21? So that's basically the entire Ghibli catalogue of feature-length films? Too bad it's US-Canada only.

Well GKids only have the rights in US/CA. They can't sell the movies in countries where the license is owned by someone else, and I'm pretty sure the Ghibli movies are licensed just about everywhere. Ask your local licensor for digitals now that the dam has been released in one region.

Anyways, you can find the blurays for pretty cheap, like somewhere between $13 and $17, on Amazon and at Walmart/Best Buy, with them being dual-audio as well. So it kinda is unwise to price the HD versions at $20 each, especially when many retailers only allow you to buy a single audio option at a time (so $40 each for both sub and dub versions digitally). Digital should be cheaper than physical disks, in my opinion. Hopefully they will at least have a <$5 rental option, like many movies do.
