Kavajuice: "I can’t seem to get anything in terms of new released movies. It’s either a Short Wait or a Long Wait. Don’t get me wrong, I expect to wait if I am not on the queue for the next shipment but c’mon. Don’t they anticipate movies like 300 to have tons of viewers. Waiting 4 weeks and still nothing - 300’s DVD release was July 31, 2007. Don’t think I’ll get till September, if I’m lucky."
Netflix and Blockbuster allocate movies based on your usage profile, so some customers might see new releases immediately, while it can take a long time for others.
I just added 300 to my Netflix queue:
..and my Blockbuster queue shows "Long Wait:"
What have you found? How long do you wait for new releases from Netflix & Blockbuster?
