Disney Pixar CARS: Mater Tall Tales DVD Now Available on iTunes

The Mater Tall Tales “DVD” is now available on iTunes (US).

Now, you actually have a choice to make. If you want to watch it on your Mac or PC and want to stream it to your AppleTV or transfer it to your iOS device (unlimited transfer BTW in your household as long as you share an account) – you might want to consider buying the iTunes version.

The HD looks spectacular on the iOS devices – iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad.

So, if you are going to watch it on a portable iOS device or if you have an AppleTV device to stream it to your TV, the iTunes version is the best resolution and portability.

Because while you can “rip” a copy from the DVD to load on your iOS device (or some other non Apple device), the DVD resolution is not going to match the iTunes HD version … and while I’m sure some of you have a Blu Ray reader and know how to rip Blu Ray DVD’s – you  clearly don’t don’t need my help and I know the numbers are not huge out there. 🙂

Click on the graphic above to launch iTunes or this LINK. You can pre-order or just wait until November 2, 2010.

The DVD or Blu Ray DVD versions do NOT include a Digital Copy so for now, if you want a copy on your portable device, you either have to buy the iTunes version again or “rip” your own from the DVD.

But if portability is not a big deal to you – obviously just buying the DVD or Blu Ray is the way to go.

Or if the DVD is not available in your country, all you need to do is get a US iTunes card and set up a “new” account – you can follow along the instructions on how I bought the HD shorts on the UK site – just switch to the US store.

(the interesting thing is on the UK iTunes store, you can buy them separately though the bundle deal is better – it does not look like the US one has the shorts being offered separately but logically, it seems like it should be separate files – it might change when the “DVD” is actually released on iTunes).

BTW, Costco offers a good deal on iTunes cards and Sam’s Club has a $100 card for @$88.00.

Or if you just want the DVD discs with same day delivery and price matching – AMAZON. (The Blu Ray DVD contains both the Blu Ray version & the DVD version).

Or the plain ole DVD version. Amazon.

    You get the MTT cover art if you buy it on iTunes, if you burn a copy of a DVD I think it just gives you the title or some generic name, like “movie track” or something like that. I noticed that with songs I copied from CDs.

    We already pre-ordered the Blu-Ray but I think we’ll get this too. It’s nice to have something like this when the boys are getting noisy at a restaurant.

    (MET: If you use the GET TRACK NAMES feature in iTunes when you insert the CD, the Mp3 you create will have all the art & artist info … Movies are different – if interested, email me).

    UK Members:

    This Blu Ray does play on the UK PS3 despite being coded Region A only! And DVD works fine in my Multiregion enabled DVD player and on my PC.

    And YES, they look awesome in 1080p High Definition. The extra’s are also cool, which you won’t get if you resort to iTunes. Includes a grat clip on Carsland! Can’t wait to get there!

    First! Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting this DVD. I like the Toons. I hope they make more.
