Shame Digital Copy

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just got the new Blu-ray release of Shame from Fox. It includes a digital copy that says its compatible for both Windows and Mac. Doesn't make mention anymore of iTunes, but it does say for Android Market. I have a Mac and when I launched the digital copy icon in accordance with the directions, it has me pick a device with the only option being an Android phone, which I don't have. Wonder if this will be the norm going forward. I have the DVD ripping to my iTunes movie library via Handbreak as we speak. But an iTunes digital copy would have been easier and preferred (like all the other Fox titles before it).

Are you sure it's not iTunes also? If you have iTunes open and insert the disc (iTunes must be open) it should redirect iTunes to The Fox Shame page and have a box to enter the code. Don't click on the icon like the directions say.

For instance Rise of the Planet of the Apes has these same (incomplete) instructions but it does open the RotPotA enter code screen when iTunes is open (Mac).

I had iTunes open and tried it several times. It doesn't seem to even notice that there is a disc inserted. I couldn't find anyway to get a digital copy into iTunes short of burning my own copy of the DVD.

According to this:

the Shame digital copy is not available for iTunes since Apple does not allow NC17-rated content in the iTunes store.

Well, Apple's own FAQ says that they don't accept NC-17-rated movies:

http://www.apple.com/itunes/content-...movie-faq.html
"The iTunes Store does not accept adult films, films rated NC-17 or higher, or unrated films that could have received those ratings. "

I don't know why they apparently made an exception for Shame. Let's hope they are changing this stupid policy.

There are tons of 'unrated' films on the iTunes store, I guess it depends on the content. Adult film often means simply porn, and yes iTunes won't accept porn... Shame is not an 'adult film', yet it's definitely a film for adults and mature people. It's also available on the canadian itunes store, under the 18A rating for 'nudity, sexual content and disturbing content'. The Human Centipede I and II are also available, they are unrated. Not sure which is the most disturbing of the lot though.

If you read closely, the FAQ says clearly that NC-17-rated movies are not accepted, in addition to "adult films". I have never seen an NC-17 movie on iTunes, except now Shame. Thus my hope that this indicates that are loosening up this silly policy. A film like this should not be treated the same as porn.

Canada is a different world when it comes to explicit content in movies.

I did read closely, hence I can't find any other explanation that they must accept movies depending on their content and I'm not just talking about 'graphic content'. Otherwise it wouldn't have ended up on the store.
