Thumbs down Re: Netflix vs. Blockbuster.com for Blu-ray titles

However, so far I haven't seen much sign of this. In fact, even the titles that they carry are seldom available "now". All of the BD titles in my queue say "long wait" or at best "short wait". What gives?
Does anyone use Blockbuster.com? I wonder if they are any better?
Netflix also announced that it will be raising the price of its BD rentals. Sighting that people should pay more for superior content. This is a step backwards for BD adoption.
