For those who have the LotR 4K set...
#1
...and have taken advantage of the digital code, what format are the resulting 4K digital copies in?  Do they have some form of DRM or copy-protection? And how large are they in terms of file size?

I ask because, at this point, I don't have a 4K set or player, but don't want to close off my avenues in the future by waiting for the standard Blu-Ray re-release this fall.  I'd much rather prefer purchasing the 4K sets, downloading the digital copies, and then downconverting them to 1080p so I can watch them on my current setup for the time being.  (And, yes, I live in the U.S., so would be eligible to download them in full 4K.)  Thanks for any information you could give me.

I'd be very surprised if the download wasn't encrypted.

ALL digital movies have DRM. This includes iTunes, Google, Amazon, Hulu, etc.
Also 4K releases include HD versions to download. So you can always watch the proper version for your setup.

They do?  I was under the impression that the only versions available in the downloads were 4K (for U.S. customers) and 480p (for those in the rest of the world).
