    Well, there are plenty of people, both here and in general, who still enjoy CDs and DVDs. Your personally finding them “insignificant” doesn’t make such a belief an objective fact. (Also, I don’t quite understand why you are using your love of vinyl to impugn DVDs, since vinyl doesn’t have a visual component.)

    However, I have often wondered why audio gifts aren’t offered in multiple physical formats. If a choice were offered in advance (for example, at the time of one’s membership renewal) for what format one prefers if a gift in any given year is an audio one, more subscribers’ wishes could be satisfied. You also wouldn’t get mass mailings of CDs to those who would prefer vinyl, or of vinyl to those who prefer CDs (the latter especially being a large (and avoidable) waste of resources, both in cost of materials and in postage - it’s much more expensive to mail vinyl than CDs, and doubly a waste for those who have no interest in vinyl).

    On the whole, the site has been good in alternating formats from year to year. I still hope for a day that one’s preferences for formats will be satisfied in a more targeted way...maybe someday... 🤷‍♂️ 

     

     

    We've had CDs, vinyl, books and prints. I think we need a VHS and compact cassette just to complete our collections🙃😉

  2. Thanks for the reply Mich, yes Vertigo, will try the form again.

    Update-- tried again but get message saying not answering email or phone, here's a screen grab

    Update --- got an email saying my form was received and then another today saying that a replacement has shipped. So the form works, even though it says it doesn't 🤔 Thank you for your help 👍

    One more flag for the Blu-ray! It makes absolutely no sense to make this available in DVD when we subscribers are actually interested in content. The only reason I can think of for somebody to be happy with whatever the format/quality as long as it is and exclusive release is to make a profit by reselling it, which certainly is not the spirit of membership.

    The video (and audio!) quality of a DVD release is definitely inferior to the one in Blu-ray or even streaming, and anyone who's been watching audiovisual media in the past 10 years can definitely notice that. As a subscriber, I'm here because of the exceptional content (and pre-sales ;) ), so its quality is extremely important.

     

    Don't think you can generalise like that.  I'm happy with whatever the format is because I am not overly fussed about slightly better quality (it's a personal thing); but I won't be selling my copy (I will be keeping it and playing it). 

    Perhaps DVD was selected as a media because it is readily playable format across different devices old n new?  As not everyone has access to the latest hardware that could play Bluray?  So it's fairer for everyone.

    I too hope/ agree that a different version is not made available commercially like 'From the Sky Down' (box set v's commercial release of movie) or the available nowhere else U2 map being given away free during RSD.

    Whats going on with the shipping? The reason I ask U2 shop said item shipped 2 weeks ago, UPS contacted and cant provide tracking and U2 shop message says it could take 6 to 8 weeks to reach the UK - is Bono delivering it by foot to me?!  Joking apart please could you advise what is happening?  Thanks

     

    Ps if the CD is made in EU why is it being shipped to the USA to be sent back to the EU - not very good ref carbon footprint😯

    Yippee its arrived, thank you, love it

    Just to check; has everyone received their confirmation email that their gifts have been shipped or not yet? I have not and am starting to get worried...

    Hi there, I haven't received any email yet about my resub CD being shipped either:rolleyes:

  9. I don't like cut n paste thank yous so ... just a quick note  to 'say in person'  ... thank you very much to EVERYONE who supported this year's t-shirt day.  It was really great the amount of response we got - pretty much right round the planet.  Whilst we live on the internet, I still find things like this amazing.

    We must do it again next year, fingers crossed.

    So once again many thanks to you and you and you and you and you and you....
