Re: Netflix vs. Blockbuster.com for Blu-ray titles
I realize that Blu-Ray discs cost $10-$15 more than standard DVDs, but they will rent out these discs hundreds of times. I don't know what the premium that Netflix will charge to rent Blu-rays, but if averages even just $1.00 per rental more, that represents a huge profit over standard DVD rentals. If it is $1 to $2 a month extra for a plan that includes Blu-Rays, that is reasonable. They will more than make up for the extra cost of the discs. I can still rent DVDs from my local grocery store for $1.00, the only reason that I signed up for one of these services is for the Blu-Rays, I hope they don't end up trying to gouge us.
