After my previous post about why streaming video shouldn’t be the future, and shouldn’t replace DVDs or Blu-ray discs, the great minds at Fox are now planning to remove extras from rental discs (via CNET), in the hopes that doing so will prompt people to buy the discs instead. So, now you won’t be able to rent the disc to see if the extras are worthwhile, and, instead, people for whom that might make a difference will just skip buying entirely. Brilliant.
