In addition to the episodes themselves, the disc will be part of Warner Brothers’ UltraViolet Digital Copy program, meaning you can stream the episodes on the go. Usually these are timed-use codes, so if you don’t redeem them immediately, you’re out of luck (don’t be like me and have a bunch of unredeemed and useless digital copies).
