I am in total agreement with you .. all I'm offering is a glimpse at how the Machine works .. and I'll add that selectively re-stocking disks that demand out strips stock also involves a turn-a-round time in order to actually get the disks .. and all orders require a minimum quantity to get pricing ..


I'm not defending NF in any way shape or form, but I don't think Hastings is going to change the method, especially as they move bit by bit to an all-streaming model ..

If this is the source, http://www.homemediamagazine.com/mar...k-ended-051615 it doesn't say.

I don't know that if putting that fine a point on the numbers would change things dramatically, percentage wise .. from what I know, most disks are still bought either as DVD or BD .. the combo pack DVD is really just a value added marketing tool directed towards those that buy the BD anyway ..

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
I am in the exact same boat. "Interstellar" has been on "short wait" at the very top of my queue for at least a month. I am in the middle of doing some work on my home theater or I would probably go to Redbox to rent it.

I just put NF BD disk "Interstellar" in the mailbox at my curb.

A disk that was supposed to arrive today didn't, looks like my luck ran out on receiving NF disks.

I call it a negative value. I hate being forced to pay extra to have a DVD included with a BD. Something that I will never use or watch. And because of the added cost it has an effect of lowering the number of my overall BD purchases.
