Surprisingly, it seems that 4K/UHD Digital Streaming over Ultraviolet is not included with most 4K/UHD Blu Ray disc purchases.
I’ve been having this conversation about 4K/UHD with my coworker. This is a list of 4K/Blu Ray/Digital HD titles I own, the distributor, and whether the Digital HD stream rights you redeem comes with the UHD rights as well.
It seems that even if you bought the 4K/UHD version of the movie, you likely don’t get the UHD streaming rights and have to pay for it separately (full price) if you want them for the ability to download and playback on mobile devices, laptops, tablets, etc.
- Jason Bourne – Universal (Complimentary UHD)

- Sully – Warner Bros (HDX only) UHD for $29
- Secret Life of Pets – Universal (HDX only) UHD for $29
- Star Trek Beyond – Paramount (HDX only) UHD for $29
- Mad Max – Warner Bros (HDX only) UHD for $29

Kudos to Jason Bourne & Suicide Squad for granting 4K/UHD streaming rights to buyers of the 4K/UHD discs at no extra charge.
Note: There are no Disney/Marvel Studios titles available on UHD – either via disc or streaming. Disney has chosen to not make the 4K/UHD discs for these available for purchase, likely so they can get you to rebuy the same titles later at 4K/UHD.
- Pete’s Dragon
- Finding Dory
- Civil War
