A quick note before we start today’s post: A bunch of you have e-mailed over the past week or so and I’ve got a bit of a backlog in getting back to everyone. So if you haven’t heard from me yet, I’ll do my best to respond to all of you over the next few days. Thanks for your patience!

Now then... let’s have an overdue announcement news round-up, shall we?

First up today, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is going to be releasing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on 4K Ultra HD on 11/7 (SRP $31.99 each), along with the previously revealed Harry Potter 8-Film Collection in 4K UHD (SRP around $215.99). We’re awaiting the studio’s official press release, but Walmart already has the discs listed. Pre-orders are not up yet on Amazon, but we’ll add the links as soon as they are. Audio will be English DTS:X, with HDR10 high dynamic range. You can see the over artwork to the left and also below. [Read on here…]

Introducing The 4K Ultra HD Release List!

With so many good new and catalog titles finally coming to the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format from all of the major Hollywood studios – and a few indie studios too – we wanted to make a list of all of the titles currently available, announced for release, and/or known to be coming in the U.S. and U.K. markets based on our sources. We also have a second list for International releases. We’re grouping them by studio first and then by street date. Note that this is NOT meant to be a list of every possible SKU, every regional variation, every retail exclusive version, etc – rather, it’s simply a list of all the films available on the format.

We’re also noting which titles are native 4K and have Dolby Vision HDR – if not indicated, assume the title is a 2K up-sample and/or that it has HDR-10. We’re also indicating the object-based audio format used (if such is included) and noting reference-quality titles with an asterisk (*). If the title has been reviewed here on The Digital Bits, we’ll provide a link to our review. Finally, each title has a purchase link for Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, or other international Amazon, if available. Alternately, you can use one of these button links...
