When it comes to buying a gift for someone, you can never go wrong with a DVD, especially if it’s a film you know they’d watch over and over again. The thing is, most people don’t know how to create digital copies of their DVDs so they can watch it on their mobile devices, tablets or computers. But with Best Buy CinemaNow’s new service, they can convert their DVDs to an online digital format without even leaving their home.

The Best Buy CinemaNow service can create a standard-definition version of your DVD for $1.99 to $2.99, with high-definition versions costing $4.99 to $5.99. You’ll need to create an account with the service, download their CinemaNow Player onto your PC or Mac, and from there, you can pop in your DVD into your computer to be converted into an UltraViolet digital copy

The only downside of the service at this point is it doesn’t support any and every DVD you have in your library. The service can convert over 3,500 titles from studios like Sony, Universal and Warner. Before you decide if you’re interested in the service or not, you should head over to Best Buy’s Dropbox page to check out their full list of supported DVDs.
