Yeah, that is frustrating. The only reason I buy music on CDs anymore is when it's cheaper that way (like if some disc is available for $3 or 4 shipped, used, on Amazon vs. $9.99 on iTunes or Amazon MP3). If there were a good solution for digital video, I would probably be buying that way, too, although I don't buy nearly as much video as music.While I buy nothing but digital music these days, I haven't made the leap to movies yet.
Same here. I want to watch them via Air Video, and can't do that with iTunes purchases.The biggest "con" for me is that because of FairPlay DRM, the videos can ONLY be played on iTunes, iPod/iPad, and Apple TV. I can't serve them up to a DLNA device such as my PS3 or a network-equipped TV. And all this talk of Plex, Boxee, XBMC? Forget it.
America has iTunes Extras so they usually do have deleted scenes etc. I don't have access to iTunes Extras so I know very little about the extra features.- Limited/no extra features (commentary, deleted scenes, etc).
My iTunes-brought copy of Team America: World Police comes with Captions... It depends whether the film-company offers it with that particular movie- No subtitles / CC (I think this is still true?)
I'm curious if anyone else can comment... does iTunes Extras now mean that most movies have "extra" features that are comparable to or better than what is offered on DVD or BD?America has iTunes Extras so they usually do have deleted scenes etc. I don't have access to iTunes Extras so I know very little about the extra features.
You do realize that a BD player will also play all of your DVDs. Right? You don't need to repurchase those movies. I only replaced a few of my very favorite DVDs with BD's because I really wanted them in HD. For the most part, I still have my DVDs and just started adding BDs to my movie collection.I don't have Blue Ray and never will. It looks amazing, but I am not repurchasing my dvd's again only to switch to some sort of digital media and have a bunch of discs sitting around.
You don't want to take advantage of better technology because you'd rather wait for even better technology?I do realize that you can play dvd's on the Blue Ray player, but if the point is that the quality is so much better then "I" would start hating the old dvd's (and yes I know it upscales). This isn't everyone, but I am ok with skipping the storage of another physical media to only be replaced in a few years.
