Previously we reported that Warner Brothers would be releasing a two versions of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix ” for download when you purchase the DVD due to be released here in the US on December 11. PCWorld now has more on this, saying these versions will only be available on the two disc “Special Edition” DVDs, with one version for the PC, one for a portable media device. The magazine reports that to take advantage of the downloads users must have Windows Media Player 10 or above. Noting that other DVDs made the download option available by using a link on the internet, this will not be the case with the OotP DVD. Quotage:</P

“Jim Wuthrich, senior vice president of electronic sell-through for Warner Brothers, says that the studio chose to put the movie on the disc instead. “It’s because of the superior consumer experience; you don’t have to wait for the bits to be downloaded,” he says. “The transfer time is dependent only on how fast your DVD-ROM drive is. It’s not tied to your broadband speed.”

Indicating that there is only “one transfer each of the PC and portable versions” the magazine says that it should prove relatively easy to use the download options as “the portable version transfers to your PC hard drive first and then moves to your portable unit.” Finally ” Wuthrich says the portable version will work on any device that supports Windows Media digital rights management, including media players and some mobile phones.”

Guess That Book

"You can open it if you like," said Harry, "but I'll hear what it says anyway. That's a Howler."[br]"Let go of it, Petunia!" roared Uncle Vernon. "Don't touch it, it could be dangerous!"[br]"It's addressed to me," said Aunt Petunia in a shaking voice.
