Beginning on March 31st, Fox is gonna be removing all the Special Features from there DVD rentals. source.Instead, All special features will remain on the retail DVD copies however.This will have a profound affect on those who use Netflix's DVD rental service, On top of that, Places like Blockbuster which usually sells used copies of DVDs that were once rental are gonna be affected by this.Costumers are surely gonna complain when the used DVD they bought doesn't have the special features, Instead they would be force to buy the retail copy.

So this will drive down rental prices right?I never watch extras anyway, so I'm not too worried about this.

Don't think so, Fox wants people to just buy the retail copy if you want the special features.

I only watch special features if I really like the movie. Most special features suck unless its an alternate ending.

Going to have to go with the gang on this one.... special features... nothing really that special about them. Not going to miss them a bit.Now if they were actually worth watching... then maybe.Oh and what's next, they are going to withhold the director's comments... yawn.EDIT: Unless that is part of the 'special features'... then never mind.

I'm not too terribly upset. I think the general consensus here is "Meh."

WOW THIS IS GUNNA BE A HEADACHE! FUCK YOU FOX. My job already sucks enough. I'm not going to hear the end of this by retarded customers who don't even watch the fucking special features to begin with. As for me, I don't really care. I only watch the commentary on movies I like a lot, and hardly watch the special features, most movies I like enough to watch the special features, I buy.

Blockbuster has been doing this for a while. They never add disc two.
