Announcing our 2020 subscription offer : 'U2 eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE – LIVE IN BERLIN'

Recommended Posts

I have to say DVD in 2020 Of a show filmed in 4K is a real slap in a face... 

the same happened with last Coldplay video release - only dvd 

you guys may not realize it but 142minutes with possible LPCM, DD5.1 and DTS 5.1 will mean a lot of compression and quality of video will really be poor! Just check out Chicago DVD there are so many artifacts for the very same reason... I believe it (2005) was shot in HD and begs for HD release and now 2018 show in SD ... what a way to show to your fans we do not really care just give them something and grab the 40usd 

sad

I  like the idea of a video of a show as subscriber gift but I agree that DVD is really outdated.  If they were looking to cut costs maybe throw a digital code for an HD version and just send the booklet.  Still not as bad as that Duets one or whatever it was called.  I don't even want to justify its existence by looking up the correct name.......

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.

 

 

That was my point earlier. If we get this and at later date the same exact product is release in hi-definition to the general public, that will be a slap on the face to all of us that pay for the subscription. I hope U2 won't be that greedy.

I would blame LiveNation and/or Universal Music first, but I agree with your comment about the greed in general.

I hope we get clarity about the street date and formats soon. It’s the not being fully informed that is really causing the angst here. As I said earlier, these things would already be known among the higher-ups in the U2 universe; it would be quite nice if they shared now.

Still hoping for a happy ending!

I understand, and can sympathize with this reasoning.  The problem is that you didn't pay $50 for a DVD. You paid to be a member of this website/fanclub. The gift is only one part of a larger sum.  I don't understand people saying I didn't pay for this gift when they purchased something with multiple components.  U2 never says what any gift will or will not be until it is officially announced. This is what they've chosen to do this year.  It is what it is.  I can undertand being disappointed.  I can understand someone consdering if they want to keep subscribing.  I don't understand the constant barrage of attacks against the band, and this website, when things aren't as one would wish. It's the chance we take when we subscribe. One can join this website for free, still be a part of the live threads and so much more. That costs nothng yet it's expensive, and a lot of work, to maintain a website. . .

This gift is one day old and people are already deciding that they are going to have to buy the BluRay.  No you don't.  You'll have the DVD.  You want the BluRay.  There's a huge difference. It's also presuming this will be commercially released on BluRay.  From what I read, it's exclusive. There's been no indication of it being anything else. 

It's EI, from Europe, and it's the Berlin show.  I've read, numerous times, from many different sources, that this is one of the best U2 shows ever.  I don't understand why people can't enjoy it for what it is.  Thi is just how I see it..  We all possess the right to express our vews in these forums and threads..  It's part of our subscription. Your opinion has just as much validity as mine.  We wouldn't be a community if it did not. 

I'm definitely not attacking the band here. But honestly, at least in my case, the gift is what I pay $50 for. The last three tours haven't come near me, and I really can't afford to travel to see them, so unfortunately perks like pre-sale access aren't really a factor to me. Besides, does anyone expect the band to tour (in the States, at least) again this year? I subscribed for the first time last year because that 2 CD set was irresistible. And I couldn't be happier with it. But apart from the recent Joshua Tree anniversary run, every major U2 tour since ZooTV has been given a commercial video release. I own and love them all, and was really looking forward to buying this one. Why does it have to be a fan club exclusive?

I like the graphic of Bono, from behind, wth the band projected on the back of his coat.  I like it a lot.

Where's the problem in putting both formats in the book? For 40 € it should be possible!

I doubt this is a fan club exclusive. U2 makes way more money selling to the general public. So I expect a release later like it has always been. What is not clear here is if this subs gift will be the same as the future gp release. I would think so, that's why I hope the subs gift will have the same hi-def format so we don't have to pay for it twice. DVD in 2020 is just unacceptable.

Me too!! *_*
I am curious about the mail mentioned in the news... I've tried to contact the Help because I don't receive the newsletters from the site but I have no answers at the moment. I hope to find some info here...
