Some of the pre-orders used to have “Projected Release” dates. I liked having these and it didn’t bother me one bit if a date slipped or even disappeared.

I liked it so much I even started a tread to track:

Noticed that next weeks’s releases that were on pre-order have fully downloaded(download completed and not paused) but are not showing up. As per email notification that I received “The title will not appear in your onscreen display until its official release day.”

This would be a nice change to have pre-orders 100% downloaded and only needing authorization on day-of-release if this is how it is done going forward.

I can confirm that this is indeed new behavior!

We've been wanting to clean up the user experience for downloading pre-orders for quite awhile. Now, instead of pausing the download at ~99% until the release date, the movie will be fully downloaded to the system, but kOS will keep it hidden in the user interface until the release date arrives and playback becomes authorized.

Note that your system does need to have Internet connectivity for that playback authorization to happen -- it's issued from our headend upon release.

You can see movies that have been downloaded but not yet authorized in your system's History or Import page in the browser interface. They will show with a status of "Awaiting playback authorization".

Systems with 10.4/8.4 or later include this support.

Just want to say I love having the expected release dates on pre-orders in addition to the pre-orders downloading prior to the release date. Thank you Kaleidescape!
