This is ridiculous that can find DVD only boxset but only Blu-ray boxset included DVD and digital copy. I will never use DVDs and maybe, once or twice on an airplane might use the digital copy on my iPod, that's a big maybe though. It's stupid that I am being forced to pay for DVD and digital copy when all I want is the Blu-ray. The extra discs are nothing but a waste of space. Please release a blu-ray only boxset without the DVD/Digital Copy combo set being the only available option.
I do agree with you on this post, however they priced it just as it would be for the standard Blu-ray. Last year when season 3 was released it was $34.99 on release week, and that's how much the HBO select set is / was. It went up in price now since the week is over. I don't know how much it'll go up now. However, the main thing is I agree with you. I'll never use the DVD's and I definitely will not need the digital copies. It is a waste of resources, but since it didn't cost any extra I didn't mind.
I think it's great that HBO is doing this! The price is NOT increased, and one can always give away their DVD and digital copy to someone who will use it, or just sell it. I hope "HBO Select" is here to stay, and they release all their future blu-ray box sets like that.
