digital purchase FAQ’s
What is a Digital Download or Digital Copy?
A Digital Download or Digital Copy is a version of the full-length movie purchased over the internet. It’s a copy of the movie that can be downloaded or streamed to a computer, mobile device, or certain internet-connected TVs without a physical copy of the product. Depending on the purchase, this may include multiple files, artwork, behind-the-scenes content, etc.
How do I watch a Digital Purchase?
After purchasing a digital download from the website, you’ll immediately have the option of watching the film or downloading the digital file(s) to your device.
A receipt will also be sent to the purchaser’s email address with a link to access and download the digital purchase at any later time.
For PREORDERS, the digital copy of the film will NOT be available until the date and time indicated in the product description. However, a purchase receipt will still be sent to the purchaser’s email address. A second email will be sent when the movie is released and available for viewing.
Do I have to purchase the film via digital download?
You do not have to purchase the film via digital download. “DEBT” will also be available on other popular digital video-on-demand platforms. Currently it is available on Amazon, but additional platforms will be added in the future. See the BUY page below “OTHER PLATFORMS” for links to purchase the film using other online platforms.
Bonus content (e.g., commentary and blooper tracks) may not be available on other video platforms.
Do I have a certain number of days to watch it once I buy it?
