New Digital & UltraViolet releases, June 11

Hansel-&-Gretel---Witch-Hunters-Blu-ray-UnratedThis week we’re separating new Digital and UltraViolet titles from Blu-ray Disc releases. So what’s the difference anyway, between these two formats well on their way to replacing physical discs? Digital Copies are typically provided on a DVD included with Blu-ray Combo editions. The file formats provided are playable on Windows Media, iTunes and other video software platforms. UltraViolet titles, although also digital files, are a different animal. When you purchase a Blu-ray Disc with an UltraViolet copy you need to first register that copy with the participating distributor. Once licensed, you can download or stream from the cloud. UltraViolet copies do expire, but you’re given a couple years after release date to register your copy.

That’s just a brief overview of the digital formats. What you’ll find confusing as a consumer is that some movies and TV shows contain both Digital and UltraViolet copies, while some titles provide only one format. It really depends on which studio is distributing the title.

Now here’s a list of the new Digital Copy and UltraViolet releases for the week of June 11, 2013.
