Blu-ray Disc managed copy
Engadget has footage of managed copy working on a Pioneer Blu-ray Disc player at CEDIA Expo.
The video shows the Pioneer rep demonstrating copying a digital copy of Disney’s Bolt from a Blu-ray to the player’s hard drive, and playing it back. It also shows a series of other titles available for download or streaming by credit card purchase. The credit card information is on file and you enter a PIN to access the shopping cart. They didn’t mention what service the downloads were sourced from.
This proves it’s possible, so let’s hope next year the studios will all get on board and figure out a way to add this to all the titles released over the last three years.
