I don't know the players here, but it seems so often that those engaged in copy protection rely on vague and misleading statements. As I write this, this is still on the site:
"Available for immediate viewing from our streaming platform. All orders will receive a special code via email to upgrade to the DVD when it becomes available."
That's the only place we can see it is a streaming product and now we're told that a DVD is only a possibility. I stay as far away as I can from copy protection.
I've been in the computer business a long time and I've seen enormous problems with activations, serial numbers, calling home etc, especially after a hard drive failure. Obviously there are times it's unavoidable e.g. Microsoft, but when there is a choice, I stay as far away as possible (and, yes, I'm fully capable of capturing a stream). I didn't even download the free trick from Magic this month do to copy protection / watermarking or whatever.
The concern with going out of business, mergers or selling is very real.
The apparently are selling a lot of them, so I guess I stand alone - not unusual, actually.
