    If you're about to buy a special edition film from the Sky Store, such as Beauty and the Beast, don't expect the DVD version to be all-singing all-dancing....

    Forget all the "bells and whistles", the physical copy of the film is presented on DVD which not even in High Definition format!

    The digital copy is HD, but is only available while a Sky subscriber. Basically, a very expensive way to purchase altogether...

    Certainly with the current contracts the Equipment is loaned to you and they want it back if you cancel your subscription.
    I see the Blu Ray version is £9 on line, so yes £13.99 is way to much for a standard definition DVD copy.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I fear without an active subscription, the digital download is no longer available to view (and certainly requires a Sky decoder).

    I wasn't talking about the physical disc, of course.

    I may also be wrong as I haven't used the service - but isn't the digital download available on Apple/Android devices ??
    I've only used the Sky Store when I've had a free offer -and I've taken the DVD as I can make my own digital copy from it.

    Does it really say 'digital only' and nothing else, like 'download only, no burning possible'? If it does, someone might want to tell Sky that DVDs have have been digital from their beginning, so it would include DVD versions.

    Why would anyone want a dvd in 2017 anyway? Does the offer come with a betamax as well?
