How To Hide Purchased Music In Itunes

At some point, we’ve all bought albums that we’re ashamed to admit to our friends and family. Whether it’s the latest Bieber “classic” or something altogether more Britney-esque, I know you’ve got something embarrassing lurking in your iTunes library.

Joking aside, it’s really useful to be able to hide music you’ve purchased. Music styles change, your favorite genres wax and wane, and you get bored of listening to the same albums on repeat.

Luckily, not only does Apple’s iTunes let you hide the music you’ve bought, but it also allows you to conceal movies, TV shows, apps, and any other content you’ve purchased through the store. In this article, we’ll explain the process.

7 Essential Amazon Music Unlimited Tips To Help Get You Started

So you’ve looked into Amazon Music Unlimited, you know it’s not the same as Amazon Prime Music, and you think it’s better than Spotify and Apple Music.

If you’ve gone ahead and activated a 30-day free trial for Amazon Music Unlimited but aren’t quite sure what to do next, don’t feel bad. Amazon Music’s interface is far from intuitive, and Music Unlimited’s best features can be hard to find.

To help you get more out of your Amazon Music Unlimited subscription, there are a number of tips and tricks you should start making use of straight away…

1. Download Songs for Offline Playback

Like all of the best music streaming services, Amazon Music Unlimited does allow you to download songs for offline playback—but only when using the Android or iOS apps. This means offline playback isn’t available on the Windows, Mac, or Web apps.

There’s no limit to how many songs you can download this way. However, downloaded songs are protected and can only be played through Amazon Music, meaning they can’t be exported to external storage or transferred to any other devices.

Amazon Music Unlimited tips - amazon music offline playback

To download for offline playback, just go to any song, album, or playlist and open its “More Options” menu (the three dots), then select Download.

To see all of your downloaded music, go to My Music > Offline Music on Android or go to Settings > Offline Music Mode on iOS. On either platform, you can also go to Recents > Downloaded to see only recently downloaded songs.

2. Change Bitrate to Reduce Data Usage

No matter which platform you’re using to play Amazon music, you can alter the streaming quality and reduce the amount of data used by the service. This is a crucial tip to know when you’re listening on 4G LTE, or if your ISP enforces a monthly data cap.

Amazon Music Unlimited tips - amazon music audio quality

In the web player, click your account name at the bottom left, then click Streaming audio quality. By default it’s set to Auto, but we recommend setting it to Low when you need to conserve data and High when you don’t.

In the desktop app, click your account name at the top-right, then click Preferences > Advanced > Audio Quality. In the mobile apps, tap the gear icon in the top-left, then select Streaming Quality. Again, choose between High or Low depending on whether you need to conserve data or not.

If you want to get technical, we’re talking about High and Low bitrates. You can learn more about this in our article detailing how audio files are compressed and optimized.

3. Discover New Music

The search box will be your most used feature in Amazon Music Unlimited, but searches can be limiting when it comes to discovering new music because you can’t exactly search for something you aren’t aware of, right?

Fortunately, Music Unlimited can help you with that in a few ways:

  • More Like This: On the web player, go to any album, click the more button, and select Customers also listened to to get recommendations for similar music that others like. You can also go to any artist page and scroll down to the bottom for Related Artists, which works on any platform, not just the web player.
  • New Releases: Go to Browse > Home > New Releases. Here you’ll find all newly released songs, albums, and playlists, which you can filter by genre. Check this once a day to never miss interesting new music.
  • Top Charts: Go to Browse > Home > Charts. Here you’ll find the most popular songs, albums, and playlists being played on Amazon Music, which you can filter by genre.
  • Recommended: Go to Browse > Recommended. Based entirely on your recent listening patterns, Amazon Music will suggest songs, albums, playlists, and stations that you may enjoy.
  • Stations and Playlists: Stations and Playlists are the best music discovery tools, which you can access by going to Browse > Stations and Browse > Playlists. Scroll all the way to the bottom to explore by genres. Or you can start an artist-based station by going to any artist page, clicking the more button, then selecting Start [artist name] station.

