I just signed up for Blockbuster because of this new shortage of B-movie distributors at Netflix (Shout Factory, Blue Underground, Troma, etc.) along with some of the more mainstream missing Warner, MGM and Criterion catalog titles. It's certainly no panacea, but fills a few gaps at least.

For Shout Factory's Roger Corman Cult Classics specifically:
  • Both NF and BB have Death Race 2000.
  • BB also has on BD:
    • Humanoids from the Deep
    • Piranha
    • Rock 'n' Roll High School
  • Neither BB nor NF have on BD:
    • Galaxy of Terror
    • Forbidden World
    • *Starcrash (Listed on BD at BB, but unavailable.)

Back to the Future Blu-ray release is only available as the 25th Anniversary Trilogy containing all three movies. Most likely it will not be widely available as a single disk until after Christmas to maximize the sales of the ~$50 box set. Not releasing a single disk rental version is a marketing decision made by Universal Studios. Universal is betting that you'll get mad enough to go buy the box set!

The LOTR was releases as a Trilogy and they were available in singles for rental from BB and I believe Netflix as well.
So Warner/New Line obviously allows a box set to be separated for rental but may be Universal does not.

With Blu-ray Blockbuster is $8.99 per month, Netflix is $10.99 per month. They carry all those that were asked about in that post above. Hard to say what will happen to BB, in the meantime why not use them while they are still around? No streaming, but they do have OnDemand to buy/rent/download just like Apple, Amazon, etc. In my experience, my waits have consistently been shorter with BB than they have been with Netflix. I'll put a title in both queues, and far more often than not, BB is the one preparing to ship it out first. For $3 more per month($11.99) you can also get 5 in-store exchanges per month, typically it ends up being more though, remember, Netflix charges $10.99 per month just to get Blu-ray.

To each his/her own, Blockbuster has been working great for me, and since there's no contract, if they fold, I'll just use Netflix more. Currently I use Netflix for foreign film streaming, in fact, I'm going to drop the mail disc portion very soon. I have yet to see the streaming only option show up as a choice yet though, I thought they started that just a few days ago?

He made a note of the titles and said he'd get it to the order department, or whatever.

Might not be worth much, but if a number of people call and make that complaint, maybe they'll change their ordering. The number is 1-866-716-0414.

win2000 etal, just called NF customer service, read them the list above. The guy was cordial and recognized all of the films, He made a list and said he would forward it.
I of course informed him that not having these films and other future films would make my NF account useless.

Thanks guys. I'm calling as well this is bull$hit.
I quit NF years ago when their service started to suck and I can do it again no problem.

I stand corrected. When I had BB last Sept (for 4 years) it was $20 a month.

The numbers I posted are for the 1-disc Total Access(includes free in-store exchanges) plan. BB is $19.99 for 3-disc Total Access while Netflix is $20.99 for 3-disc w/BD. BB does not distinguish between DVD and BD, it's all the same pricing.

True, true. I guess NF is $1 more, but I figure it's worth $1 more since I stream over half my movies.

Yes, as I said earlier, it's personal preference, I really like the Netflix streaming for it's selection of foreign films, and I like the ability to free exchange in-store with BB(plus I don't seem to have as many long waits as with Netflix - and BB has BDs Netflix doesn't even carry), so I have the cheapest plan with both services which works for me.

Thanks for the info. If NF offers a $7 streaming-only membership, I might just use both: NF for my streaming needs and paying $9 for the BD/games plan BB offers. It would be only $5 more a month and I would be ensured to get the BD I want as well as enjoying the streaming.

I just checked and every BD I couldn't get from NF in the last couple of months (and still can't) is available at BB.

Now I guess we just have to wait until Netflix offers that mythical streaming-only plan.

now shows a $7.99 streaming only plan, and you can add unlimited DVDs for $2 more, which would make the 1-DVD plan $9.99 (or $1 more than before).

In other words, looks like Netflix just hiked the price on their bottom unlimited for new subscribers.

they would say their reason is that they are catalog titles. Doubtful Blockbuster stores would be getting those on BD in store.

Actually I wouldn't expect them to have Aliens yet. Whenever a disc is released as part of a box set, Netflix doesn't get it. When the release the Alien movies on individual discs, you'll be more likely to see it.

Redbox and 'The Pacific'? It doesn't show up on a search at their site, maybe on or after the release date, I don't have any experience with how Redbox works.

You can go online, look at the Kiosks near you to see what titles they have, then reserve the BD(or DVD) at that location and pick it up later. You swipe your credit card and 15 to 20 seconds later it spits the disc out.
$1.50 for the first night with BD($1 for DVD) Then you can return it to any RedBox Kiosk prior to 9PM the next night.(or you can just walk up to a Kiosk a browse and get a title there using a credit card)

Not as convenient as Netflix, but for the occasional spur of the moment BD rental, or with these free rentals from the Monopoly game it's worth it.

I'll have to try that out, although if memory serves, I think the BB kiosks have replaced the Redbox ones where I recall seeing them. I think my local Safeway had Redbox but is now BB.

I just got off the phone with Netflix. I complained about them not having the following TV shows and movies available on blu ray: Supernatural Season 5, Chuck Season 3, Battlestar Galactica Season 4, Battlestar Galactica Razor, Doctor Who Season 5, Seven, and the Back to the Future movies. I told the customer service rep that these titles are available on blu ray at blockbuster. I said that I didn't mind waiting 28 days for new releases but I was upset that there was no indication as to when these titles, if ever, will be available on blu ray. They just say DVD; not even a "blu ray availability date unknown." I told her I was thinking of switching to Blockbuster. She told me she didn't know when these titles would be available on blu ray, but that she made a record of the titles I mentioned. She said she could understand my frustration of not knowing when they would be available on blu ray.

She sounded very sympathetic to my complaints. She was a little too good at her job. After I got off the phone, I realized I forgot to complain about the fact that I'm paying extra for blu ray and yet it seems like that money is going towards streaming titles and not towards buying more blu rays. I think I would have done a better job complaining if I had gotten a rude customer service rep, instead of a polite, cute sounding, professional one.

I told the customer service rep that these titles are available on blu ray at blockbuster. I said that I didn't mind waiting 28 days for new releases but I was upset that there was no indication as to when these titles, if ever, will be available on blu ray. They just say DVD; not even a "blu ray availability date unknown." I told her I was thinking of switching to Blockbuster. She told me she didn't know when these titles would be available on blu ray, but that she made a record of the titles I mentioned. She said she could understand my frustration of not knowing when they would be available on blu ray.

She sounded very sympathetic to my complaints. She was a little too good at her job. After I got off the phone, I realized I forgot to complain about the fact that I'm paying extra for blu ray and yet it seems like that money is going towards streaming titles and not towards buying more blu rays. I think I would have done a better job complaining if I had gotten a rude customer service rep, instead of a polite, cute sounding, professional one.

I agree with everything, except for BSG season 4. It actually hasn't been released on blu-ray yet. It is in the big box set, but the stand alone season won't be released until January. I don't expect Netflix to buy box sets and break them up. Especially since every other season is available individually.

My Netflix account is verging on bye-bye.

 

It ain't ignorance causes so much trouble; it's folks knowing so much that ain't so

I've had my blu ray disc for 3 weeks, and feedflix says I've watched 32 streaming titles this month.
