i got a similiar high glossy catchy
magazine cover like ad for
a new Sci-Fi mini series in Decmeber.
These ads show 2 new business lines,
advertising and extension of
fulfillment beyond the DVD itself.
now Netflix is sending DVDs and
highly engaging magazine cover
caliber targets ads.
They are fun , a remind notice,
a book mark, a ticket to see the show.
way to go Netflix.

I posted about this in one of the other threads about ADs! There is, what, 3 of them now?!

I think its time to come up with some more interesting content ;)

I wonder how much the four color printing increases costs from the two color printing that they had before?

The new Aeon Flux movie looks awful, doesn't it? Count on Hollywood to ruin the spirit of any TV series, cartoon, videogame, comic, or book they try to adapt. The names are still the same, but the story and style have been changed to protect those with less talent.

"I wonder how much the four color printing increases costs from the two color printing that they had before?"

It doesn't increase costs at all, they would just charge the advertisers slightly more to make up for it. So the price differential is totally irrelevant. It costs a little more, and they charge a little more to advertisers that want more colorful ads. They are surely not passing the cost on to customers.

I had the Sci-Fi network, tv mini-series "the triangle" on my envalopes this week, but what I was more surprised about was the last of 3 "previews" on "the interpreter" dvd was for the tv series E-Wing. I guess the television networks also starting to use the dvd rental business as a means for advertising.

Anyone else having a hard time tearing the envelope open now?

All the better to make it harder for people to steal the DVDs while in shipment to your home.

I too have noticed with the new Ads type envelope that, not only is it harder to initially open, but also more difficult to later tear off the cover from the little sealing tape flap for returning.

Must be a new envelope vender or something.

The Ads are cool - even though I haven't been in an actual movie theater in years, so there's zero chance I'll do anything but add the future DVD to my queue...

"I too have noticed with the new Ads type envelope that, not only is it harder to initially open, but also more difficult to later tear off the cover from the little sealing tape flap for returning."

I haven't had any trouble, either by hand or with a letter opener. To remove the flap, I fold along the perforation, and rip it right off. I hope Blockbuster gets a new envelope, though. They just lost 3 for 3 - all due in 2 days, never arrived on the 4th day. When I reported it, they sent the next 3 and those arrived over night.

Either BBO's envelopes are falling apart in the mail or some pathetic loser who hates BB is stealing envelopes to undermine them. I have found if movies from Blockbuster don't arrive in 1-2 days, they are usually lost. Their flimsy envelope are partly to blame. Also the post office and/or postal thieves. Blockbuster usually gets the discs back OK, even if I don't receive them. So I doubt it is the post office.

What's probably happening is that my address flap is getting torn off by the mail sorting machines. I have received the flaps with no DVDs on several occasions. It's conceivable that the flap could be torn off and the DVD still stay in the envelope and be returned. But there's a small chance the DVD falls out into the mail and gets lost forever.

BLOCKBUSTER NEEDS A NEW ENVELOPE. I am sick of late DVDs or lost DVDs every month. I've never lost one with Netflix and they're not often late. Recently, several of my Netflix discs have arrived EARLY, arriving in 1 day instead of 2, or 2 instead of 3. (Defeating their lame attempts at throttling people by sending discs from hundreds or thousands of miles away.)

I don't think BB's discs are being stolen by the post office. 19 times out of 20, they're received back at Blockbuster within 1-2 wks. But if they had a new envelope, the problem would likely never occur. I've never gotten a Netflix flap with no envelope. Only a few times have Netflix discs not arrived. (They were always received back OK - no lost DVDs in almost 200.)

Sadly, you are correct.
