Sorry, I should have been more accurate. I want the movie in UV as well. Going that route won't get me UV rights as well as MA. Bummer. Not sure why this one LEGO movie is an outlier.

Yep. You'll need to make that purchase in Vudu to get UHD UV rights

If I own a movie in HD or HDX on iTunes or VUDU how can I get it in UHD other than getting a redemption code? Once you have the movie in your library it does not let you repurchase?

Vudu does let you repurchase via the dropdown that they have. With iTunes you have to "Gift" the movie and send it to your own email and then redeem it that way.

I have to say, Sony support is awesome.

I got an email about the Sony pictures store closing which seemed to be writing on the wall for UV. I had six Sony titles that I had redeemed in UV through their store before Movies Anywhere was a thing. Vudu, didn't carry them in UHD so only HD rights ported to MA.

I was worried those rights would be held hostage in UV forever, so I asked if I could transfer the rights to MA. Sony happily gave me replacement codes for 4k redemption in MA as long as I was ok with them being removed from UV ( which I really didn't care about.)

Now I have those titles in Google Play and Amazon in UHD.

Was this the bluray code or the code in the 4K set?

Direct purchase in ITunes since the bundle was priced at something other than xx.99.

If you purchased the movie, you can gift it to yourself, then redeem the new code. If you originally got the movie through code, you can't gift it without paying a $5 fee.

This is the first I hear of any $5.00 fee for a gifted title already purchasing via a code?

I’ve never seen a “fee” outside of the cost of the actual code or title I’m gifting.

I haven't seen a fee, do you mean the $5 you are paying for the cost of the movie to "gift" it? (assuming it is a $4.99 movie on sale)?


I don't gift UHD movies to myself in iTunes since it doesn't port as UHD to Movies Anywhere. (i.e. if I have a movie in HD already, I can gift UHD to myself ONLY in iTunes, but it stays HD everywhere else).


If they (iTunes) would fix this problem, I would buy (and gift) more movies in iTunes. Instead I use UHD codes at Vudu/MA for 4k digital. Sony is dropping UV on 1/31/19, so I guess the only studio left doing UV rights will be Warner Brothers? That sucks for people who still do Vudu share. I do, so a lot of the movies I get nowadays don't share unless it is Sony/Warner Brothers.

I sent someone a revenant code and it redeemed HD. Apparently Theres a trick to gift it to yourself and redeem it again in 4k. But if it was redeemed as a code you can't gift it for free. The person sent me a screen shot and it was charging him to gift it, I did a Google search and confirmed it.

Wow! I’ve never seen that! The best way to get The Revenant in 4k would be to redeem that hd code at the www.foxredeem.com website and their will be an option to choose iTunes. There is no charge to redeem a digital code at the Fox redeem website.

Even if you have the revenant in hd in your iTunes, doing the above will get you 4k in your iTunes and as a transaction in your movies anywhere as 4k—- meaning the 4k digital will port to Vudu, fandango, etc.. 🙂

Where did they redeem it? If they redeemed it in ITunes then they should get the 4K version. If they redeemed it outside of ITunes then they would only get HD.

There are no free gifts (not sure why that keeps coming up). Gifting (in the upgrade method) means purchasing again to get the title “updated” so that it plays back in 4K. The only way to do this in ITunes is to “gift” the movie to yourself by purchasing it again (thus refreshing the title). This is handy if you got a title outside of ITunes or previously had SD rights (that got upgraded to HD).

I remember the above conversation. IIRC, the friend made the mistake of not redeeming in Itunes thereby only creating an HD code. Sounds like they had to repurchase (for 4.99 which is what the Revenant is often priced at) which was then gifted in order to upgrade to 4K. But ray0414 would have to confirm if this is what happened.

Yes, this is correct. You still have to pay for the gift so I'm not sure what is the problem here? The whole purpose of gifting to yourself would be to pay to get the upgrade from HD to UHD as there is no other way to do it on iTunes.

Sony Pictures store is closing down. Got an email a while back saying to make sure you have VUDU set up so all your movies transfer over.

I've contacted Sony about this and now they're asking me to show screenshot of the MA page indicating that this one is not available to watch in 4k. Also, Sony told me that MA is asking me to contact iTunes. What good is contacting iTunes going to do since I redeemed it at MA?

So to regift to yourself you have to use the email address associated with your iTunes account? Also I could not find the Vudu Drop down some had suggested to me? I’m trying to get the greatest showman which I redeemed through MA!

What device are you using? Yes, you send the gift to the iTunes email you normally use. Try using a browser on a PC or Mac to see the Vudu dropdown. Here is an image of it:

I'm sure that this has been dealt with before, mea culpa...

What happened to 2001: A Space Odyssey on iTunes? Is it or isn't it supposed to be in 4K...? I have it in 4K on Movies Anywhere, VUDU, and FandangoNOW, but iTunes is only showing it as HD.

This happens from time to time. Be patient and it usually comes back in a few days or weeks. Could be any number of things (studio pulled 4K, remastering, etc). This has happened before (most noticeably with the Die Hard series recently, they all came back.
