Hollywood is clueless…A delay in releasing dvd’s to Redbox or netflix will not make people buy dvd’s or blurays…They will wait…I know I will…Blu Rays are way overpriced…Maybe Hollywood should look at that…

I agree, I think most people will just wait, or pirate… they won’t buy more DVD’s

I’ll wait and by the time it shows up at Redbox I’ll have forgotten I ever had any interest in seeing it, so I won’t end up buying or renting it. Thank you Hollyweird, for protecting me from your wothless crap.

Hopefully not the latter “pirate” but I rent my dvd and those are older dvds that are out already so it won’t hurt me much in return. It just tells me the coporate heads are out of touch with the public in general they want their golden parachute and could care less on ahemm on giving good “Customer Service” rather they would loose customer instead. Now that a business model I bet a dollar on… :Z . For me even if I don’t buy many dvds at least by renting I am still supporting the dvd movie out industry which in return still goes by some means back to their pockets but they seem to fail to notice that business aspect side of it.

Did you read what we were talking about DVD not CD…Plus bootlegged DVD doesn’t guarantee you quality playback on DVD.
