    Can iTunes 4K movies be downloaded or is it only available for streaming? When I look at the download size of the movies, it still only lists up to 1080p.

    We're all asking the same question. Maybe someone who'll buy the 4k TV Apple will shed some light on this.

    Ahh, a little bit of trial and error needed there. You need to look for the best DNS for you.

    Maraming site na ganyan actually. They sell codes. And you need a US iTunes account. Local debit cards also work on these sites.

    Just saw that Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in 4k! I'm wondering if other Disney and Marvel movies would also be re-released in 4k.

    Apple only allows streaming, not downloading, of upgraded 4K movies | Engadget

    From his review: "Nothing in the market that supports both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos" ~ LG OLED 2017 does :D

    @christopher - Apple 4K TV does not support YouTube 4K right? How about the LG OLED 2017? Can you play Google Movies in 4K in LG OLED?

    I honestly don't think 4K movies (Google Play Movies & TV) are available outside the US... I just checked the app and I can't find any information on the video quality...

    ^ only a matter of time.

    I worry our country’s internet providers won’t be able to provide the bandwidth.

    I don't think so. For now you can only get 4K movies at Netflix or Amazon Prime. Apple TV does not support Amazon Prime. You can watch 4k videos on Youtube by using your TV browser. The built in Youtube app on your TV also does not support 4k.

    Apple TV will support Amazon Prime before the end of the year.

    Yeah. But it's a pity they still don't support it. Amazon Prime has been available for subscription for months now. When Netflix became available for subscription in Singapore and the Philippines it immediately became available.

    What can we do? Apple and Amazon were having a long ass quarrel.
