As Nick at Gizmodo points out, it’s not likely that the download releases will be any cheaper. That said, if you’re not hung up on the packaging, getting movies as a download is obviously more convenient, and this way they’re much more timely. Given the low download limits on most Australian ISP accounts, though, it’s not a habit you’d want to indulge in too often, I suspect, unless you make a sensible match of provider and ISP (iiNet and iTunes, BigPond and BigPond Movies).
