"With almost 800 million broadband connected devices globally, and millions of people accessing entertainment on those devices, we feel the medium’s time has come,’" said Mike Dunn, President Worldwide, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. "Digital HD redefines digital ownership in a way that presents consumers with a full range of benefits in a coherent way, and it allows them the chance to build digital movie collections that can literally be carried in the palms of their hands."

Kicking off the launch is Prometheus, available today on Digital HD for a hair under $15. It arrives in digital form a full three weeks before its Blu-ray, DVD, and video-on-demand (VOD) debut. It's also Fox's first UltraViolet-enabled title, the studios says. Other new releases on tap for later this year include Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Ice Age: Continental Drift, The Watch, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.
