  • iTunes video competitor Vudu coming to app for fourth-gen Apple TV

    supadav03 said:
    I reached out to VUDU and they said there was no truth to this rumor. Wasn't one of those "we don't comment", "were looking into it", "nothing to announce at this time" type responses. It was a straight up "no, it's 100% untrue" response 

    Call again, and a different customer service rep will tell you something different.  On this front, the CSR's can't be trusted, because they don't really know.  

    The source of this new information, "Jake" is an actual VUDU engineer, who has been on the VUDU forum, offering support since 2007, with 800+ posts.  

    He didn't say definitively that it's coming out, and didn't give a date (saying he doesn't know) but he did confirm it's being worked on, and I believe him.  Whether or not it will actually see release anytime soon, is another question entirely.

  • Amazon slashes 4K video prices in apparent reaction to iTunes 4K deals

    TOO. LATE.

    Just be warned: there are reports that some 4k movies bought on iTunes have lost the 4k feature and are only 1080p now.

    Someone bought Oblivion for $5 on iTunes with 4k.  Couple days later it only plays 1080p.

    Is it Apple's fault?  Or the studio?  Who knows.

    Lesson is if you want to be 100% sure you still need to buy physical media.  
    Too. Soon. This is clearly a temporary glitch and 4K purchases will be restored to 4K playback soon.
