“Beat It” Now in 4K

November 15, 2022

Sony Music and the Estate have finally started to put up 4K videos and the first one to have the amazing treatment on Youtube is “Beat It”. The process will only be for few videos related to Thriller to celebrate its 40th Anniversary with the release of “Thriller 40” on November 18.

“Beat It” and “Thriller” were shown at the Thriller 40 Immersive Experience in Dusseldorf, Germany last week-end so we believe the next video will be “Thriller”.

We might also have “Billie Jean” in 4K soon.

But for now, watch “Beat It” in 4K here:

didn't have a chance to watch it yet but hopefully this picture is not indicative of what the 4K transfer looks like confused
That picture has that plastic look to it that all those bad AI generated 4K content have, without grain (like the first Predator BluRay, with those shiny plastic people in it and no film grain.)
