I only read the initial replies on the first page. Have no idea what has transpired since because I felt that I needed to point out something about these Video On Demand programs.... There are members complaining about subpar quality and the lack of attention being given to these titles. Some think that DVD sales are on the decline to the point that this is the future of selling them to the public. I hope people will understand that these programs run by Warner, Universal and MGM are fantastic for the fact that they offer consumers the opportuntity to buy titles that, for the most part, would probably never see the light of day under any other circumstances. The studios have spent a lot of money putting out obscure titles on regular DVD only to see those sales go down the toilet. Retailers don't have the room anymore to stock obscure titles among the new ones. What a great idea to put out stuff that would probably only appeal to a niche market and produce the discs according to consumer demand. I understand there have been complications along the way with Warner's launch of the program. They really have tried to fix their wrong. I also understand that minimal cleanup is being done on these films. However, I also understand that the studios can't spend a lot of time and money on these very small titles that may only sell a few hundred copies. Someone on page one said if we don't support these programs then we will never have some of these titles in our hands. That's a correct asssumption. As far as the DVD-R media is concerned, I don't have any hard data on the durability of the media that the studios are issuing these films on. That's something that I have no comment on. And listen, I'm not sticking up for the studios for the sake of doing so. We know that mistakes have been made along the way. I just personally like what is being done here. Being a fan of THE GONG SHOW (see my Avatar) you can imagine how optimistic I am that Universal might use this program to release THE GONG SHOW MOVIE which has never been released to any home video format that I am aware of.
