Thanks. Unfortunately I don't have a blu ray player. Do they work on a laptop? I've not tried to get the dvd version recently as I bought it from Amazon ages ago and got a refund as it didn't have the TFF stuff on and none of their stock did as they checked! Maybe they have a new stock in by now. Thanks for the info. I may end up getting the blu ray version and going and watching it at my sister's!!! Thanks again.
I don't think blu-rays can be played on most PCs They certainly don't play in mine, though mine is a few years old. Sorry- it seems more and more often, they're not putting all the extras on DVDs anymore
You don't need a HDMI connection. Most Blu-ray players also have AV connection. Does your TV have 3 sockets of red-white-yellow labelled in? If so look for a Bluray player with the same type of sockets. You should be able to see these in product photos or display units. You will likely have to buy the connecting cables. Cheap ones should do the job so look for coax with red-white-yellow plugs. When I bought a Bluray player, I had it connected to a 12 year old 14inch analog TV. This would probably horrify the people who value HD quality but it worked fine and I have since bought a new TV.
A laptop might have a Bluray player but it is unlikely. The Bluray players look like a DVD or CD player but they have an additional laser to read Bluray disks. Look at the hardware configuration in the laptop OS or look at the drive to see if it has Bluray, DVD or CD labels.
According to blu-ray.com, these are the extras that will be on the Transcendence blu-ray:

Wally Pfister: A Singular Vision - Step inside the creative process of director Wally Pfister to see how he juggles the dazzling, technologically advanced visuals along with guiding the cast through their intense character arcs. Guarding the Threat - Join the debate on the benefits and dangers of "transcendence." The Promise of A.I. - Learn about the amazing potential of A.I. from scientists and the filmmakers. Viral Videos - "It's Me," "Singularity" and "R.I.F.T." Trailers
There might be some interesting CGI stuff on how they make Johnny look "uploaded", but I kinda wish they'd have some gag reels, deleted scenes, and commentaries. The extras just don't seem to be as good in general as they were in the good old days (like 5 years ago)