4. Control Playback With Echo Voice Commands

All Echo devices have dozens of music-related voice commands, but here are the most useful ones compatible with Amazon Music Unlimited and worth keeping in mind:

  • “Alexa, play [song title or artist name or album name].”
  • “Alexa, play [emotion or genre or holiday] music.”
  • “Alexa, play brand new music.”
  • “Alexa, play the song that goes [lyrics].”
  • “Alexa, play [station name].”
  • “Alexa, play new [genre].”
  • “Alexa, play some music.” (Anything from your library)
  • “Alexa, play a playlist.” (Any playlist in your library)
  • “Alexa, play the song of the day.”
  • “Alexa, what’s playing right now?”
  • “Alexa, who sings this song?”
  • “Alexa, skip this song.”
  • “Alexa, I’m tired of this song.”

5. Save Money With a Special Plan

Amazon Music Unlimited tips - amazon music pricing

Amazon Music Unlimited costs $9.99/mo for regular users and $7.99/mo for Prime members—and to be frank, it’s hard to recommend Music Unlimited at full price. You can get much more for the same price with Spotify or Google Play Music.

But you may be eligible for some steep discounts, in which case Music Unlimited could very well be worth the price tag:

  • The Family plan is the cheapest way to get Music Unlimited, but requires finding five others who are willing to split the bill. If you can do that, you’ll only have to pay $2.50/mo (or $2.00/mo if registered for by a Prime member).
  • The Echo plan is for users who only want to access Music Unlimited with a single Echo device, which is available for a highly discounted $3.99/mo.
  • The Student plan is a special discount for students who can prove enrollment at an eligible educational institution, available for $4.99/mo. Sign up for the Amazon Music Unlimited student discount.
  • The Annual plan is a discount for Prime members who pay for one year up front, which comes out to about $6.58/mo.

6. Migrate Your Music Between Countries

Amazon Music Unlimited tips - amazon music countries

If you ever move to another country and need to start using the local version of Amazon (e.g. Amazon.de), then you may run into a snag: all of the music you saved is stored on your Amazon.com account.

Here’s how to re-associate your account and migrate your music:

  1. Open the web player for Amazon Music.
  2. In the left sidebar, click your account name at the bottom, then select Your Amazon Music settings.
  3. In the new page that opens, scroll all the way to the bottom under the “Your Country Settings” section and click on View music library country settings.
  4. It’ll tell you which country your account is currently associated with, and allow you to change it by clicking Change.

As of this writing, transfers are only supported to the U.K., Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy, and Spain.

7. Share Links to Songs, Albums, Playlists, Stations

Amazon Music Unlimited tips - amazon music shares

With a single click or tap, Amazon will generate URLs that you can use to share links to specific songs, albums, or playlists that you want to bring to someone else’s attention.

In the web and desktop players, just click the Share icon, then click Copy Link. In the mobile apps, tap the More button at the top right, then tap Share Song, Share Album, Share Playlist, or Share Station (depending on the context), then Copy to clipboard.

You can also select </> Embed to embed a special Amazon Music player on your website, allowing others to hear a sample of the song(s) you’ve embedded.

Note that the recipient needs to be an active Prime Music or Amazon Music Unlimited subscriber in order to listen to anything you share, but they can still see everything even if they aren’t a subscriber, including full track listings, track details, album art, etc.

If you don’t have Amazon Music Unlimited (your questions, answered) yet, you can get a risk-free taste by signing up for a 30-day free trial. If you find the service unsatisfactory, you can cancel your subscription before it ends to avoid being charged when it renews.

How Twitter Is Changing How You Watch Sports

Twitter recently made an historic announcement when it teamed up with the NFL (National Football League). Social media standout Twitter and one of the most popular sporting leagues in the world have just joined together to offer live streaming of 10 Thursday Night Football (TNF) games, offering fans a chance to catch the games right from within Twitter’s timeline.

Roger Goodell, the NFL’s commissioner, made the announcement on his Twitter page, tweeting:

Goodell continued, saying:

“Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football. There is a massive amount of NFL-related conversation happening on Twitter during our games and tapping into that audience… will ensure Thursday Night Football is seen on an unprecedented number of platforms this season.”

Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO, also commented on the experience, tweeting:

He added, “This is about transforming the fan experience with football”.

And it will do just that. Fans from all over the world (or at least everywhere Twitter is accessible) will be able to freely view these NFL games and discuss the latest plays with their fellow football fans. It will be an experience that is sure to please even the most casual NFL fan, whether living abroad or in the U.S.

You don’t even have to be a Twitter expert to watch the games. Apparently, fans of the sport who aren’t logged in will be able to watch the games, which provides even more people the opportunity to tune into the action.

