Blockbuster carrying edited movies was not rumor. But it was only with movies that were unrated or got an X or NC-17. And films that were trimmed to get an R (ie:Basic Instinct, Angel Heart) - most video stores would carry the "unrated director's cut" where Blockbuster would only carry the R-Rated theatrical version.

I think I remember one location carrying laserdiscs, but very late in the game. I had been renting from a locally owned place for years that had 3 locations with tons of laserdiscs by the time Blockbuster got a clue. There was no reason to switch to a blockbuster I had to drive 3 times as far to get to with about a fourth of the inventory.

Indie and foreign is like 90% of Netflix. You're out of luck if you want to watch something new and domestic.

Unless it comes from Paramount. They seem to get Paramount stuff the same day it comes out on video more or less.

Wow! Jonathan Chang made a joke. I guess the end of Rocky IV was correct. Everyone can change!

We are not decades away..it's about the money. The technology is there. They choose not to put it out , but do it slowly. They string the public and unfortunately we have no choice and have to go along with it.

You're right that it's about the money, but not that they're purposefully stringing us along. What it's really about is earmarks and the free market. The Asian and European nations that have vastly superior internet have a government that invests in their infrastructure. But yes, it does cost money to run hundreds of miles of underground/underwater fiber optic pipes.

From what I hear all sotres are getting rid of software based movies and are switching to a Digital download format for your Mobile devices or Smart TVs so If you've seen some of these movies or music albums that are in an iTUnes card that's what they're switching too now dunno when they'll do it to movies but I defiantly know they're doing this with music

With music that is fine, I don't even buy physical cd's anymore mainly because I can download any album I want for free from the Android market. But with movies I am still going to be buying Blu Ray's.

If the day does ever come when Blu-rays cease to be sold, rather than pay for downloads I think I'll follow my dear old Dad's sensible advice and wait for the TV broadcast!

Blow up your TV, throw away your paper
Go to the country, build you a home
Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
Try an find Jesus, on your own

Ashely,

That is not downloading music from the Android Market, as you claimed. You are just using an app to download from somewhere on the internet, not from Android.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 1:37:41 AM PST
The Android uses the internet. Downloading anything from the Android market is downloading it from the internet.
