    I don't know if it's appropriate to ask this here. Can anyone who is a current Blu-ray subscriber of Netflix tell me if the Blu-rays below are available to rent on Netflix? As Netflix members know, you have to be a Blu-ray subscriber to actually see what Blu-rays are available. And it's really unpredictable when Netflix actually puts a Blu-ray in stock. Some are available shortly upon release. Some take a long time after release. And some are just never available. I subscribed a while ago, and quite a few of these were not available. I wouldn't want to pay for another $20 subscription only to find out that Netflix still doesn't have a majority of these. Can someone tell me if these are available?

    *** Regarding "Carlos" and "The Twilight Zone", the last time I checked, the Netflix product pages showed the Blu-ray logo, which indicated Blu-rays were available. But the Blu-rays were nowhere to be found on the product pages. Are these Blu-ray available now?
    As you see, quite a few of these BDs have been out a long time, so I really hope Netflix has them this time.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. Are the ones you did not highlight not on Netflix then? If that's the case, I'm really disappointed that still only so few are available. Btw, just curious: is Netflix still showing that Blu-ray logo on the product page of The Twilight Zone or have they fixed it?

    You only asked if they were available in Blu-ray. As for the non-highlighted ones, most are on DVD but some aren't available at all. There is no longer a Blu-ray logo on Twilight Zone, however TZ is available for streaming in HD.

    The ones you did not highlight, are they not in Blu-ray on Netflix?

    That is correct. Out of that entire list, only seven were available on Blu-ray, however Total Recall is also available on Blu-ray but I didn't highlight it because it's the old BD not the newer one which you were asking about. Netflix does not carry very many catalog Blu-rays.

    Thanks again, even though this is very disappointing news indeed.

    Below is a list of BDs that I was able to rent at Netflix a few months ago, in case it could benefit others. Some are movie-only rental copies only, but most of what I have rented were full discs. Bonus-only Blu-ray discs are rarely stocked; we could only rent the corresponding SD DVD bonus disc, if there is one. Netflix does seem to stock a variety of Blu-rays, from Criterions to new studio releases, but you just can't count on them to have everything in a timely fashion.
    Sorted by studio release dates:
    High Noon (BD, Olive Films, 7/17/12)
    The Artist (BD, Sony, 6/26/12)
    The 39 Steps (BD, Criterion, 6/26/12)
    Harold and Maude (BD, Criterion, 6/12/12)
    Shallow Grave (BD, Criterion, 6/12/12)
    The Grapes of Wrath (BD, Fox, 6/5/12)
    Certified Copy (BD, Criterion, 5/22/12)
    Men in Black (BD, Sony, 5/1/12)
    Hugo (BD, Paramount, 2/28/12) *** RENTAL EDITION - MOVIE ONLY ***
    Anatomy of a Murder (BD, Criterion, 2/21/12)
    Tiny Furniture (BD, Criterion, 2/14/12)
    A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas (BD, Warner, 2/7/12) *** RENTAL EDITION - MOVIE ONLY ***
    Lady and the Tramp (BD, Disney, 2/7/12) *** RENTAL EDITION - MOVIE ONLY ***
    Harakiri (BD, Criterion, 10/4/11)
    The Lion King (BD, Disney, 10/4/11) *** RENTAL EDITION - MOVIE ONLY ***
    Citizen Kane (BD, Warner, 9/13/11)
    My Life as a Dog (BD, Criterion, 9/13/11)
    Secret Sunshine (BD, Criterion, 8/23/11)
    The Battle of Algiers (BD, Criterion, 8/9/11) ** DISC ONE ONLY ***
    The Stepfather (1980 version, BD, New Century, 6/15/10)
    Bigger than Life (BD, Criterion, 3/23/10)
    Clash of the Titans (1981 version, BD, Warner, 3/2/10)
    Ran (BD, Lionsgate, 2/16/10)
    Fame (1980 version, BD, Warner, 1/26/10)
    Paris, Texas (BD, Criterion, 1/26/10)
    Bottle Rocket (BD, Criterion, 12/16/08)