Facebook, Yahoo, Amazon, and Verizon were all reported to have had interest in streaming the NFL games, but it appears now that Twitter beat them out. Some have said Twitter got a bargain, when it paid around $10 million to acquire the rights. Facebook and others had reportedly offered a lot more.

How the Move Benefits Both Parties

The move can be seen as a marriage of interests, as Twitter will get a good chance at growing its userbase and the NFL will get a shot at growing its international viewership.

Though there have been plenty of articles saying that the move won’t help the NFL or Twitter in terms of finances, that has yet to be seen. Analysts have also said Twitter won’t be able to grow its fanbase, but that too has yet to be seen.

In any case, the news has excited many people. And some people have taken to Twitter to show their excitement:

This lady is also happy, but mainly for her dad:

For me, I find the move exciting. As a person not living in the U.S. but interested in the NFL, the games being streamed on Twitter give me the opportunity to easily watch a game without paying, and saves me time from searching for the best stream, a move that often leaves me watching grainy footage.

It hasn’t been clarified how the service will be streamed or what to expect, but we think it’s fair to assume that Twitter will invest in the appropriate services needed and offer the best possible experience.

Is it Time to Cut the Cord?

What does this mean for the future of television?

A couple of things. It means that traditional TV execs may be forced to make moves to appeal to the demands of consumers who have expressed their desire to cut the cord and watch more freely. It also means that people are willing to cut their cable cord.

In a recent survey of 59 people, respondents felt streaming services offered more TV and movie choices overall at a lower price than traditional services.

Another survey of nearly 2,000 people in the UK showed what The Telegraph said was the death of traditional TV viewing.

The death of traditional TV viewing has been a hot topic for the past few years.

These surveys show that people are less interested in traditional TV viewing and are ready to cancel their cable, and start viewing movies, shows, and sports more freely and across multiple devices.

And although Anthony Noto is the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Twitter and was a previous CFO of the NFL, he made a comment to Bloomberg that is noteworthy, saying:

“This is one element of a much broader strategy to provide the next generation of real-time content”.

Why is his comment important? It represents the flexibility by big time networks to increase viewership and invest in other means to show their product, and not just with cable companies.

Last year, Yahoo! delivered a free, global live stream of the matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills who played in London’s Wembley Stadium. According to the NFL, people in 185 countries viewed the match, and 33 percent of the total viewers were of an international audience.

Those numbers are a big deal, especially considering that the NFL has been trying to break into the international market for some time.

The National Football League most recently announced three games to be played in London next year:

  • Jacksonville Jaguars host the Indianapolis Colts on 2 October 2016 at Wembley Stadium
  • New York Giants play the Los Angeles Rams on 23 October at Twickenham Stadium
  • Washington Redskins compete against the Cincinnati Bengals on 30 October at Wembley

More Ways to Watch

Yahoo has also paired with the National Hockey League (NHL) to freely show a “Game of the Day,” is now streaming select Major League Baseball (MLB) games, and has recently struck a deal with the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) to show select events. It seems more and more professional sporting leagues are jumping on board to freely offer their content, which can only be good news for sports fans across the globe.

And the best news: the games are easily accessible. The NFL game on Yahoo last year could easily be viewed on computer or smartphone, and it can be expected that it will remain easily available now and in the future.

To watch the games broadcast on Yahoo: download the Yahoo Sports app on your iPhone or Android device.

How the Move Benefits You

If cable companies aren’t worried yet, they should be. Twitter’s move to broadcast the NFL and Yahoo’s commitment to air major league sports are just more nails in the coffin of traditional TV.

With more options, people are more prone to chose which ones benefits them. And watching free video across multiple devices is one option that traditional TV networks have proven not able to match (or even willing to explore).

If the networks can’t keep up, even more options will become available. Freedom of choice is what people increasingly want, and traditional TV just cannot compete on that score.

What do you think of the announcement made by Twitter and the NFL? Will this change the way you view Thursday Night Football? Do you think this announcement changes the future of streaming TV, especially when it comes to sports?

