Digital ripoff

I recently bought a movie titled "The Gentlemen" and upon opening discovered that it can only be redeemed at itunes. There was NOTHING in the Best Buy listing to indicate this was the case. I would not have purchased the movie if I had known. I feel that half the value of the purchase is wasted and feel a bit ripped off. Just to be clear... I have nothing in particular against Apple but don't own any Apple products or see any reason to open an itunes account. If the listing only indicates "digital copy included" how can I know where it must be redeemed?

The back of the cover shows only an Apple logo as well. I guess make sure to look on the back before you open.

Also, Apple movie redemptions now function on most devices, including Roku, Fire TV, Xbox, Ps4/5 via the Apple TV app.
