What's with all the hate regarding UV digital downloads? It seems I'm seeing a lot of negative chatter about it on the web, and I'm trying to better understand the issue.
It seems people seem to take issue with-
- It does not work on Itunes. Does this even matter? Yes I have to download flixster but that is an easy process and I sometimes just have to be a little mindful of what movies I have that require flixster. A very minor inconvenience.
- It's only streamable. This is false. I've downloaded Crazy Stupid Love and the latest Harry Potter to both my pc and my IPAD.
They both work fine and I'm not understanding the complaints, which seem to center around the perception that WB or some other stupid studio is trying to rigidly control/limit how we use their content.
I see this as an attempt by the studios to make a format that is usable on all platforms- Windows, iOS and Android(I'm currently under the impression that the WMP/itunes digital copies we're all used to did not work on android)
What am I missing?
