With 98% of Netflix's management attention focused on streaming, are they still paying attention to the DVD and Blu-ray side of the business? Reader Chuck writes, "I am seeing many more things go to waits, short and long and then unavailable. These are not movies that are out of print. Do you think Netflix is running off its inventory of DVDS in anticipation of degrading the dvd renting experience and pushing people to streaming which is cheaper for them but not nearly the quality for the viewer as it is presently done?"
Stephen Bowie on The Classic TV History Blog writes, "What does infuriate me is that Netflix is abandoning DVD before it should, and that it has not been honest with its customers in this regard. The once-mighty stream of DVD releases has slowed to a trickle now. Netflix could continue to stock every major disc release using only a fraction of the acquisitions budget that it once required. Instead its leadership chooses not to devote even those meager sums to physical media – sums that account for the margin between profit and loss for many small DVD companies that still fight the good fight to put out rare films and TV shows."
How would you rate Netflix DVD and/or Blu-ray availability?
