$11-$14 more at Amazon Video for HD vs. SD. Usually it's a $5 difference. $14 seems a bit excessive, almost double the price.

Oh it is...you are much better off grabbing the Blu-ray, redeem the code and sell off the discs or finding codes around here.

But Walking Dead is just one example, there are hundreds more. I mean why is Robin Hood the BBC series $90 freaking dollars on VUDU for all three seasons when all 7 seasons of Burn Notice is but $70. Honestly, I think most digital providers price it once and then forget about 80-90% of their titles. Unlike most B&M stores, I seriously doubt they use any serious tracking mechanisms to look at price. It probably doesn't help that whoever holds the rights charges a ridiculous price as well to these providers.

The first three seasons don't have digital codes.

Ohhhhhh, it's like the first four seasons of Big Bang Theory or the first volume/season of Anger Management or Nikita. (personal list)...yeah I absolutely hate those. I just endlessly wait for a sale that will most likely never happen.

I think the first few seasons of BBT had them...then they stopped for 2-3 seasons...then they had digital copies again...what a headache.
