    Its for their own media streaming system though makes sense it appears to be targeted at ultra wealthy enthusiasts though if you look at their media streaming hardware prices :eek: I doubt 25 x £14 means much to them somehow!!

    Nothing new there then, they still stuck in the "regional restrictions" rubbish in the movie industry with services like this always prioritising americans, the other issue is they will never get all the studios signing up either, as they make more money splitting their libraries across multiple services than all in one and they will do what makes them the most money.

    The ones they do have signed up will also likely pull out later, they will do what they did to netflix which is hike the wholesale fee up to keep the license arrangement going which will probably make them part ways.

    One thing is for certain 4K UHD on PC is over before it ever started! You can buy a 4K UHD player which also up scales BD & DVD to 4K for under £250 vs you need about £1.2K worth of recent PC hardware to playback right now & even then its limited to HDMI 2.0 + HDCP2.2 so that eliminates many Display Port PC monitors as they did not all come with HDCP2.2 + HDR10 or the newer HDR std!
