9; that's just the way things work. But the big three that we know about are the Wii Shop Channel, the Ultraviolet movie streaming service, and the Google+ social network.
The Wii Shop Channel What a service that digital copies video games, and most Nintendo games. Nintendo consoles
Ultraviolet is a video service that lets you purchase movies. Some DVDs come with codes that you can use to make a digital copy of the movie on Ultraviolet. This is mostly a movie streaming service, but you can use it to download movies. Sadly, Ultraviolet is shutting down on July 31, 2019. If you want to save your Ultraviolet purchases, the company suggests transferring licenses to a competitor's service, like Movies Anywhere. These competitors are probably just trying to make the most of their ultraviolet purchases.
Google+ is shutting down on April 2, 2019, and Google is going to clear all the data from the Google+ servers. But you have the opportunity to save your data before Google kills the service.
Looking at this list, This is not really the property that you are looking for, but it is valuable for personal and public archives, and will probably come as a source of mild frustration for archivists in the future.
you'll notice an annoying trend. These services, which are either failing or being discontinued, are not really worth anything to preserve your digital property.
It's kind of understandable for Ultraviolet and Google+. Ultraviolet can not afford a solution, and Google+ what a flop from the get-go. But why is Nintendo operating like this? Super Mario Bros 3?
Most Digital Property Is Controlled By DRM
Digital Rights Management (DRM) is an anti-piracy measure that prevents you from producing or using illegal copies of downloaded material. It's a digital form of the anti-piracy signal on VHS tapes. Usually, DRM protected content.
Steam games, iTunes purchases, and Wii Shop Channel are all considered DRM protected content.
