Download prices will be $12.88 to $19.88 on the day of the DVD release. You can choose between three resolution formats. PC Format: 640 X 480 maximum resolution, 30 fps, 1,500-1,700 kbps average bit rate, Portable Format: X 240 maximum resolution, 30 fps, 500-810 kbps average bit rate, PC & Portable: a combination of the above that requires 30% more storage.
The portable video format is not compatible with the AppleiPod video.
Because pricing is pretty close to disc pricing it is not really interesting. I like Amazon's unbox focus on short-term rental like downloads for a couple bucks better. If I go buy a full movie I want the disc.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
