This has 4K and atmos for sure? I see a little 4K icon but I guess I have a bit of trouble believing it because 4K just came out this month and because it doesn't include 4K in the description for the film or size.

As I have learned from previous similar situations, the 4K disc still have better quality because it’s not compressed as streaming.

Inconvenience, physical footprint and slightly better quality. I assume behind the scene extras are available on thr blu ray as well.

Price aside, what's the difference between google play vs itunes.

Will these automatically get upgraded to 4k?

Edit: If you click on each movie, they say they are 4k.

The 4K bluray in Canada does not have itunes compatible digital codes from what I heard. Also they do not have the Appedencies and all the extras as the original 1080p bluray set have.

The Blu-ray versions have an average bitrate of ~70 Mbps with a peak bitrate during action scenes of 100+ Mbps. This is far beyond what any streaming service is able to deliver today. Most top out below 25 Mbps.

Does the 6 film collection have something the two trilogies don't?

I compared both few times this afternoon and didn't see any difference.
