Apple & Intel have the monopoly on 4K HDR Streaming media. You need one or the other to view it (Intel SGX DRM module) sometimes both. This locks many people out who have no interest in Apple's vastly over priced equipment! I think Netflix & Prime Video allow it if you have the right hardware otherwise you just get a 4K stream with no HDR. many people are oblivious to this as well! They equate 4K to 4K HDR!!There are, it seems, ways to rip iTunes content for USB/disc playback, removing the DRM along the way, if you want to go that route. It concerns me that you can buy content on iTunes only to have it removed if a licensing or rights issue comes along at some point, from what I can make out, which seems wrong to me. What happens to titles you’ve bought and you decide to close your iTunes/Apple account? The simple fact is that it’s far cheaper to publish new titles purely in the digital realm, and skip physical media production costs. The death of physical media, be it CD, DVD or BR is therefore accelerated, prompting manufacturers like Samsung to stop making players. Sadly, I think that the end of physical media is well and truly on the horizon. I have no idea how much longer we collectors have to keep buying films on physical media, but our days are numbered. Five years perhaps, maybe less, unless 8K ends-up being so bandwidth demanding that physical media is the only viable way of delivering uncompressed content. I will be buying a couple of backup BR players in the next few months, because the writing is on the wall writ large.
