Selling digital products with very large file sizes

I have a dilemma that I'm hoping someone can help me out with.

I'd like to sell some digital products that have very large file sizes, but I'm not sure of the best way to do this.

Basically, I've got some Blu-ray films I've authored but selling only physical copies is very time consuming. I'd like to give people the option to download digital copies, but I don't want to compress the files. I want to give people the option to download 1:1 iso image files that they can either play on their computer or burn onto BD-R discs to play in any Blu-ray player.

Per title, the file sizes range from 40gb to 80gb (some titles have two discs).

I've got every title uploaded to MEGA.NZ but I don't know of a good way to sell products that are uploaded there. Ideally, I'd like purchase to be locked to a particular IP address so they can't just share the MEGA link and decryption code to a bunch of people.

I know it's difficult to avoid having people share digital products, but I want to discourage it as much as possible.

All the platforms I've found for selling digital products can't accommodate file sizes anywhere near what I'm working with.

Any ideas on how to sell digital products at these file sizes?

    Do you understand that mega.nz is owned by the largest stolen file sharing person on the planet?

    You've already done the damage on your own.

      Okay, but that doesn't answer my question. I never uploaded my files to MEGA with the intent to sell them. I did so as a personal backup and to share them with people for free.

      The advantage to MEGA is that they give you a huge amount of storage space and allow a lot of bandwidth for downloads each month for a relatively low price.

      I've heard of people selling digital content that they've uploaded to Dropbox. I'm just looking for any solution to hosting and selling large digital files.

      Simply because MEGA is commonly used to distribute "stolen" material doesn't mean there isn't a way to encrypt your files or sell content that's uploaded there.

      Realistically, any digital content that you sell can be shared after the customer downloads the file. There is no way to stop this completely, but you can make it less likely to occur.

      I just want to make it a little harder than simply sharing a link I send to them. The mere fact that someone would have to re-upload 50gb on another platform should be discouraging enough.
