Given the download options range from CAM to WebRip to BluRay Rip etc- how does one know if it's worth waiting for a 4K release?

Westworld S03 for example released a while ago but the 4K version only came in November- I waited for that before watching.

Where can I see what'll release in 4K (and when?)? I've held off a few things which then never appeared in 4K and then either forgotten about it or couldn't find it again :(

https://ultrahd.highdefdigest.com/releasedates.html - that seems to list old releases which are re-released in 4K

Help!

What does it matter. download and watch, then redownload if you want the 4k's.

Only data.

Whether it's worth waiting depends how you feel about the movie, I guess. Something with decent cinematography would be worth the wait for me.

Thanks- will run through my queue and see what'll release when.

As an example, I take it Yellowstone won't be available in 4k?

I don't watch that show or know much about it but I'd check if it's filmed in sufficient resolution to make a 4k release feasible. Going by the older seasons not being released in 4k, I'm guessing it's not.

Or maybe they're planning a 4k release later.

Get an nVidia Shield, no need to worry about 4K or not 4K, it does very good upscaling ...

Watch it?

I assume you have a 4K TV?

Tenet- you'd watch it in CAM as soon as available? Then again in 1080p WebRip/BluRay then again in 4K?

Where do you draw the line?

For something you know will/should be good, wouldn't you wait for the 4K release and watch it once?

Delayed gratification :)

That link in #2 is what I was looking for- I can browse latest releases then check if it'll come out in 4K (and when!) and wait for those.
For the 1080p only stuff, I don't need to wait in vain for a non-existent 4K release


Lol first world problems.

Wonderful, isn't it :)
