They would certainly please a lot more people if they offered a choice of formats with these gifts (CD or vinyl, DVD or BluRay, etc), but I've no idea how practical it would be. I think the only time we've ever had options is when they did T-shirts as part of the Slane gift, and you could choose your preferred design and size.

A DVD??? We are in 2020 guys! Have you heard about Blu-ray? UHD 4K Blu-ray? This is ridiculous!

Christ above you can't please everyone can you! I for one am very happy and appreciative with this gift!

I think this gift is wonderful.  I'm shocked they would release EI as a subscribers gift. I am very happy.  DVD versus BluRay-I don't care.  It'll be a good picture and it will have great sound.  I st

I don’t wish to belabor the point - many of us have already said a lot on the previous two pages.

However, if there were simply the will at the corporate level, these options would be indeed be possible. Both LiveNation and Universal Music are multi-billion dollar, multinational corporations. We repeat subscribers all give them $40 (or local equivalent) a year every year here. I don’t think lack of resources can really be used as a potential explanation for lack of choices.

If however either/both are closer to the poor house than I am acknowledging, charging more for a BluRay (or whatever the deluxe version is) would be the simple solution. See - how many formats and what those formats include are already known things. It would be nice for us to know how this release (which is wonderful) is going to be rolled out when it hits the marketplace. If it is a DVD-only, fan-club-only release, then we are indeed being given a treat; however, if there will be a wider release in higher-definition formats, why can’t we order those when we renew? Why can’t the paid U2.com membership be able to obtain those, even if there were more charged in the fee? I bet very many of us would have taken advantage of that.

Well, as I said in my last post, I remain optimistic.

You just know there's gonna be a bluray edition in the shops soon after the fanclub dvd. Plus you can bet there will be a collectors edition platinum version in a box, like everything else U2 release these days.

It's just like concert tickets, you get standard tickets and then the enhanced packages that cost loads more. That's how Livenation make their money, squeezing every last penny they can out of the fans, cause they know full well

fans will buy it.

It's just the way the industry is gone now that the albums don't sell as much as they used to because of streaming etc. However I just wish Livenation would listen to fans and try to provide a better experience with the money fans pay out.

The more I think about it the more I’m convinced the show won’t be released in any other physical format and they’ll skip straight to a 4k digital only release commercially. This would be ideal because for those of us that opt for a physical item we would be getting an exclusive item and the most popular physical format as DVD’s still outsell blu Ray or 4K and for people that prefer to focus on quality they will get the very best with the digital release. There isn’t any need to release it in blu Ray as it is neither the number 1 selling physical format nor is it the best quality format and 4K DVD’s sell quite badly so they don’t need to release it physically in that format.
