One Apple support representative said that the downgrade was due to changes implemented by Warner Bros, which could potentially be accurate as that's often a reason why 4K availability shifts, but Apple support representatives don't always have the most up to date information.
Apple has been offering 4K movie titles from a range of different movie studios since the launch of the Apple TV 4K.
Update: This issue may be resolved as it appears many of the movies that were downgraded to HD are once again available in 4K.
