Yes, everyone here is just fabricating stories. Why can't you read what people are explaining to you?

You can then delete any content you have in 720p, then, assuming it's still in the iTunes store, go the Purchased tab in the iTunes store, and re-download the content in 1080p.
Thanks for the tip. Just found it and re-downloading.

It's been explained many times in this thread that they come in 1080p downloads and how to make sure you get them. Please pay attention before confusing other people.

Sorry if it's been mentioned but I grabbed the Jaws Blu-ray and was able to register and download the iTunes HD version as well as the Ultraviolet HD.

It makes perfect sense... the digital copies are for ipad, ipods, iphones or other portable stuff. You'd don't really need that type of huge file for a portable device.

AppleTV streams the HD content (at least for me it does with an SD copy)
but viewing on the Mac they suck.

Only The Hunger Games streams at HD for me. All of the other digital copies I have stream at somewhere in the 480p range.

That's what I am referring to. Take a look at the screenshot at http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/...-up-by-icloud/.

If you notice just above the movie's star rating it says "Widescreen." That means it's streaming at SD, not HD. If it says "1080p" or "720p," it will stream in HD.

I'm thinking it streams at a decent bitrate in SD, but it's most definitely not HD on my Apple TV 3. I noticed it when I was closer to the TV watching Beauty and the Beast then looking at how pixelated the title logo was for The Lion King (both of which are SD digital copies).

The worst part was that I can't unsee the SD quality now that I spotted it.

Can anyone confirm whether the digital copy code that comes with the purchase of a DVD/digital copy edition of The Hunger Games (or other DVD - not BluRay - titles) is downloadable via the iTunes Store in HD? Or since the digital code came in a DVD/digital file combo pack is the downloaded file only in SD?

In other words, does the quality of the digital download for The Hunger Games and/or other titles depend on whether or not the BluRay combo set or DVD combo set was purchased?

Thanks.

Replying to myself here. The digital code that comes with The Hunger Games DVD is for a standard definition download. Apparently the BluRay combo pack is the only one giving the HD digital download (besides a straight iTunes store purchase, of course).

FYI....
