Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Now Available On Demand
Although there are a lot of TMNT fans who prefer physical media, fans who appreciate the digital copy will be happy to hear that you can now enjoy the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on demand via various services. The film was released digitally two weeks ahead of the DVD and Blu-ray. This is not entirely surprising, as we have seen similar decisions made for several home video releases over the past few years. Let’s just say that it’s fairly apparent that the studios would prefer to push digital sales over physical. To be honest, it makes sense, because that allows the studios to avoid paying for the production of discs, cases or artwork.
That all being said, I’m sure there are several shellheads out there who would prefer to wait the two weeks and get their own copy in one of the several specialty releases that are coming to Blu-ray on September 20th. Regardless, it’s nice to know that you can now watch this loving homage to the original animated series in its entirety on a variety of different VOD services. Whether you prefer to use Vudu, Amazon, Playstation or even Xbox, you’ll find that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows should be readily available for streaming pretty much everywhere.
As of yet, we have no idea whether or not this film will eventually make its way to services such as Netflix or Hulu, but there is a strong possibility that this will happen at some point. After all, you can currently watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) for free on Amazon’s Instant Video service if you have Amazon Prime. If it took less than two years to bring that film to one of the cheaper monthly VOD services, chances are that it won’t take very long to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows on a similar service within the next year or two.
Personally, I think the film is good enough to own, so I would recommend picking up your copy ASAP. Whether you decide to go digital or stick with a physical copy, September promises a lot of shell-raising action as Out of the Shadows is released on various platforms. Here’s hoping we all pick up and enjoy this latest addition to the film franchise!
