The HD Digital Download is free with some versions of Star Wars The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray

By Stephen Pate – The best way to get the HD movie of Star Wars The Force Awakens on your iOS or Android devices is to buy the Blu-Ray Digital + DVD + HD copy at the store or Amazon.

A download of the Digital HD movie plus the Bonus extras is free from iTunes or Google Play. If you don’t want the discs, you can download it from iTunes – Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Inside the Blu-Ray box is a slip sheet with the redemption code. You can’t go directly to iTunes or Google Play to redeem the code.  The code from Disney only works on their site.

Step 1 – Go to DigitalCopyPlus.com and follow the instructions.  Enter your redemption code  and click Go.

It’s a bit of work but worth it since you get the HD Digital movie that can be played on a computer, tablet or phone, the Blu-Ray disc and DVD for about the same price as the digital download.
