Revolver to provide digital copies of DVDs

'City Rats' will be first release for portable devices

LONDON -- U.K. indie distributor Revolver Entertainment is following the U.S. studio lead by providing digital files of upcoming DVD releases, Revolver said Tuesday.

Such files allow consumers to transfer the content onto devices such as iPhone, PlayStation Portable and Windows Media Player.

The first Revolver DVD release to carry a digital copy will be "City Rats" starring Danny Dyer, Susan Lynch and Tamer Hassan, due to hit the shelves here this week.

Revolver chief Justin Marciano said: "Having a digital copy you can easily transfer onto your personal devices means that the film or program can be enjoyed more easily on the move."
