BBC unveils UltraViolet DVDs, BDs

Latest Doctor Who series to come with download copy

SANS - Survey on application security programs

The BBC has announced a set of Blu-ray Disc and DVD releases that will support the UltraViolet online video locker service.

Upcoming Doctor Who, Top Gear and David Attenborough releases will support UV to allow owners signed up to the service to stream and download versions of the discs’ content to mobile devices, computers and such.

The content will be also be made available through Flixster, the Warner Bros-owned online movie shop, the BBC indicated. Flixster has its own desktop and mobile player apps, but one of the key features of UltraViolet is the ability to play content bought from one store - or acquired freely through a disc purchase - on other UV-compliant apps.

So far, UV is largely a US affair, with the likes of Walmart/Vudu, Paramount, Warner/Flixster, Universal and Sony punter compatible content stores.

Here in the UK, Tesco, which owns the Blinkbox film store, is one of UV's supporter companies but doesn't appear keen to bring it to the UK yet. Warner and Sony have said, however, that they will be ramping up their UV efforts here later this year. Lovefilm is also a UV backer, but has yet to roll out support for the service here. ®
