Last month I wrote about the new policy from 20th Century-Fox to strip extras from DVDs intended for the rental and library markets.
The first film released with this new policy was SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE.
Apparently Fox has received a great deal of negative feedback for their new policy, which was intended to help drive up DVD sales.
The studio also failed to successfully execute the new policy, sending some rental stores "fully loaded" DVDs in error.
Fox will now allow libraries to order DVDs with extras. The DVDs cost the same with or without extras, so one would assume ordering copies with extras is a no-brainer.
It's not yet clear whether Fox is also going to give up on the idea for rental copies.
