Digital Theatre launches download site

As Alistair Smith reports in The Stage, a new website, Digital Theatre:
...will see full length versions of stage shows filmed in high definition using multiple camera angles made available to download and keep at the cost of £8.99 each. The films will be copy protected and only be playable through specific software which is free to download from the site.
A partnership between a number of leading British theatre companies, Digital Theatre's first offering is the English Touring Theatre company's Far From The Madding Crowd, adapted by Mark Healy from the novel by Thomas Hardy. New, original work will also feature.

It seems an interesting initiative, although it's annoying (and surprising) that the website is all in flash.