Why You Should Buy A Kindle, Even If You Love Real Books

If you ever step foot into my bedroom (as unlikely as that may be), the first thing you’ll notice are the books. Suffice to say I have a lot of books. In fact, I have so many that my dusty shelves creak under the weight of dog-eared paperback novels and thick computer science textbooks. They’re awkwardly piled upon each other, and the overflow is piled up on my floor. I’ve long since given up on organizing them in any sort of coherent manner.

I like books – specifically paperback books. For the longest time, I’ve been adamant that I would never get an Amazon Kindle, or for that matter, any kind of e-reader. Old-school printed books, I’d insist, are the only way to appreciate the written word. Books never run out of power. Once I’ve finished with a book, I can share it with a friend or donate it to a thrift store, as books aren’t encased in a tight layer of DRM (Digital Rights Management).

And yet, earlier this month, I was sat by my front door, eagerly waiting for a courier to deliver my brand-new Kindle Paperwhite (UK). Like thousands of other people across the world, I was tempted by the steep reductions Amazon offered in its annual Prime Day sale.

It was an impulse buy, but one I’m not regretting. In just one week, I’ve been convinced that the Kindle is the future of reading. Maybe you, like me, had serious doubts about the nature of electronic books. But you should rid yourself of them immediately. The Amazon Kindle offers everything you love about books, but with a few added extras that justify the whole expense.

Using a Kindle Is a Delight

Forget the Kindle Store. Forget the sheer convenience of having thousands of books on a device no thicker than a pencil. Forget the robust, well-built hardware, which survives even the most careless of users. The main reason why you should buy a Kindle is because it’s awesome to actually use.

NovelPage

Front and center of the reading experience is the delightful E-Ink screen, which can conservatively be described as a masterpiece of engineering. It looks just like printed words on a sheet of paper. Unlike many computer and tablet screens, it is readable in the sun. The latest version of Amazon’s e-ink screens refreshes almost immediately, so there’s little to no lag. This was a problem in earlier models. The Kindle can run for weeks on end (the Kindle Oasis lasts for months), whilst slowly sipping electricity.

Moreover, unlike old-school, dead-tree books, you don’t have to worry about bent pages, or bookmarks falling out. You don’t have to worry about accidentally knocking them from your bedside table and losing your place.

You can also highlight and share passages, without the pang of guilt you feel when you deface an otherwise pristine book. You can also see passages other people have highlighted, which I’ve found brings my attention to passages I’d have otherwise skipped straight past.

Highlight

This winning combination has resulted in me reading more books than I otherwise would. In the past week, I’ve devoured titles by Paul Carr and Daniel “Fake Steve Jobs” Lyons, and I’m halfway through an especially weighty O’Reilly title on big data. Previously, I’d read perhaps two books a month, maximum. Now, I can’t stop reading.

The Kindle Is Perfect For Night Owls

I’ve got a particular fondness for the Kindle Paperwhite. That’s because I spend a lot of time flying red-eyes from the U.S. to the UK, and vice-versa. Like most people, I can’t sleep on flights, especially when sat in the cramped and uncomfortable confines of coach class. During these flights, I’m quite conscious of the fact that the people near me are probably trying to get some rest. As a result, I’m reluctant to delve through my bag to find a book, or to switch on the reading light.

But the next time I head overseas, I won’t need to turn on an overhead light to read a book on my Kindle Paperwhite. It has four tiny LEDs buried underneath its black plastic bezel, which can be adjusted depending on the amount of illumination required. If I finish my book, or get bored of it and want to read another one, I can just switch to another one cached on its internal storage.

Light

Even better, because these LEDs emit natural-looking white light and they aren’t shining directly into my face, I can read in bed without risking my Kindle affecting my sleep.

I Can Still Impulse Buy Books

One of my favorite things in the world is going into a book store – be it Waterstones in the UK, or Barnes and Noble in the United States – and exploring. I love wandering the aisles, finding books in the sale, and blurring the lines between “browsing” and “loitering

Having a Kindle hasn’t stopped me from doing that. I’ve slowly built a collection of titles on my Kindle that I “totally intend to read one day“. I just haven’t had to head to the book store, or wait for an Amazon courier to drop them off.

Library

The Kindle Store is where you download books. In my experience, it’s a bit of a mixed bag, but for this article we’ll focus on the positives.

For starters, it has more books than you could possibly hope to read in your lifetime – just shy of 5 million, which is insane. Titles are delivered in seconds, and if you pay extra for one of the 3G-enabled Kindles, you don’t even have to be connected to WiFi. You could be on a beach somewhere exotic, sipping a frosty pina colada, and you would still get your books delivered to your device.

