Not all Amazon movies go to DVD and Blu-ray, but some do. It turns out that Air will head to DVD, and you can pre-order it right now.
It was hard to say if Amazon’s Air would head to DVD and Blu-ray. It was the first movie since Late Night to head to theaters, but not all theatrical releases get a DVD release. In fact, Late Night didn’t and neither did Beautiful Boy years before that.
A DVD release doesn’t always make sense for streaming platforms. This could encourage people to watch without a subscription. However, that is more of a concern with Digital releases than DVD ones. DVD releases limit people to being around a player to be able to watch.
It looks like Amazon isn’t all that concerned with the streaming numbers. This is a movie that is getting a physical release.
When is Air on DVD and Blu-ray?
You’ll be able to own the movie on DVD and Blu-ray from Tuesday, Sept. 12. The good news is you can pre-order Air on Amazon already. This is a great way to make sure you land the price guarantee, so you only pay the lowest price up to the release date. If you order with Amazon Prime, you also land free shipping.
Would you prefer to get it on Digital? It doesn’t look like that will be an option. This does make sense for a streamer. Releasing content on Digital makes it very easy to watch online for just one cost upfront. There’s no need to pay monthly for the subscription service and you can watch the releases any time you want. Amazon doesn’t tend to release any content in this way, even when there is a DVD release.
Air is coming to DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, Sept. 12.
