Question: iTunes cannot buy movie in HD

Trying to buy Spartan (movie) on iTunes but keep getting a message saying my computer cannot play the title in HD and offers me the SD version instead. My computer has HD (1920 x 1080) display and I'm able to buy any other HD content (although I do recall having this problem before)

Anyone know what's going on...? Thanks folks.

"This film cannot be played on this computer. You must buy and watch this film on an HD-compatible device. Or you can buy the SD version and watch it on this computer"

There is a note at the bottom-left on the iTunes screen saying "To play this in HD, your computer and display must support both HD and HDCP"

Have tried re-authorising the computer. All iTunes playback and download preferences at 1080p. Thanks for your help tt2.
