Streaming is great, but it’s not always reliable. For your go-to favorite movies and TV shows, it’s nice to have a physical object to put on the shelf, one that won’t vanish into the ether or become unusable if your internet goes out. The video and audio quality of discs is also generally better than most streaming services can muster. And since PS5 and Xbox Series X can play 4K UHD discs, why not give them a try?
The only question is, when are your favorite movies and TV shows coming to 4K UHD and Blu-ray? The people want to know. So we took that question and ran with it. Below, you’ll find a list of the biggest upcoming releases, followed by a full rundown of release dates and buy links for all the upcoming home releases you’re likely to be interested in. Please enjoy.