Then there are the deals. Every day, Amazon sells a range of top-tier novels and non-fiction books at knockdown prices. Some are pretty hard to resist.

eBookSales

Some cost just $2. Others cost a tiny bit more, but are still well below the market price of the book itself.

Goodreads Makes Your Kindle Social

In 2013, Amazon acquired the book-based social network, Goodreads, for an undisclosed sum. While this was initially quite controversial within the Goodreads community, Amazon has largely had a hands-off approach to running the site. The only thing that has changed is that Amazon is slowly integrating support for it into its Kindles.

GoodReadsForKindle

Provided you buy your Kindle in the U.S., Canada, Australia, or the UK, you can now see what your friends are reading, and rate the books you’ve just read without ever having to leave your device. You can even share passages you think are interesting, or meaningful, and see recommendations based on stuff you’ve previously rated or purchased.

This is a huge plus for me, as Goodreads has always seemed to be more hassle than it’s worth. If I wanted to share a snippet from a book, I’d just take a picture on my phone and post it to Twitter. But now I can easily contribute to this 40 million-strong community of bibliophiles.

Just Buy a Kindle Already

The Kindle isn’t perfect, but I personally feel the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages. And for the majority of people, the Kindle is the ideal way to read books in this day and age.

Reading books on the Kindle Paperwhite is an absolute delight, and its low physical footprint, long battery life, and large storage capacity make it among the most convenient ways to enjoy the written word.

So, what are you waiting for, just buy one already. I did, and I’m so glad I did.

Are you a Kindle convert? Or do you remain a skeptic, determined to keep reading real books until they prize them from your vice-like grip? Please let us know your thoughts about the Kindle in the comments below!

How To Download Spotify Songs To Play Offline

Music streaming services aren’t perfect, and Spotify is no exception. Any long-time Spotify user knows the company is famous for stripping popular features out of its app. But that isn’t even the elephant in the room.

The biggest problem is offline listening. How do you access your songs when you don’t have an internet connection? Thankfully, Spotify provides a way to download songs onto your device so you can play them at any time, anywhere.

How to Download Spotify Songs to Play Offline

If you want to download songs from Spotify onto your mobile device, just follow the simple step-by-step instructions below.

  1. Open the Spotify app on your mobile device.
  2. Navigate to the artist, song, album, or playlist that you want to download.
  3. Flick the download toggle (below the artwork) into the On position.
  4. Wait for the song to download.
  5. Verify the content has successfully downloaded by looking for a small green circle next to the music in question.

How to Download Spotify Songs to Play Offline spotify download

Downloading Spotify songs to listen to when offline has some caveats:

Firstly, you need to be a premium member. A premium membership costs $9.99 for an individual license or $14.99 for a family plan. Family plans cover up to six users.

Secondly, you can only download a maximum of 3,333 songs per device on up to three devices. Many users have complained about the restriction, but it’s out of Spotify’s control. The record labels are making that decision. Regardless, 3,333 songs is approximately nine days of continuous music, so you should be fine.

Finally, you need to go online at least once every 30 days. Failure to do so will render your offline songs inaccessible.

How To Prevent Your Roku Theme From Changing On Its Own

If you’re a frequent Roku user, you might be familiar with your theme changing suddenly, without any prompting from you. Every now and then the theme will change, and suddenly your TV will be taken over by a new film or sports event promotion.

If you prefer to stick with a standard theme, there’s an easy fix for this.

Pull up your Roku menu and go to Settings > Themes > Custom Settings. You will see an option for Featured Themes, which you should make sure is set to off. This will stop your Roku theme from automatically changing.

If you’re doing this right after your theme was automatically changed, you’re going to have to manually go in and revert your theme to its original state.

Custom Roku Themes

If you’re a fan of custom themes, you can actually select one from a small collection of custom themes for your Roku. There are two ways you can add custom themes.

You can pull up the Roku menu and go to Streaming Channels, where you can search for themes and install them the way you would a new channel. Or you can go to Settings > Themes and the last item at the bottom of your list of themes should be Get more themes.

You can remove themes by going to your theme list, hovering over the theme and hitting the Options (*) button to pull up the menu.

