Fox's release of Family Guy's Star Wars parody Blue Harvest on DVD is exciting because of its inclusion of a free digital copy, so you can own both the DVD and iTunes copy — no long ripping process required, no legal bones about it.
The intrepid testers over at Gizmodo unboxed the DVD to find an extra digital copy disc and a slip with a code inside. Each can only be used once, which made testers question the complexity of something relatively easy to do — why not just give the code to enter online?
Anyway, it seems like a lot to do for a digital copy, but I like the idea that every time I buy a DVD, I have the digital version ready to go. Then again, every time I buy a DVD now, I think of the impending Blu-ray takeover and my piles of VHS tapes that landed in the goodwill bin. What about you? Do free digital copies make you excited to buy DVDs again?
