Telegraph.co.uk: Film buyers in the UK will be able to download films to their computers and iPods in a new breakthrough deal between Twentieth Century Fox and Apple, it has been announced.
‘Digital Copy’ for iTunes will provide customers who buy a DVD with an additional disk – or Digital Copy of the film – allowing them to download the film straight on to their iPod, iPhone, PC, Mac or any other portable video player.
The technology, which has been available in the US for almost a year, is now being launched for British movie buyers. Fans who buy the special edition sets of DVDs will be given the free extra disc allowing them to download the film files straight on to their machine.
Purchasers will not have unrestricted use of the files – the number of times they can copy the film is strictly limited as each DVD will only transfer its iTunes Digital Copy to one iTunes library.
