Apple Launches iTunes Sale With 4K HDR Bundles Starting at $19.99 for Three Movies

Apple today launched a new iTunes Movies sale centering around 4K HDR bundles, allowing Apple TV 4K owners to further expand -- or start -- their 4K film collections at a cheaper price. The bundles are divided up by studios and further split into four main genre categories under each studio: Action and Adventure, Comedy, Drama, and Sci-Fi and Fantasy.


Most of the bundles are $19.99 for three movies, although some rise to $22.99 and $24.99 depending on the studio. For the most part, sale prices haven't hit the SD versions of each collection, with some SD price tags still as much as double the price of the 4K versions of each bundle. Below we've listed each collection and the movies you will find in each:

- Comedy ($19.99): Central Intelligence, CHiPs, Get Hard

Who and Why do you rent or buy movies nowadays? I'm wondering who re-watches the same movie more than once?

The only movie I watched more than once was Napoleon Dynamite (like 10 times). I'm on netflix, amazon prime video, hbo. What is the appeal to renting or buying movies? Just wondering

Watching movies are fun. Rewatching some of my favorite movies is fun. The nostalgia? The happy feelings a favorite movie can bring? I have a few hundred movies in my iTunes collection and will happily rewatch many of them and will probably watching them all even more in the next few years as my daughter grows up. Me and my wife rewatching The Middle Earth movies pretty much annually. Same with Star Wars. Same with the MCU movies. We have dozens of musicals (old and new) that we enjoy. Plus you get all of the special features with iTunes Extras. Movies are just like music to me. It's easy to rewatch and enjoy.

Drama ($24.99) ('https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie-collection/fox-4k-hdr-drama-collection/id1321794122'): Life of Pi, The Martian, The Revenant
This is the only bundle worth buying IMO. Three solid releases.
The rest all have one good movie out of three.

In the UK we seem to have lots of individual movies at £4.99 rather than this offer.

Link pls.

These random bundles are always an awful idea. If you have a lot of iTunes movies already, chances are good you already have at least one of the movies in the bundle, meaning you’re buying it again to get the other movies, thus reducing the savings. And chances are low you’re actually going to want all of the movies in the bundle, so you’re paying for movies you don’t want.

What would be great is if you could get a credit for movies in bundles you already own. So for example if I own 1 Thor movie that I bought individually and later a 4-movie Thor bundle comes out that contains my movie, I could get partial credit for having already owned part of it.

When listing an object that has a comma in its title (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) am I incorrect to say that a semicolon should be used instead of the comma in the list?

I bought the VCR tape, the DVD, the Blu-Ray... NOT buying the 4K :D
Beside, through the years I rarely watched more than once or twice movies that I bought.

Jiminy. Those bundles are such a snooze fest..... Why no Criterion Collection titles? Now THAT would be a bundle. Say, a Tarkovsky + a Bresson + an Ozu (or Dreyer).
