    Watching Mission Impossible: Fallout in 4k on Google Play movies is their any difference between that and DTV Cinema 4k? If not I am not seeing that much difference between that and HD. Actually the upconverted HD to 4k looks better than 4k. I also have a 50 mbps connection.

    Sorry forgot to add that even 4k YouTube videos looked better.

    Watch most of my rented movies on VUDU...4k HDR with ATMOS for $5.99. I think D charges $10.99, I guess because they can. Video and audio quality is very good. Not as good as blu-ray disk obviously but pretty close. I have done a/b comparisons using movies that I own and audio is very close but I can definitely tell on the video side. It is subtle but I can discern the difference. This is in my home theater using a 7.2.4 ATMOS setup and a Optoma UHZ65 laser 4k HDR projector and a 102” screen.

    Streaming just isn’t likely as good as sat deliverer 4K. But neither is in the class of owning it on a 4K disc.

    Agree, nothing beats 4K Ultra HD discs.

    Check with your local library. You may be eligible to have Kanapy and Hoopla for free. They have some great movies.
