So it seems that Netflix has done a deal with Warner Brothers. Want to rent a new WB DVD out of the box? No chance. Quoting the ol’ press release:
New release titles on DVD and Blu-ray will be made available to Netflix members after a 28-day window, giving Warner Bros. the opportunity to maximize the sales potential of those titles and Netflix the benefits of reduced product costs and significantly more units and better in-stock levels four weeks after street date.
TechCrunch’s MG has probably burst a blood vessel at this point. Meanwhile, Mosspuppet basically tells him to suck it up and take it. Fun for all!
