This is all so triggering, but question: do Apple Music and Tidal have 4K playback or are they 1080p only?

They. Look. F***ing. Phenomenal. It’s like watching them for the first time.

What I thought too. So many details you notice that you never could before.

New colours!

So much more depth to the frame.

Just gorgeous 😍
That's awesome they actually fixed that

I'm assuming they've just restored the existing audio we've been listening to for years. The changes present in the IMAX version borne out of necessity in creating a surround sound experience worthy of an IMAX theatre? That's all I can think of.

I didn't care much about the clips as all of my hype went to the unreleased demos, but man, even though I watched it with Reddit's compression Beat It looks really good. Can't wait to watch it in native 4k!

Yeah I'm pretty sure the changes were made due to the fact they couldn't find the original assets to create a surround mix (Still think they could have done it better so that it didn't sound different but that's another convo). It's good they reverted it back to the original audio for this release.

Watching the “Thriller” clip makes me even angrier at myself that I missed it in theaters.

Absolutely worth the wait. It took far too long, but maaaaaaaaaan, what a joy it is to finally have it (and that they put in the effort to make it look good).

If they put unseen shots on the clips sort of like they did on the leaked HIStory 25 Billie Jean remaster that would've been really cool to see.

I wanted to go and see it in Theatres but it was only shown in one cinema on the other side of the country lol. I haven't been able to watch the videos yet but I can't wait to check them out!

I’m sorry I keep commenting here, but by God, it’s so good to see everybody coming together universally to freak out about this. I don’t think the community has been on the same page since the lead up before “Breaking News” premiered.

Ehhh, tampering with the most famous short film of all time seems like a recipe for disaster. I would definitely love to see an “alternate cut” with different takes/angles though!

Surely but what I meant was for them to put a few seconds of unseen shots on the clips every now and then, it wouldn't change things all that much.

Its possible that they got released on Tidal/Apple Music accidentaly too early because they are not on Youtube yet.
It could just be that it's taking forever for the Youtube versions to process, not sure. I'll need to wait until it's on there as I am not signed up to any of those streaming services lol.
