Wal-Mart Using Special Ink To Stop Disc-To-Digital Illegal Makers

Posted on Apr 12 2012 - 4:22am by Editorial Staff

Wal-Mart in order to prevent people from using its digital movie conversion service in order to score cheap HD movies, the company is using a special ink to mark disc that have already been converted. The company is partnering with five studios: Fox, Paramount, Sony, Universal, and Warner Brothers that let the people convert their DVDs and Blu-ray discs to get digital copies of their films from Wal-Mart’s Ultraviolet-powered digital locker known as “Disc-to-Digital”. The Disc-to-Digital is only launching with 4,000 films, the cheap price. The service costs $2 per disc to access a high-definition download or stream from a Blu-ray (or a standard-def one from a DVD), or $5 per disc to upgrade a DVD to HD.
