With certain pre-orders you get the option of downloading the film on August 20th.

Nope. I've got a BR player and homecinemaset and HDTV. I didn't pay that much money for all those stuff to then watch movies on a laptop with crappy speakers.

It'll be from a streaming service like Vudu.

Exactly. The WalMart pre-orders that include the download are specifically for Vudu I believe. Someone mentioned earlier about watching it from a laptop.. if you have a Smart TV or a BluRay player with SmartApps on them then Vudu is likely installed on there and you should be able to watch it in HD from these locations.

I have the DVD on pre order from Amazon, but I'm also downloading it for my Kindle. Yes, small screen, crappy speakers but it will stave off withdrawals until I get the DVD in my hot fan girl hands!

On a superficial check it seems to be US only

Re: Who's downloading this early?

I'm not doing any early downloads. As it stands I'll probably end up buying the Blu-Ray/DVD combo-pack from Target as it comes with an extra disc of extra special features. I love special features, commentary tracks especially.

I'll buy STID from iTunes on that date - no preordering necessary.

My PC screen is a TV so I could watch it on there just fine, but I think I'll wait till the bluray.
