As well as movies, the digital platform gives access to ebooks, audio books, music, TV shows and merchandise. On an easy-to-use website, content can be downloaded and viewed or listened to on up to five different devices within the Flux Player app at any one time - available on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, Kindle fire and Smart TV.

VDC also offers a solution to distribute codes for a free download with any DVD or other physical product the client produces. NtertainU maximise exposure to a client's catalogue through a variety of marketing tools including:

- Download codes distributed with DVDs
- Search engine optimization
- Display advertising and Instream YouTube advertising
- Engaging with consumers through social media and social media marketing
- High profile releases on the website, which will increase traffic

The platform offers a tool to selling directly to consumers through the website, as well as through other outlets such as Amazon and eBay. Content is copy-protected and can be restricted to certain territories using DRM. Any menus and extras included on the DVD can also be included in the digital copy.
