    As the subject says really...

    I have a stash of about £100 credit on my iTunes account and want to ensure I get best value for my money so I am tempted to wait if the movies I want get reduced.

    Thanks in advance

    Every 3-4 months they drop the price by $6-7 for a few days. You have to watch for it.

    Failing that do you get a digital download when you buy the dvd over there?

    Edit...

    I see your in the uk lol my bad

    The price drops from £13.99 to £9.99 over here. It's usually selected titles.

    But as above HMV is usually a good place to pick up a bargain which includes a iTunes/Google code

    Thanks for the reply.

    Do you know if the iTunes codes allow for HD downloads?

    Yes. The beauty of Disney Digital file management is that it gives you everything, including cross platform access (vudu, google play, iTunes). The only problem is if it's in the vault your stuck until it comes out do the vault. Some early BDs didn't come with a digital copy and they are also in the vault so you can't get a digital copy.

    They are supposedly working on another round of physical media releases for 4K. The expanded color pallet of 4K will allow them to present all of the catalog animation films in all their glory that were limited by the initial BD release. Many complained about some lack of detail being lost, but it's a function of the color capability on BD not the digital master. They don't need to remaster any of them because that's been done.

    Aladdin in October and Pinnochio in the Spring are the last of the Diamond Editions so it's expected to be announced early to mid 2016.

    Cool! That will allow me to buy all of the Star Wars movies again for the 7th time!

    4K. The amount that I've spent on them.

    It's the Force.

    That damned Force.

    And me all weak-minded when it comes to these.

    Not sure about the UK...in the USA we have the Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) app.
    even SD Disney digital codes will convert to HD!
    Also, every week they have an older Disney title discounted to $10 (from normal $15-20) non-animated so far.

    Also, they had a Princess Sale a few months back.
    Recently had a Pixar sale when Inside Out came to theaters.

    not sure if any of that helps.
    Also, if like the US. You can enter the Digital HD code (from DVD or Bluray) into iTunes or via the DMA app, THEN you get a second use of that code at DigitalCopyPlus.com! 2 codes for 1 movie. some folks will give them away and others sell them online.
