Amazon replied to my question about the type of digital copy. "Since the digital copy is an Ultraviolet digital copy, you can visit Flixster's UltraViolet Support Center for answers to common questions." This would imply that it is NOT iTunes compatible, but the streaming Ultraviolet version.

I am not a fan of the Ultraviolet/Flixster service at all. It is not intuitive and does not place my digital copy where I would use it most which is in iTunes. I know there is an app for it, but that requires streaming. The whole point of having a digital copy is so I can have a copy on my computer or mobile device and take it anywhere like on a flight...where I would not be able to stream. Technically this isn't a "digital copy" at all. It is just access to servers at some company that may or may not survive. It's false advertising. I will not be purchasing any Ultraviolet "digital copies".

Don't worry the movie includes iTunes digital copy and Ultra-violet copy in the 2 special editions Blu-Ray and DVD

This was in response to the first one-star review concerning UltraViolet. This movie appears to have a code that is both iTunes Digital Copy and UltraViolet.

Amazon says: "I have researched the information and confirm it is an Ultra-Violet digital copy for BD and DVD "Hunger Games.""

Just UltraViolet? Not UltraViolet & iTunes? If it's just UltraViolet only, then I'll be buying it from Canada. That is unless LionsGate makes this optional UltraViolet by offering iTunes Digital Copy codes and/or Digital Copy discs with iTunes Digital Copy/Windows Media Player Digital Copy codes

According to Flixster's Ultraviolet Support Center, you CAN download and watch your movie offline on a Mac or PC or on an iOS or Android device. This would allow you to watch your movie on a flight or anywhere else. Wouldn't it?

I refuse to buy ANY release with Ultraviolet. iTunes here I go.

It better be iTunes enabled because Ultraviolet is a really ridiculous, cumbersome system.

According to the Wally mart page for the same product. The digital copy is comes in disc, which allows you to import it to I Tunes or Windows Media format.

"The following content was provided by the publisher.
2-Disc Blu-Ray + Digital Copy DVD"

This is the reply I received from Amazon:

"I've checked our website for the "The Hunger Games" and verified that this is a version of "Blu-ray + Digital Copy."

Thanks for letting us know about the error in the detail page for "The Hunger Games (2-Disc Blu-ray + Ultra-Violet Digital Copy)." We use many sources to build our website information, and we really appreciate knowing about any errors which find their way into our catalog. I'll notify our catalog team about this and will ask them to correct the error. "

It includes digital copies for both iTunes and UV.

Ok. Thanks, Elmo. Now that I know that LionsGate is using the Fair Use Digital Copy System (iTunes+UltraViolet), I will be buying one of the combo packs when it comes on sale. Most likely though, it will be the Blu-Ray+iTunes Digital Copy+UltraViolet that I will be buying, then I just buy the standalone Dvd. I don't need the 3-disc Blu-Ray+Bonus Blu-Ray+Exclusive Bonus Blu-Ray+iTunes Digital Copy+UltraViolet 1st Edition combo pack from Target. That one is probably going to be $45 because it's three Blu-Rays.

Thank you for posting that picture. It's really helped me decide.

The Target exclusive version is currently $26.99 on their website so I doubt it will be more than that when it's released. The packaging alone justifies paying the extra $4.

Anyone knows if the iTunes codes given with any of these are for their HD versions? Or are they just for the SD versions? Thanks!

All iTunes Digital Copies are for the SD version.

says it "WORKS with iTunes" does not say anywhere you get a iTunes code.

Well, this certainly makes things more clearer. Thanks for the info!

I'mc onfused too. The packaging implies the standard digital copy, but the amazon product name says ultraviolet. i will NOT buy this if it's UV. anyone know for sure?

I didn't realize so many people had such strong opinions about the digital copies; I rarely use them myself, pretty much just on airline flights. In any case, this pre-order comes with the Amazon Instant Video version as well, which you can watch on your iPad (iPhone app will probably follow) and, I think, Apple TV. For all you iTunes-centric folk, doesn't that kind of cover it? Or is it just a rental it comes with?

completely different. Amazon is streaming, itunes is in the cloud and works with apple TV so no attached player needed, and if you transfer it directly from the computer with itunes to ipad or iphone then you can watch it on the plane or anywhere else where no network is available. amazon requires wifi to stream the video.

Why not just rip the video yourself and skip all this nonsense for needing codes then you don't have to worry about itunes/ultraviolet or anything else.
