Warner Dedicated to Digital Copy on Blu-ray Releases?
We’re mildly ecstatic to see that WB has been pulling out the stops with regard to their upcoming BD title releases (Speed Racer, Run Fat Boy Run, The Matrix), and their most recent inclusion of Digital Copy (DC).
Why only mildly ecstatic? Well, WB has yet to release an official press release stating their commitment to DC. Naturally, without their pledge to include DC on every new release in the future, we’ll remain mildly ecstatic — as opposed to full blown ecstatic.
We believe that Digital Copy is a courtesy that more studios — if not all — should fully embrace to further secure the trust of the consumers that make them so bloody rich. Every time we see another title receiving the DC treatment, we can’t help but smile — the kind of smile that’s brought about by witnessing acts of kindness — and feel compelled to pick up the film, even if it is a “stinker” like Jumper or The Eye.
In short, the inclusion of DC is proof that the studios you love, are loving you back, at least, that’s how we choose to perceive it. It’s their own way of saying “thanks” for our continued support, and in turn we have a copy of the film that we can dump onto our iPod (Warners DC only works with Window Media devices) or computer. Sure it’s only an SD copy, but perhaps even that will change in the years to come.
All in all, we’re glad to see another studio adding DC to their new release arsenal. We’d just prefer that they make it official already. What do you say, Warner?
Editor’s note: Hey studios, WHERE THE HELL IS OUR MANAGED COPY?????
