    If the quality is at least on a par with DVD I'd be happy: I never watch the special features anyway, and all I do with a DVD I buy is rip it to my iTunes Library. If I can get the same result with less hassle for around the same price I'll be all over it :D

    Erm.... er.... um.....

    £25? Are they ******* mental?

    I know we have no exact pricing yet and it did say between £6 and £25 but £25 is a stupid amount to even estimate. I would suggest (and its likely we in the UK will be ripped off again) that these movies will be around the £14.99 mark. Which in my opinion is still way too much. Thats about half the price of a cheap DVD player.

    Brace yourself for UK/US comparison :rolleyes:

    £15 = $30

    Maximum cost on US iTunes store for movie is $14.99 (I believe)

    $14.99 = £7.50

    /end comparison that everyone already knows about

    £9.99 would be an 'ok' price but still in my opinion a bit pricey.

    I will most likely continue my current movie purchasing techniques.

    I would demand a discounted rate for a downloaded product.

    The production cost is significantly lower and you receive no media (no special features etc).

    As with the Cassette -> CD & VHS -> DVD rip-off, they're at it again with Digital media.
