 2021, but not all K owners are using Strato's, many still have only Premiere systems, and a certain number of them are SD (DVD) only systems, so these price differences are there to support those owners as well.

If we were DVD (SD) only owners, we certainly wouldn't want to pay the premium for UHD/HDR (or even HD) if we didn't have the equipment to support playback.
