No.

Your statement / question was never true. Since the inception of digital copies they have always worked on WMV compatible devices (including PCs).

As a matter of fact certain digitial copies do not work with iPods.

Sony (there haven't been any Sony titles with a DC yet) will be the first studio to have a digital copy that supports neither WMV or iPod (iTunes protected h.264) format - it will only work on PSPs.

I believe there is another thread already on this subject, but the answer really depends on the studio. The majority seem to be ipod only, however some include psp or are PC only.

There are no iPod only DCs. Never were.

Universal, Disney, Fox, Lionsgate and Paramount support WMV and iTunes.

Warner and New Line only supported WMV - zero support for iTunes. This has recently changed - Blow and Risky Business have iTunes (and WMV) compatible digital copies. You can also contact Warner for an iTunes download of Speed Racer.

Sony has yet you release a DC with any film but it is rumored that they will only support PSP/PS3.

My first digital copy (and only, thus far) came with The Nightmare Before Christmas Blu-ray. When I put the disc in, it prompted me to choose a format for my digital copy (the choice is permanent and can't be changed): Windows Media Player or iTunes. Naturally I chose iTunes, since this way I can play it on my iPod.

I didnt know the DCs were broken down to studio support. I just thought that DCs included in BDs like hitman, AVP2, and juno, would only work with ipods. I think I would like to get a zune but DCs packed in with BDs are appealing to me.
