It’s taken years, but we can finally see The Lord of the Rings trilogy in 4K resolution with HDR, without having to pay an additional price.
Las streaming platforms They boast a catalog of thousands of movies. But what they don’t say in advertising is that normally only own movies are offered in 4K resolution. The rest are at 1080p. And in many cases you can access the 4K version… upon payment of a digital rental or purchase.
Next September there will be a clash of the titans: The House of the Dragon, the prequel to HBO Max’s Game of Thrones, will face The Rings of Power, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings from Prime Video .
Both will compete to see who gets more subscribers and millions of hours viewed. Although they are not comparable, because the Prime subscription is very different from any other.
Surely these days many people are watching Game of Thrones or the LOTR trilogy to catch up, before the premiere of the two new megaseries.
As we mentioned in the introduction, until a few days ago they were only available in streaming at 1080p resolution without HDR. If you wanted to watch them in 4K you had to rent or buy them on Prime Video, or buy the 4K Blu-ray version.
This very week, HBO Max has corrected the problem by presenting the original series of Games of Thrones in HDR and Dolby Vision, which can now be enjoyed for free.
But Prime Video It didn’t take long to make a move. Just a few days later, she has already uploaded to her platform The enhanced Lord of the Rings trilogy at 4K resolution with HDR. There’s no Dolby Vision because Prime Video doesn’t use it.
This new version generated great controversy when it was released on Blu-ray 4K, because although it was created by Peter Jackson there are many changes in the colorimetry of the films, to match them with those of The Hobbit. and also shows too washed out an imagewhich makes the special effects “sing” more.
ON HBO Max you can also see them, but they are in 1080p version.
In any case, this is good news for fans of both franchises, who can now enjoy the movies and series that gave rise to the myth, with the highest resolution and image quality. Of course, the new series The House of the Dragon and The Rings of Power will be released directly in 4K and HDR. The first, also with Dolby Vision.
