blockbuster online blu-ray

Does Blockbuster online have blu-ray titles? I was certain they did but when I search...nothing comes up.

I don't think they have a separate listing. What you usually have to do is find the title that you know is available in BR, selection the "all editions" tab and then add the BR version from there. PITA really...


EDIT: Actually it seems if you go to "advanced search" and select BR as the format, w/o entering anything in the title box, and hit search it'll come up w/ a list of BR titles. You still have to do the "all editions" thing above though to select the BR version.

You can also see all the Blu-ray titles that they have under the "Collections" tab.

Blockbuster has the worst interface. I'm back to them this month, but by May I'll be back to Netflix until they annoy me. Then I'll jump back again.

Re: blockbuster online blu-ray

I've actually found Blockbuster's Blu-ray service to be fairly decent. Granted, most of the titles are on some type of wait, but they've always managed to send me one of the top three Blu-rays in my queue when I do an in-store exchange. This is my first month back with them though and I'm not sure if I'll continue into Feb. My subscription renewal is coming up on 1/15. I feel like I've gotten my $20 worth.

This is an old thread, but they've also made it much, much easier to choose Blu Ray versions... and you can set your preferences so that when you select a movie, it chooses the format that you prefer first.

Re: blockbuster online blu-ray

I don't mind the interface, but is it just me or is their website extremely slow? Every time I update my queue I have to wait a good 20-30 seconds PER title. It's very annoying.

And they don't lie when a title says "Very long wait" I've had titles since I joined in August with that status and they haven't moved yet.
