Not long had this email from sainsbury's entertainment...

As a valued customer of Sainsbury's Entertainment website we wanted to let you know that from March 2014 our website http://www.sainsburysentertainment.co.uk/en/home.html will become completely on demand - offering music and films for downloading and films for streaming. From 28 February 2014 we will no longer accept online orders for physical products. This change is due to the rapid growth in customer appetite for on demand films, music and books.

We are aware that you have an order due from Sainsbury's Entertainment and we can assure you that we will fulfil your order.

However, we will no longer be able to accept any pre-orders for items which don't yet have a release date, or which will be released after 15 March 2014.

Sainsbury's will continue to sell DVDs, CDs, books, games and games consoles in over 1,000 stores. In addition, we are constantly expanding our Entertainment on Demand offering to bring you more films, music and books to download, or films to stream, to a range of devices.

Thank you again for shopping at Sainsbury's Entertainment.

Disappointing, I'd been using them more and more for Blu's of late. Strange decision too, Is there need for another downloads/streaming service

I guess it answers the question raised by the thread title pretty definitively

I just looked at their download app for ios

Please note that HDMI and Airplay functionality is disabled on this App.

Rubbish then.
If you really wanted to screw me up. You should have got to me earlier.

Hate this. Play gone, Sainsburys gone, soon there will only be amazon. Never ever will I pay money to purchase a digital film.
