this is a great service, i love picking out movies online and getting them in a day or so...I use the 3 at a time plan, anyway...their UI is OK...but some info isn't arranged at its best. For example, if you go to view info for a movie...it doesnt contain a lot of info- sure it gives you actors and Grammy awards , but i think it should have stuff like the supported audio streams...stuff along those lines.
Well to get to my point- if you are a blockbuster customer and you would benefit or like this idea, check out what i emailed to them....
Hello, i love blockbuster online...i love renting movies and watching them on my home theater....
Especially DTS Movies, or high quality Dolby Digital Movies. I don't believe, i KNOW, that if your site would contain information as to whether a certain DVD has these options, your rentals would increase, equalling more service. The growing popularity of home theaters is increasing, and people want high quality audio. Every person i know that is in this situation ( a very lot, as i am active in various forums) agrees that DTS is the best.
A lot of movies are starting to support this and older ones are coming out with super bit, collectors editions...etc, that contain this encoded audio stream. On your site, some movies don't even tell whether they have Dolby digital. Some movies have DTS and don't say either, for example, The Eagles: Hell Freezes Over does, (i know this because i own it....) but an ordinary person wouldn't unless they researched. And, even then, your site may have a different version. An example of that is Terminator 2: Judgement Day. I have this movie in my Que. I've researched and found out that the "Terminator 2: Judgment Day: Ultimate Edition" is is DTS compatible. Under the information you have for this movie it doesn't say whether it does or not, and since it isn't the Ultimate Edition, i can inductively conclude it does not have DTS.
I know it would be a pain in the but, but think about it...you'd have the lead in online rentals. You'd dominate, and you'd get a lot of Netflix customers- a lot of my friends (20-25) use netflix, only because that's what they've been using since they started. They've said they would easily switch if this feature was available. It's all about customer convenience too, as you see. Which brings me to my final recommendation. Also, if would be very effective to have a advanced search option for DTS, Grammy awards for sound...picture....etc.
That's all I have to say. I'm just a happy customer trying to help out this potentially dominating company.
If this is a sales representative etc...please forward this to your manager, boss...website design team...
