28 day wait on all WB movies for Netflix and Redbox

Unread postby jclvd_23 » Mon Mar 29, 2010 3:49 pm

Apparently Netflix and Redbox have signed a deal with Warner Bros. where they have to wait 28 days to release movies on dvd/blu ray to their consumers. I hadn't heard about the agreement until I looked in my Netflix queue for the release date of Sherlock Holmes and was surprised that it wasn't set for tomorrow (3/30).

From what I've read, WB thinks this will increase their dvd's/blu-ray sales, and in return for this agreement it looks like Netflix might gain access to more streaming movies from Warner Bros.

This apparently happened a little while ago, but I hadn't heard anything. Was just wondering what you guys/girls thought?

Here's a link to an article I found on Google.

Really doesn't matter to me at all...

I wait the 3 months for 98% of the movies anyways...

I can wait 1 more...

Here's an idea for WB and other studios, how bout charging something like the price of a ticket ($10-12) to buy a movie and not $25-30 and maybe you'll move more units? Everyone knows it doesn't cost that much to burn a flick...Hell, most stores are selling them for haf price after a couple of months of being released...

Hell, Swerb probably wishes they'd wait a year or two so he could catch up ;-) ;) :wink:

You can stream through your PC, the PS3 and now the Wii. If you have a Wii you go to the Netflix site and request a free disc that will install the capability on your game system.

I just signed up for the free trial and requested the disc to install on the Wii having never used Netflix before. Watched a few episodes of 'Dexter' on the computer. Had never seen it, people love it and now I have to figure out when to fit in the rest of the 40 or so episodes because I'm hooked.

Christ. That's like telling people what happens at the end of a Lifetime movie about the disappearance of Natalee Holloway.

Also the Xbox 360 if you want to pay the fifty buck annual gold membership fee for xbox live. Ahem. Fuck you Bill Gates.
