Does not make any sense to me, but I have the Protoculture Collection so I’m good.  :judge:

and that’s only for the lower quality stream! Also is it a stream or the full DVD-image that you can download and burn to a DVD? Otherwise it’s pay-per-view and nobody is going to go for that.

even if they provided downloadable DVD images(can’t because of lack of internet bandwidth), what about the extras you typically get on a DVD for 4-5 episodes? There’s a reason why DVDs do well, people WANT the extras and the packaging.

$1.99/episode is too much

What are you talking about? If you download a 26-Episode series from the site, it’ll only cost $52, as opposed to a $90 complete collection set, or the $140-$210 accumulation of individual DVDs. And as I had noticed the difference between the initial DVD release, and the Complete Collection, is that ADV takes out extras that are in their first release, such as Peacemaker’s Character Collection shorts.

That’s an episode download that I can burn to DVD? In fact I’d want to be able to burn 4-5 episodes to a DVD with all the appropriate language tracks and subtitles. What about extras? My point is that the $1.99/download is satisfy the quick-fix urge, it’s not a real solution to high box-set prices.

Use the best paper writing services to write more about these episodes. I might check them out later. Don’t want to miss that.
