    May I ask if any of the movies in this set included digital codes?
    I'm asking because I buy movies for the assistants at my job as an impersonal, can't-take-this-the-wrong-way gift every year, usually current/popular titles because they're all in their early 20s so "classics" are wasted on 'em. They're also young enough to think the first Guardians of the Galaxy is a "classic." All of the other titles (Wonder Woman, Logan, Spider-Man Homecoming, John Wick 2, Get Out) are blu-ray/dvd/digital HD so if they want to trade with each other, wind up with 3 movies, I can't blame them. So I was wondering if this 4-pack also had UV/MA codes. I bought Gravity and Fury Road when they were new, and they were blu/dvd/digital packs too, I figure these sets don't have dvd, but maybe digital?

    Thanks in advance for any info you can share...

    Not to get all Cliff Clavin, but Black Friday really isn't about Thanksgiving per se, so much as it's "the start of the holiday shopping season," and historically/anecdotally, the period between Jan 1 and Thanksgiving is when stores are just breaking even, and the holiday shopping is their profit for the year. That's why it's Black Friday, from when accountants used ledgers and wrote expenses in red and profits in black. It's the day stores stop running in the red, and start running in the black.

    Well the main thing is that you guys down there have a history and somewhat of a tradition when it comes to "Black Friday", whereas in Canada it is a relatively new concept. Up here, "Black Friday" just seems to mean "let's have a sale" like any other sale day or week. Hell, one Canadian chain, Canadian Tire, had a "Red Thursday". I'm like....WOT?? Is it anything like the "Red Wedding"? Come into our stores and get massacred at the till. :laugh:

    First, welcome to the HTF Forum :)

    I can't answer your specific question regarding That particular version of the WB multi-packs ... For mine 3 out of 4 had DVDs & Digital codes ... I don't typically redeem UV codes but I'm trying to get MoviesAnywhere to worK (at or or with more than Disney owned-titles. One of the codes (for Jersey Boys) indicated that it had expired on 11/17/17 but I set up an UltraVioilet account (as I believe Flixter - WB's recommended platform is not part of MA and from what I understand it is gone) and the code worked. My guess is that for the other WB fourpacks the results would be similar.

    These sets were only available around Black Friday at Wal*Mart and are not part of the regular stock ... They may go to a discounter such as Big Lots! after but I didn't see any of them left at my local Wal*Mart today. I hope this helps ...

    Thanks for the welcome.

    If you have a UV account, and set up/link a vudu account, you can redeem codes at vudu. But once you set up/link a movies anywhere account, you can redeem codes on their site as well. Movies Anywhere doesn't directly sell or rent movies - they'll direct you to your digital retailer of choice for that - but they let you watch your MA library (a lot of which will also be on your UV account) and they let you redeem codes that come with physical media.

    I blew all my money on the B&N Criterion sale, the Kino Lorber sale, and the TT sale that all took place this month. Black Friday didn't get anything out of me this year. LOL

    Of the many purchases, ordered Silence by Scorsese. It may have played a week or two here at the beginning of the year. It requires patience, but payoff is worth it. Cinematography is incredible. All for $5.99!

    That sucks, James. I was worried about the same thing with the Samsung 49-inch 4K display UPS finally delivered last night, as it had a large gouge on the side of the box. Fortunately, my display fared much better than yours and wasn't damaged.

    I'm sure the lesson here is don't buy after market tvs even if the desire for a discontinued legacy tech like 3D is strong. You're playing with too much fire.
