...for some reason, ultraviolet never makes it to Canada, here we always get the 'standard' digital copies that are included on the dvd (or sometimes downloadable as well)... I have no idea why and I'm feeling too lazy to google right now
Disney is also not in bed with Ultraviolet. They still include the physical disc with older Digital Copy.
Anyone remember when Ultraviolet was first introduced, the Ultraviolet copy from the movies you bought only has limited time to be viewable on the online? After a while, you have to pay to keep your Ultraviolet movies.
What I hate about Digital Copy or Ultraviolet is you are forced to pay for a license even you don't plan to activate it. To Hollywood, it costs them nothing because there is no physical disc and if buyers don't activate the Ultraviolet, it's the buyers lost because they still have to pay for a license. If the limited time to view the Ultraviolet is still true, then the buyers has to pay extra fee to keep their movies around.
Is it a requirement in Canada to include the Digital Copy on a physical disc? I bought a few movies that came from Canada and never saw any that doesn't include a disc for the Digital Copy. I think it's the same for other countries like UK because a movie that I bought from UK has older Digital Copy but US edition has Ultraviolet.
