Buying is ridiculous anyway. Streaming is the future!
To infinity and beyond!
Shame on Disney. Milking the kids for all their pennies.
Seeing as Steve Jobs was Disney's biggest shareholder is this a sign of trouble in paradise?
I wonder what would happen if Disney were to pull all their content from the iTunes store, including all their assets. They're one of the world's largest conglomerates. Anyway, I personally prefer buying or renting from Amazon.
The theaters are already yelling, and are taking a big hit (for various reasons not just these proposals).
My guess is a lot of this has to do with the free upgrade from HD to 4K. Disney films were already $5 higher than other films. I’m pretty sure Disney wants you to re-purchase a film to gain 4K access.
I find it hilarious we have so many people crying out at Disney for wanting 25$ instead of 20 yet nobody batted an eye when Apple just raised the prices on all iPhones and the Apple TV.
It should be noted that Disney is planning on launching its own streaming platform probably sometime in 2018. Whether or not it'll be successful as a stand alone service, who knows. But it's been a bone of contention in the industry, as Disney has since removed it movies from Netflix as well. They're also one of the last holdouts on Dolby Vision.
Nice of Apple to automatically upgrade old movies - but all mine are a Disney.
The complaint is that Disney does not discount their older movies like other studios do.
Reality is that the 4K movies are not worth more to 99.9% of the people on earth as they don't care or won't notice the picture quality difference. The move to 1080P was big and did add value to what we had before that, which was abysmal by any standard. Additionally 4K cannot improve upon the crappy scripts and writing that most movies have.

Recently I Purchased Guardians of the Galaxy 4k to my surprise the digital copy that it came with it,is only in HD if you wanted the 4k version you had to pay another $25 for it which is total BS in Disney's part. My co worker called Vudu thinking it was a mistake Vudu answered that all the 4k blurays only come with the HD digital copy. Total crap.

You can call DMA now. That code issue has been fixed. DMA will see your redeem and push the 4K to Vudu for you.
I gotta be honest, I must be a dinosaur or something but I would rather own a physical copy if I am paying full pop for it, not an iTunes Digital movie
So I won't be watching 4K Moana with my kid when I get my new Apple TV?
Well with Disney planning its own streaming service and pulling their movies from all other streaming services in a couple of years I can imagine that they aren't really in a rush to play nice with any company offering streaming content
Never expected Disney to act like a Daffy Duck
No. Only Disney movie that is currently in 4K is Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Next two up are Cars 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Disney is just getting into the 4K business.
That is one Stingy mouse
At first I thought it was odd, but like others are saying, Disney just got into the 4K game a few weeks ago. I'm sure they will join in soon enough.
Also, it seems like a lot of users seem to be confused- this is about the iTunes Store selling 4K content, as well as the auto upgrade from HD to 4K with your previous purchases. This has nothing to do with Disney starting it's own streaming service.
These are all HILARIOUS:
Used "Disney" and "losing" and "lose" in the same sentence.... LOLOLOLOL....
Yeah, like that will happen because they won't let Apple set their pricing - what's next, Apple sets the price for their movie tickets?
You don't watch Disney cartoons, but you do watch their Sci-Fi and Comic shows...
iPhone X starting at $999 = okay, Disney 4K not $20 = not okay...
Eh who cares, nothing good comes from Disney anyway.
So you don't like Marvel movies or Star Wars either?
Yes, in fact it is, believe it or not.
