Bootleg DVDs and Blu-rays of the Get Back series
Beatles fans hesitant to purchase Disney+ subscriptions are eagerly awaiting word of an official release of Peter Jackson’s acclaimed “Get Back” series with the Beatles.
Meanwhile, bootleggers or pirates are happily supplying this market. Fab! Productions were among the first to supply their products to this market segment.
They are supplying their products to their customers both as physical discs (DVDs and blu-rays) or as downloadable image files, so that the discs can be burned by the customers themselves. The blu-ray is in better picture quality than the DVD and both editions are in 5.1 Audio surround sound.
There are 1, 2 and 3 disc editions from various sellers out there, in various sound and picture qualities, we are informed.
One player in the market is labeling their product “Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment”, but is clearly also just another bootlegger. This is just a 1-disc blu-ray.
Included in their $29.99 offer is also Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s original “Let It Be” film, but most likely in a much inferior quality to the one that has lately been restored by Apple for possible future release.
Then there are people tech savvy enough to be able to download the video files themselves from the Disney+ app and burn their own physical discs. Artistic Beatles fans are conjuring up covers for printing their own inlay cards for these boxes.
We have not purchased or tested these products ourselves, so we are unable to comment of quality and of course, where to purchase these illegally produced blu-rays. Our advice: Wait for an official release.
