    Highly Recommend "Interstellar". Easily one of the greatest films which never got the full exposure it deserved.

    Whoops…..Sorry it's just the DVD, had the black case which I assumed as the 4K case.

    I'd love to compare a UHD BD to a standard BD. I've had my OLED for over 6 months and only recently played a physical BD (GoT S1) for the first time. It was no better than that of UHD Netflix. What the actual fark were Sony thinking not including a UHDBD player on the PS4Pro?

      Keep in mind the bitrate of a standard Blu-Ray is a lot higher than 4K streaming from Netflix. If I recall properly a 4K movie from Netflix could be around 8-10gb or less, but the same movie on UHD blu-Ray will be anywhere from 40-60gb.

      I watched GoT S1 on bluray on the weekend and it looks superb. Really pushes the limits of standard bluray.

        I have an LG C8 OLED and have Netflix/Stan/Youtube all in 4k and I wasn't able to really get anything else out of the physical version. Maybe I should keep watching and really pay attention to detail? I dunno. Regardless, oh my god season 1. Uncle Benjen!!!! A sane Theon. Direwolves all together!!! The nostalgia is so real!

          Tbh not everyone notices this sort of thing. Not a big deal.
          For me, HDR and the extra colours HDR brings are a way bigger seller than the extra resolution.

          Dude GoT is shot in 2K then upscaled. And you're comparing GoT to whatever on Netflix. Find something on Netflix that is 4K and also available on 4K UHD Blu Ray and come back. Can you notice the difference? Yes as an A B comparison sure. Is it that much better? Arguable.

            @NoApostrophePlurals: Fair point. As I say it was the first bit of physical media I'd tried so was curious on further opinions. I expect true 4k to be face melting

              @Hinee: Well you haven't tried anything truly 4K yet. You've only watched compressed and upscaled stuff (which is still 90% of the way there. It's not just about pixels. UHD BD can have better audio and the most important thing is HDR.

              May I highly recommend something like Planet Earth II to try out? It is a must own on UHD BD!

    Everest was $7 in 4K the other day had it in my basket and neglected to checkout! Doh!

    Somewhat related question, how does the XBOX One S/X perform as a 4K Bluray player?

    • +5 votes

      It’s ok and does the job.

      If you have a high end tv though you’ll notice a better picture quality with something like the newish Panasonic players with Dolby Vision and HDR tone mapping.

      I’ve got both so can speak from experience.

      I have the S and it seems OK. My problems with it are:
      * The remote you can buy is pretty lousy. The buttons are lighted which is good, but it's a little thing and play/fast forward/rewind buttons are at the bottom so they're awkward press. I often don't get presses registered.
      * The blu ray software menus are geared for game controllers, so use up/down/left/right and OK. Something like 10 button presses to issue a "menu" command, even with the remote.
      * The IR receiver on the Xbox S is at the very bottom if you stand it vertically. I have to hold the remote up in the air to get line of sight over living room obstacles.
      * If you have a Dolby Atmos receiver, the Xbox S and X is very picky and often won't recognise Atmos support if HDMI is routed through TV then to receiver via HDMI ARC. You have to route Xbox through receiver, which adds lag (if you play games).
      * No multi-region/region free support for DVDs or non-4k blu-rays (4k blu-rays are not region locked).
      * It takes a while to boot, and you have to navigate through the most horrendous menu system to get to the blu-ray player app. It's like you have to solve a 16x16 sudoku every time you want to play a movie (OK maybe not that bad but it's super annoying).

        Press the little overlapping squares button on the remote, then press up to get to the "top menu" button, then press A.
        Should only be 3 clicks.

        Atmos isn't properly supported over ARC. Plugging the Xbox direct to the receiver won't add lag unless something is very wrong.

        Bluray app opens automatically when you put a disc in.

    I can confirm that the Xbox One X plays 4k movies even on a 1080p TV
