Amazing how problematic these things can be. I suspect that UHD investment by the studios from a manufacturing perspective is being done on the cheap. It’s going to be the last mass-consumer physical media format and I think right now they are just milking those of us who will re-buy everything
Could be a good thing. When the inevitable 8K format appears, it may be like the Laser Disc days where we had some truly special editions, released by Criterion and others, costing $100+ per title. Far less titles, but more the titles we would want to own as special editions.
