All the people I know that buy DVDs have Blu-ray or UHD players. They bought whatever player was on sale, even though they use them for DVDs only. They buy the DVDs because they're cheaper, look as good as streaming movies to them, or both.
To each his own.
Hey _Man_, DMI will make up for it a little bit. I just got an email from them with one of those rewards codes for individuals, so you should be getting such an email soon, if you haven't already. It's good for 25 Points.
:D Because there's a dropdown arrow at the right end of the format box? ;)
Well, at least that's how it shows up on my computer, but I have no idea if that's so clear on a smartphone screen. Webpages for mobile devices can be so different from computer webpages. :wacko:
I suspect this pre-order for only 1,000 units with signed posters, only in the US, and offering only 4K UHDs and Blu-Rays, is to create a feeding frenzy and skim the cream off the top of the demand. Then later this summer, they'll offer a general release worldwide, without the signed poster, and...
Yes, the button in the email automatically applies the discount. :)
Unless I misunderstood, I took the email sentence "Only 1,000 copies available!" to mean that only 1,000 discs IN TOTAL (UHD + Blu-Ray) are available for this pre-order promotion, not 1,000 UHDs plus 1,000 Blu-Rays.
More Free DMI Points with April's DMI newsletter, plus a bonus:
LGVNBNOMNFS = 25 Points (expires 4/30/0222) <<<Never mind! As Jake points out below, they're user-specific.
New DisneyNature Blu-rays added to Rewards also.
My thanks also. I placed an order for 28 films on the first day, then for 12 more two days later. Got the shipping notice for the first order that same afternoon, and the shipping notice for the second order the next day. I'm actually covered for all WAC releases I want. :o
At least until the...
Wow! I got mine yesterday and it does NOT have reversible art. :( The back of the cover is a white blank. My insert in the case is a Disney Movie Insiders code sheet, not a movie poster. I wonder why the DMC did that?
I wasn't excusing it. Merely explaining that there's nothing unusual about a lack of bonus features on Club Exclusives, so one should not be amazed by it… unless, of course, one is new to the Club Exclusives and doesn't realize that's the norm. I assumed that to be the case with Todd (Capt...
Howie, that happens to me a lot also. I'm on an iMac (the same one for almost four years now) and stay signed in, but periodically I have to login again, and when I do, I always get an email from DMI advising me of a new login to my account. :wacko:
Ben-Hur (1925) was included as a special feature on the Ben-Hur Ultimate Collector's Edition released in 2011 and the Ben-Hur Diamond Luxe Edition released in 2014. Although it was on a Blu-ray disc with other special features, it was a restored version in SD, not HD. Maybe that's what's being...
Mine froze at that point on my oldest (2012) and most heavily used player (used daily). However, it played flawlessly on my two newer players (the oldest of which is just over a year and a half old) that are seldom used more than once or twice a month.
Region-locked doesn't matter to me. I've gone to region-free players. However, check Fabulous Film's website for the Blu-ray set and you'll see they list it as Region B:
I passed on the UK set a few years ago when it was down to about $103 + shipping...
What worries me is the entire series from Mill Creek is on 30 discs, but Fabulous Films' UK set has 37 discs. I suspect a lot of compressing.
I wonder if they're uncut original episodes or edited for syndication.
