What is the difference between a Nero Product Update and a Product Upgrade?

Updates
Updates within one Nero version are free of charge.
For example if you already own a copy of Nero 2017, you can update for free to all upcoming Nero 2017 updates.

Upgrades
If you use a Nero Essentials version or any older version of Nero (e.g. Nero 2016 Classic, Nero 2016 Platinum or before) you can upgrade to Nero 2017 Classic or Nero 2017 Platinum at a very reasonable price. If you use a Nero 2017 Classic version, you can upgrade to the Nero 2017 Platinum version for a special price.

Please visit our Upgrade – Info Page for information and pricing.

Upgrades are available as serial number only. If you want to receive an installation disc, please add the Backup DVD to your cart. Nero does not offer retail DVD packages as an upgrade product.