It’s worth noting only three of the themes are free with prices for the rest ranging from $0.99 to $2.99 per theme. To see how Roku custom themes work, check out the video below:

Star Wars: The Force Awakens… To Buy Or Not To Buy?

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the most anticipated movie of 2015, had some high expectations to live up to. For most fans, director J.J. Abrams managed to give them a new hope (almost literally) for future episodes in the saga.

Disney, the producers of the movie, has now launched the Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD versions of the movie, ready to purchase for people who either missed it in cinemas or who want to rewatch it again and again. But is there enough new stuff included to warrant purchasing your own copy of The Force Awakens? Or should you skip this particular purchase? Let’s find out…

What’s New With This Release?

As with most major home releases, the Blu-ray packs in a few deleted scenes from the theatrical release. That’s right, Abrams and friends have added previously unseen footage, which includes how Han Solo figures out Finn is lying to him when they first meet!

Unfortunately for fans, there is no director’s or actors’ commentaries included in the package. Instead, you get a behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the film, which goes in-depth into the characters (providing previously unexplained nuances about them), the brainstorming process between the filmmakers, and interviews.

Along with this documentary, you get peeks into how composer John Williams scored the movie, how the creatures in the new movie were made, the digital effects used in the film, and an in-depth look at the climatic snow battle between Rey and Kylo Ren.

Almost everything about Star Wars goes viral, of course, but the first table read photo really made the film more than a concept for fans everywhere. Seeing these actors, both old and new, with scripts in their hand got the adrenaline pumping. And now, with this release, you can hear from the cast members about their memory of that epic first meet to read the movie’s script.

And of course, no discussion about The Force Awakens would be complete without talking about the little robot who stole several scenes, along with everyone’s hearts. BB-8, the astromech droid, has already been turned into a high-tech toy you can buy, but we now get to hear the filmmakers talk about their vision for this new member of the Star Wars family and how they made him a fan favorite.

Where to Buy The Force Awakens

That’s a whole lot of extra juice packed into these discs and downloads. Not to mention the fact that you can watch the whole movie over and over, and maybe even catch Star Wars mistakes you’ve never spotted before. So where can you buy the latest Star Wars film and how much does it cost?

DVD ($19.99): Target, Walmart, Toys’R’Us

The Blu-ray pack seems the best of the options available, especially since you get a Digital HD coupon with it which can be redeemed at the applicable service. According to the official Blu-ray information, this means you get a digital copy of the film on iTunes or Google Play, which should satisfy most buyers.

In case your country isn’t supported yet and you can’t buy the digital version, you could just use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) to grab it. We also have guides on accessing region-blocked media on Android devices as well as iPads and iPhones.

But Should You Buy It?

While it’s great that you can get your Star Wars fix, pause for a moment and think whether this is really worth buying right now. There are actually a few reasons you might not want to take your wallet out just yet.

We already know that there’s a 3D Blu-ray version coming out, we just don’t know when. So if you have got yourself a 3D TV, you might want to wait it out.

This version of the Blu-ray is also limited to Full HD resolution. It doesn’t support 4K or Ultra HD TV resolutions.

2016 is the year of HDR TVs, but HDR content is still hard to come by. There’s no support for it on this Blu-ray set. We’ll probably see an Ultra HD Blu-ray set in the future. In fact, The Force Awakens was one of the first movies made in Dolby Vision, which includes technology that lets your TV recreate colors and tones exactly the way the director intended. If you want to see Abrams’ true vision of Star Wars, you’ll want to wait it out for this future version.

Finally, let’s face it, streaming media means the end of ownership. So, in reality, you don’t really need to buy a digital version of a movie as it’ll probably show up on Netflix sooner or later. If it’s the extras you want, sure, spend that money, but for the movie alone, waiting for a streaming service is the sensible option.

Another reason to pause before buying would be the eventual Star Wars mega-packs. J.J. Abrams is producing two more movies, so his trilogy would be packaged with the earlier episodes, much like the Star Wars Digital Movie Collection. If it’s just the movies that you’re interested in, then, again, the frugal way is to wait until a streaming services buys the rights to this first film, and then buy the mega-pack later.

Will You Be Buying The Force Awakens?

So, that’s everything you need to know about the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens release on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Given this information, what’s your decision? Will you be buying your own personal copy of Episode VII right now, or will you be waiting it out? Whatever your reasons, we’d love to hear them in the comments below!
