I have some RewardZone certs to burn AND right now Best Buy has a deal where if you spend $100 on TV shows you can get a $25 gift card... so I'm thinking of doing that to get a couple of new Blu-ray seasons I wanted, then use about $55 of RewardZone certs against the $79.99 price so that for about $130 I can get Star Wars + Supernatural + either House or Fringe... which averaged out is like $43 per set OR I can divide it out so my TV sets are cheaper if that makes me feel better
I feel I would be fine paying $60 for the 6 Star Wars movies... which isn't the deal some got... but I would be essentially bundling that with getting Fringe and Supernatural for $35 each.
Yeah, it hasn't happened yet... and I do want to watch these... but IF they didn't play, that might force Samsung's hand more than the other stuff has up to this point.
They responded pretty quickly to Avatar... so I can only imagine the pressure if Star Wars won't play!
Ya, not to take us further off topic, but that's a little rich for my blood for TV box sets. I tend to wait and pick them up used either locally or online. I generally only buy them in cases where I have discovered a new show I missed or one I just did not watch for some reason. Sometimes waiting for them to come in the mail from BB and NF is a bother and easier to buy them cheep, then resale them and turn a profit. I have a good track record of this, did it with; True Blood, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, SGU and a few others. In the case of Breaking Bad I was able to get season 1 and 2 new for ~$10 each, watch them and then unload them for more than double what I paid. I had seen the episodes, but not on BD uncut and my son wanted to get caught up in the middle of season 3 when it was endlessly re-ran earlier this year. I have collected select seasons of Battlestar and those you can get dirt cheep right after they release (demo sets I think) and was able to pick up the complete Lost BD set for ~$100 which was a great deal for a 100% intact in excellent condition used set (with none of the goodies open) of that. I still have a few TV box sets lying around that have not sold, I haven't got around to listing yet, or haven't watched; SG:U season 1, Heroes season 1, The Walking Dead, Vampire Chronicles season 1 etc.
For the most part I prefer to DVR or watch TV OnDemand rather than on BD, however the overall experience, VQ and SQ are far superior on BD. I will be picking up SG:U season 2 for just that reason and Lost and Battlestar look fantastic on BD. Other than those few shows I don't want to own TV shows I have already seen.
