Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I'm hoping we have a Blu-ray player by then. A movie like this should be watched in high-def!

Honestly, we should all get the blu ray. The digital copy will play on any DVD player, and you will have the blu ray version when you catch up with the modern format. 2 birds, 1 stone.

The digital copy does not play on DVD players. Only on your computer or portable device--like an iPod.

So far, all the digital copies my brother bought lately (he has Blu-Ray and buys ALOT of movies) refer the purchaser to iTunes and provide a code to download it free. (This is to prevent it being passed around to all your friends for free, I theorize.) I would assume it would be the same for ST09.

The digital copies usually can be burned onto DVDs if part of a playlist just like any other video in iTunes, not 100% sure how that works with specific copy protected programs, however. So if your computer includes a DVD-R drive you may very well be good to go.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

As far as I know, video content received via iTunes can only be played BY iTunes. When they stripped the DRM from their music a while back it did not include video.

While I'm sure there are industrious sorts who can "crack" the videos, it's not as simple as just burning it to a DVD.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I'm thinking of buying the blu ray version of the movie. I like the blu rays better because of the sound and picture quality is better. You could say I'm hooked on blu rays dvds now, I have been since I got a PS3 last year. Blu ray dvd is all I'm buying now, I will probley up grade my regular dvd movies to blu ray, but they have to be little at a time. The blu rays are gonna cost more because of the qulity of the picture, but they are worth in the long run.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

What is with the foreign release dates of the DVD?
donners22 wrote
It's being released in Australia on 29 October.
FleetLord mentions :
Its already out in different regions like Russia.
Well I guess the illegal filesharers will have this by October 30 and the M.P.A.A. will be up in arms.

Is the Blu-ray also going to be available in these regions early?

Not surprised.
I chose to share those 2 foreign release dates here as some diehard Trekkies just may try to get an import PAL DVD before November 17 but not do anything illegal.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I am going to buy the blu-ray copy, I have a home theater with a nice HD tv at its heart. If you don't have a home theater you don't have to spend as much as I did (thousands invested) you can buy a cheep surround sound unit for around $175, a decent 42-44 inch 1080p HD TV for around $700, and a PS3 wich does everything (music player, video player, blu-ray player, video games, online content) for around $250 used, $300 slim, or $400 160gb. Over the a few months a person can acquire these things easily and it really improves ones at home movie experience.

By the way for you nay-sayers who thing HD is stupid try watching your favorite movie on blu-ray at a Best Buy or local electronics store, or perhaps your favorite sports game on HD; football for example is great on the big hd tv, it is an experience indeed that changes peoples minds about HD.

Star Trek movies are great on blu-ray, they were after all made for the big screen!

But thankfully, everyone who posts on TrekBBS is both educated and responsible. This means that they both understand the value of intellectual property, and are responsible enough not to steal the hard-earned product of many people's intense labor.

(Not to sound like your teacher or dad or anything, but as a musician who is not a superstar, spent years and thousands of dollars making an album, then talked to people who got it for nothing without realizing/caring that their enjoyment of my art without paying means extended debt for myself and collaborators, it's a bit of a "live issue" for me).

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Personally, i am chomping at the bit already for Nov 17th to come!! There are so many things i am dying to see again. The Kelvin scenes, that shot of the body in silent space during the battle with the Narada, the shuttles escaping against the fireball, the title card (freakin' thing gave me chills), and a whole host of other things.
I wish i could go to sleep and wake up on Nov 17th!!!!
