With that said it doesn't look like the British Film Institute release 4k blu-rays.
They do. A quick search "bfi bluray 4k" does return some of their 4k releases, this for example: https://shop.bfi.org.uk/heat-and-dust-blu-ray.html
It's not a 4k bluray, its restored in 4k, and then put on a regular bluray disc.

This. Kids today miss out so much by download and streaming culture, listening through tinny headphones to music via a mobile phone, watching clips on a miniature screen. Half the pleasure of being a teenager was that Saturday morning trip to the music store (and later the video shop) to buy this week's favourite, and it was my only reason for going to big cities to scout out rare releases. The thrill of the chase is all gone now with today's instant gratification brigade. I like film or music, I buy it physically. Simples.

Today's young generation is a different beast. I sometimes test my (very young) couisin. For instance, one month she is in love with Lana De Rey. Two months later and she is totally clueless about who she is :lol: When I tell "you used to like that song or this song of her", the answer is simple: "Really? Then I must have removed them from my iPod at some time". and that's all. No artistic loyalty, my mon cher :)

It could stream in 4K though (If any service wanted to add this to its lineup)

Regular blurays can bear 4k content too, just not that much as 4k blurays. Heck, you could have 2 minutes of 4k video played from a CD-ROM (if the player is 40x speed at least).

So long as the content is 4k the release can be called "4k" as far as I am concerned, no matter what the disk is.

Yeah, but in this case its downsampled to 1080p.

There's virtually no difference between 2k and 4k. Standard bluray is good enough for me.

There is little difference in picture quality. There is an absolutely massive difference in dynamic range for color. A film like 'It Couldn't Happen Here' would benefit enormously from 4K HDR.

Not massive, tiny difference esp. in dark imagery.

Absolutely massive, actually, to the point that Hollywood studios still aren't set up for a native 4K color pipeline because the delta in color gamut is so huge compared to 2K P3 theatrical colorspace and HD home video specs like rec709. This is why most current HDR passes are post processes.

You have no idea what you're talking about.

I've done a lot of video restoration work, and working with 1080p, and 4K are completely different.
Yes, technically there are a lot of differences. Thats the point.

The only problem is most people won't know what the difference is or care. Very few people
have 4K bluray players. Most people don't even have 4K tv's that are big enough to show the
difference.

Finally, setting up the colors properly is a whole other story, and issue to deal with.

Unless, you're a hardcore video or film person, there is no real difference with 4k and 1080p to casual viewers.

Thanks!
Pre-ordered too. It's not impossible for limited editions to sell out before they're released!
