That's the studios' fault. Mom n Pop and Redbox rental places also get Rental Only versions with dumbed down audio and no extras. They think they're actually being clever by doing this, so people are forced to buy the discs in order to get the best version. However, what it ends up doing is pissing off a lot of people. They want to see if the darn movie is worth buying or not (though, it should be first and foremost about how good the movie is). How can they do this without the lossless audio included?
Where Netflx falls short is that they don't stock all the Blu-ray titles, or only get a relative handful of copies around the country, so the Ques always say LONG WAIT or VERY LONG WAIT. They're trying to get you switch to their streaming service, which is on the lackluster side (content and A/V quality wise). If it wasn't for Arrested Development and House of Cards, I would cancel too.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
