Speed: You can start the download immediately after completing your order and do not have to wait for your order to be delivered.
Security: In contrast to DVD orders, there is no risk that you will lose the purchased software. All items you have purchased will be permanently saved in your CB Shop account together with the activation codes.
Handling downloads is also very convenient. If you e.g. move to a new computer or want to buy a second system, log on the new system into the CB-Shop and simply perform the download again. In addition, all FritzTrainers and ChessBase magazines are installed by default in the ChessBase/Shop folder on your hard drive. Your ChessBase program automatically displays all articles under "Purchased data".
Sustainability: By choosing downloads, you reduce the production of DVDs and DVD packaging, as well as goods traffic.
Many notebooks no longer have a DVD drive.
The Mac installer is only available as a download!
