I just ordered Cinderella man in HD DVD from Netflix. Got it in the mail today and it was the regular DVD version despite the fact the envelope it was in said HD-DVD. Anybody else have this happen? This is maybe my 10th HD-DVD from netflix and first time I had a problem.
More than likely, someone is scamming Netflix. They're buying a cheap used SD version of the movie. Then renting the HD-DVD from Netflix and then swapping out the discs when they return it. Apparently, it got by Netflix. I'm sure after being burned so many times, Netflix will wise up and do a visual inspection on every return of a HD movie.
I had this happen twice in two weeks with Blockbuster Total Access. Evidently some people are ripping off the HD versions and inserting SD versions when they return. I have cancelled BB Total Access. I was switching to Netflix anyway since BB won't be stocking HD-DVD in the stores, and the only advantage for BB was that you can return the rentals to the store.
