No. That's for the U2 Live Songs of iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE.downloads, that you may already have...

Will this DVD eventually get a public general release so I'm able to buy it from Amazon?

totally unknown... The only thing known for certain is that this DVD will be this year's gift.

    Yeah but then some people get a better quality than others just because  BluRAYS are cheaper in their part of the world......? So not everybody will get the same gift...... It's beginning to sound like when they gave us the Vinyls, which I never played cause I didn't want to pay 300 dollars for a good Pick_Up(turn table).......I Just listened to the downloadable WAVs like any sane  and clear-Minded person ....

 

......... You gotta be sure all fans are enjoying the same advantages otherwise I suggest they charge 60 or 70 bucks for the ones who want to receive BluRay  versions of the concert !!!!

 

I Have Been Buying a LOT of Albums on BandCamp lately and the fact they let me choose to have the CD and/or WAV (or any format you want) made me fall in love with that site..... WHY can't U2dotcom do the same with our gifts ?????

I think all he is saying is give us a choice, just as when they release these in the stores. A lot of time you have the option to buy dvd or blue ray versions.  So some of us that have a blue ray with a 4K TV can pay a little more for better quality. That way someone with your situation  can choice the dvd option. I would agree to having a digital option available for both choices.

Honestly? Seems a bit half-hearted to me. If the full show does gets a general public release someone will probably rip the whole thing and upload it to YouTube (already happened with the abbreviated broadcast tracks) so a bit impractical too.

Just remembered  the Paris 2015 gig was broadcast at Christmas 2015 before being released physically in the summer of 2016.

It really does appear that the Berlin show will not go on general release - how could they possibly justify the gift otherwise?

The DVD/Blu Ray really should be in the shops....an audio CD of the show would have made a great gift..Strange decision.

Clicks into YouTube.  See's countless videos of the 2018 shows filmed by people on their cellphones in 4K.  Clicks into U2.com and they are offering the very same hi tech show in standard definition on a format from the 90s.  Rubs eyes to see if it's all a joke.  It's not.

Just adding my 2 cents that DVD is not really acceptable in 2020.  U2 uses the most cutting edge tech around for their video screens during their shows - the JT screen is almost 8K for crying out loud! - but somehow we’re supposed to be happy with 480p for our home video release.  Pretty disappointing.

Decent gift, however DVD format? Not even in HD, that’s a joke. Also if it gets released commercially, which it probably will, this years subscription has no value whatsoever and £40 is daylight robbery and I am a fool for resubscribing.

 

edit: and you can’t use the argument that not everyone has a blu Ray player - I don’t have a record player yet we’ve had vinyl gifts about 3 times out of the last 5!

I just renew my subscription. Something strange occurred: I live in Sofia, Bulgaria and my postal code is 1404. So, it must be: "Sofia 1404". And it always was like that in my previous resubscriptions. But now it automatically changed and my delivery address for the new gift is "Sofia 23 1404". If I look in "My account" on my profile - it is still "Sofia 1404". Anybody else have the same problem?

YES BUT... Buuuut, At least we Got the Downloads of the songs Here on the site.....So those who don't have turn tables (for the times they gave us Vinyls) and blu-rays (in the event they would give them out)  - (like me) were/would be  satisfied that they COULD actually play the songs !!!!!!!  I will use this argument forever with those who are shouting for BluRay !!!! Unless they also give us HQ download of the Concert ! And another one, if Blu_Ray and No download then charge extra cash for Blu_Ray.....

This being said, I'm content with the DVD, and I truly hope this will be the ONLY release of the concert, otherwise if they are deciding for HQ, they should find a way to make it as a download here !!!

  There, fixed, NOW IT WORKS !!!!

Last week something strange happened to me too. I put 2 addresses, one for payment, and other for shipping, I don't know why the delivery address is my payment address now. I have the payment address in both sides. My payment address is in Colombia and my shipping address is in EEUU. If I look in "My account" on my profile I have the correct shipping address. I used "Contact Us" form on the help page twice, but they don't answer me yet.

Will feel very wrong watching a DVD in 2020 - if this is the only release of it, i'm not as fussed but if it does get released to the general public, my sub gift is worthless because I will end up buying blu-ray...haven't watched a standard DVD for over 5 years, only DVDs I watch are U2 gigs... :(

Maybe try that again, just in case for some reason it didn't get through

Hi, I'm having difficulty getting a reply from the U2 subscription servicing team? Can't renew my subscription at the $40 rate even though I was within timescale, as it only offers the $50 or $85 option. Contacted them 4 times now but I have not received a relpy. The subscription period appears to have bee extended but it still will not give me the $40 option. Anyone else have the same issue?

Any idea how I can sort this?

Cheers

Eoin

Dean, Just tried, and when I sign in it has the subscription bar at the top to re-subscribe but every time I try it, it comes up with the $50 and $85 options. Nothing else.

Completely frustrating, and the help service have never replied to my emails after 4 attempts!!

Arghhhh

Thanks anyway.

That’s annoying Eoin, just thought it was worth a try because I’ve been signed out before without realising, think it does it automatically after so long. Hope someone gets back to you from the u2.com team soon, seems to be a common theme lately that people’s issues are being ignored. I know a few people that have asked about the 2019 gift they still haven’t received and haven’t had a response as you will probably read around the threads as well. I think they’re waiting to see how many 2020 subscribers are going to chose the $75 option which comes with the 2019 gift and then they can produce them at once which is probably a cost saving tactic but not really acceptable for people who have waited this long. Anyway sorry to go off on a tangent hope you get your issue sorted soon.
