Has anyone else felt ripped off by Amazon selling premium movie products that include a digital copy in Ultraviolet format? This cannot be used in iTunes, surely the worlds most common format, and requires installation of software that does not work very well on Macs. Warner Bros are obviously trying to protect their market.

Don't waste your money - buy the cheapest hard copy you can find and get the digital copy from iTunes.

In a word "NO"

There's nothing wrong with it. It works fine. Not everybody has iTunes, this is universal and allows more people to use it.

Read the instructions people, it works!

Im actively not buying the titles that have ultraviolet digital copies, as I have 2 idevices and itunes, so don't want them to be split over 2 repositories.

Ill buy them when theyre cheaper as single disc editions.

Thanks for your comments Bourne1886. As most of my consumer products are Apple and I cannot get a fast connection, it is not possible to stream video in real time via wifi or cable. Therefore, I am limited to using a v expensive stream via my mobile network. Any idea how expensive (and slow) that can be?

I'm not a Luddite - I just don't want to go down the Beta or HDDVD formats and stay with the most commonly used format by Apple users.

Perhaps it is time to start using Handbrake again since the industry is not meeting my needs as a consumer..

Well you can download the Flixster app on your apple device which then allow you to download your UV movie collection on to your phone. You can then watch the movies offline using the app. The file size of these films are actually much smaller than the normal digital copies, probably optimised to the device you're downloading to.

Indeed. The only people whining about UV copies appear to be Apple users. Not everyone uses or even wants to use Apple products - I certainly don't want iTunes anywhere near my PC. I don't see the hassle in setting up a Flixter account and adding the films to it. It's no different from creating an iTunes account, except you don't have to install the proprietary software in order to use your Digital Copies. I have two UV titles so far and you can either stream or download to watch later on PC, Mac, Android and numerous other devices.

Exactly, Apple users need to realise that it's not right to have exclusivity.
Having a Flixster app on your iPad is no different to having the iTunes app. You have to open up iTunes on your desktop to watch films, so why is it such a hardship to do the same for the Flixster website? And yes you can download the UV film to the app to watch offline, no streaming people!
And yes I'm an Apple user aswell before anybody says anything. I realise that not having all your eggs in one basket is a good thing!
