Warner Brothers has now announced that the soon to be released Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD will contain two downloadable digital files. Video Business reports that

The latest Potter installment will allow DVD buyers to download the film to a PC or a portable device, making Warner the first studio to so marry physical media and downloads.

Jim Wuthrich, Warner senior VP of digital distribution, unveiled the development at Tuesday’s DVD Forum conference here, as he discussed the studio’s plans to meet what it sees as a growing consumer demand for digital content.

“You can buy the DVD and have the option of the digital copy,” said Wuthrich. “This future-proofs the format for consumers.”

As reported previously the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix DVD will be released here in High Definition and Standard DVD formats on December 11. The UK will see the arrival of the Potter DVDS a month earlier on November 12. Also WB will be releasing the previous Harry Potter films on High Definition DVDs and these discs, various gift sets, and the special DVD game are all available for pre-order in our Cauldron Shop.

One related note: Thanks to Pruneau from La Gazette du Sorcier who let us know the Order of the Phoenix DVD will be released in France on January 11, 2008.

UPDATE: Britta emailed to say the OotP DVD will be released in Germany on November 16t, and another reader emailed to say November 20 will bring the release of the DVD in Italy.
