We’d heard word of this from American sites, but it turns out Fox’s discount sale app is actually available here in the U.K. already! Basically it’s like Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day, but studio-specific and iTunes-specific, which statistically covers a good chunk of you reading this if not all of you. If this sounds like a good way to get digital HD copies of your favourite genre flicks from the studio with a serious number of franchises, then check out the following press release.
