Ouch that's cold.... is there something wrong with Blinkbox?

maybe it's simply the concept of paying more for download than buying the actual dvd...?

Blinkbox seems fine... looks like a good deal to me.

But a download is not a DVD so why vote it cold on that basis?

Was wondering same thing myself
Suppose the "I can download for free on illegal torrent sites thus assisting in screwing the film industry" voters are contributing - unless anyone has found this cheaper?? Link??

This aint cheaper on DVD

The issue with Blinkbox may be that you can only watch it on one pc - no transferring to another unless you haven't watched it yet, no burning to DVD, no watching it again on your ipod etc. It's a purchase but you only get to watch it in the one place.

amazon.co.uk/exe…***

Pay a pound extra and watch it over and over on DVD.

Not voting cold though as this may interest some people on download base only.:thumbsup:

"You get to keep it"? Get real.

You get to keep a Windows Media file that once authorised cannot be transferred to another computer, cannot be played on mobile devices, cannot be backed up to disc (you can but it's useless if you PC tanks - the point of the backup). This is little more than an extended rental. As soon as you change your computer, reformat or accidentally delete the file or its authorisation file, that's it, your rental period is over.

Media companies are waking up to the news that you don't need DRM to sell music. Hopefully they'll recognise that and get rid of these stupid restrictions on video that drive people to piracy in the first place... Would you find it easier to buy a dvd and then rip it for your phone... or just download it from a torrent site?

It just doesn't seem good value for money to me. DRM restrictions make it pretty pointless. You're better off just buying the DVD. If you want multiple copies on different devices then just download a .avi release off the internet for free (or rip your own DVD if that way inclined). The movie industry need to get their heads out their asses when it comes to DRM and digital downloads.

Had to vote it cold because the DRM is so restrictive, and the price for a proper copy of the film isnt much higher
sorry

Just watch it via ps3, its really quite good quality or remove drm. I have also found you can download to multiple computers too.

Lol at the idiots who immediately mention pirates. The entertainment industry is panicking and becomming even greedier. The market had become extremely saturated, and increasing on previous "al time high sales" is difficult.

When everyone is spending all they can, how do you squeeze more blood from a stone, by selling people the same item they already have in a different format (this model suits some people), or simply charge them time and time again for the same said item.

In the current climate, these corporations have the perfect opportunity to use the media to create new powers. Sales are dwindling (really? recession?).

The business model of the future is to charge a larger fee then previous generations, but, only on a subscription basis. no pay, no play, no rights.

Jumping in and falling for all of this rubbish is playing straight into their hands.

I didn't follow that at all! I might be a bit thick, sorry.
