When Warner Bros. introduced in mid-November that Wonder Woman 1984 will be available on HBO Max the identical day it premieres in choose theaters, I groaned. Not due to the choice to carry the film proper to the lounge — that’s the correct name — however I knew that, on the time, all content material on HBO Max nonetheless topped out at 1080p. Decision is one space the place the service badly trails its rivals. However it seems, Surprise Girl 1984 would be the first title that begins to rectify that when it’s launched on December twenty fifth.
In the present day, WarnerMedia introduced that Surprise Girl 1984 will stream on HBO Max in 4K. The movie may even help (relying on what your setup is able to) Dolby Imaginative and prescient, Dolby Atmos, and HDR10. The 4K stream shall be accessible on “Apple TV 4K, Amazon Fireplace TV Stick 4K, Amazon Fireplace TV Dice / 4K Fireplace TV Version sensible TVs, Chromecast Extremely, AT&T TV, and supported Android TV gadgets.” Notably lacking from the checklist, in fact, is Roku; HBO Max stays unavailable on Roku’s platform as the 2 sides stay unable to achieve a deal to place it there.
Director Patty Jenkins inspired viewers to “discover the most important highest high quality display screen” they will when watching the film.

That is the very begin, and HBO Max will “increase these capabilities to additional movies and TV sequence, in addition to including help for added gadgets, all through 2021.” I actually hope that WarnerMedia expedites that timeline as a lot as it may possibly; rivals like Disney Plus, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and others already tick off the entire checkboxes that house theater fans care about.
