Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga 4k UHD -- 27 DISC Boxed Set -- 3/31/2020
Time

blu-ray.com reviewers are not kind to this release. Frozen grain and some lost detail (though they still note its the best Star Wars has looked on home video to date–not saying much) due to excessive DNR.

Harmy's STAR WARS Despecialized Edition HD - V2.7 - MKV (Released)
Time

The blu-ray.com reviews of the 4K OT really hands the release its ass. Shame. Could’ve been a great source if they hadn’t tinkered so much.

I’m very interested to see how this plays out.
I can understand swapping out the old for the new on a streaming service. Your kinda just renting all that content. But switching out your purchased content seems sinister.

Yes, it sucks. But there’s nothing the consumer can do about it. Sure you pay for it, but the providers own the content and make the rules.

Long live physical media. From my cold, dead hands.

Yes, there is something the consumer can do about it. Take Vudu to arbitration or take them to small claims. I agree, long live physical media. That’s why I have every version of the films released on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray. That’s why I have the Ultra HD box set pre-ordered. But I’m enough of a completist that I also wanted every digital version as well, so I don’t like the 2015 digital version being taken away after I already bought it.

You can’t take them to small claims if they haven’t violated the terms, which they haven’t.

The terms just suck.

Digital copies are always a license to access the content. That’s it. You don’t own a digital copy. Ever.

The studios can replace the digital copy with an updated version, a censored version, or even revoke the license altogether at any time, without refunding you a dime, and they’re well within their legal rights to do all of those things.

Is it right? Nope. But that’s how it is.

Until dual power structures are erected, anyway.

Yes, in which case we won’t have to worry about these things because there will be no more big budget blockbusters.
