Tempting, but nope.

Beware that Microsoft has shut down TWO (2) of their entirely different music/media sales portals (PlayReady/Zune and just recently Groove) in the last decade and each time "purchases" all went bye-bye. I lost hundreds of dollars and ain't pleased. They don't give a damn about their customers and are blatant about it, their T.O.S. And "customer service" basically say "screw you." They have the right to keep your money, but you don't have the right to what you "bought."

If they were members of Movies Anywhere then this might be worth doing, since you can download on a more reliable platform like iTunes and not worry when M$ will pull the plug again.

This is the problem with DRM protected digital items. Even something like iTunes could go to a subscription model tomorrow and cut people off. At least in the case of apple i think you can download the music without DRM, so there is that. Steam has a similar problem, which is why many like their competitors.

Exactly. And since Microsoft has proven to have recently burned people twice without shame in this field, I will never trust them again.

I think movies are still provided with DRM, so there's that. Microsoft primarily sucks at the Enterprise teat so they have no problem stealing from consumers. Apple positions itself in the Consumer space, and emphasizes media in their business model. If Apple were to suddenly pull the rug on their customers their business will be in more serious trouble.

What these companies and studios are doing is training people to either get used to repeatedly losing entire libraries they have purchased, or say "screw it" and creating libraries that cannot be stolen by the places that allegedly "sell" them.

To paraphrase: "You wouldn't buy a car that the car dealer can just decide to take back and keep your money!"

sounds dangerously close to a lease, only it's a previously stated decision... left with nothing to show for all the money you've put in over the years Wink

Except with a lease you're given the option to buy and own permanently at a pro-rated cost. And then, as you said, the terms are already agreed to up front.

This would be awesome on a decent movie store. Namely iTunes or Amazon, even VUDU which I know is popular.

Wow. Never knew that. I'm glad I don't have any digital content from them. I certainly won't be buying any. Thanks for the info.

It's for this reason I've avoided digital content...that and it's sub par when compared to doing it yourself...not everyone agrees with me of course, and there are reasons we each choose our preferred content delivery... For many, creating and having a home digital streaming library with no compression means on demand and full experience at all times, with no restrictions and no fear of losing your content...
