More to the point Fox have pretty much said they want people to move to the app, so letting Shout release them on DVD would ruin the whole point. Like Penguin said pages ago, this is a push by the studio to move you toward digital, just like the 2 weeks early digital releases.

Exactly... this isn't about people not buying DVDs... it's about FOX not wanting you to buy them. IF they were willing to still sell DVDs, they would do it themselves and not farm it out. They know there's a market for them... they just, apparently, don't want that market to exist.

Hopefully Fox will realize what an idiotic choice this was and change their minds at some point.

Maybe if they didn't sell this for $40, I've been waiting for it to get to $25 but I have yet to see it anywhere.

But what will make them come around? The poster just below you already made a point to say they won't buy these releases at $40, and unfortunately, studios like to see the early sales numbers. The 'i bought it for dirt cheap months later' crowd doesn't factor in much.

They can get guaranteed ad revenue from the streams... And lots of it. Having a resource to view any episode of The Simpsons on a plethora of devices is pretty fantastic, and people are going to lap it up. It's free, provided you have a cable subscription.

Catalog releases aren't top sellers for studios. The new, major motion blockbusters are. From a business perspective, what they're doing is pretty smart, and a fraction of a percentage of potential customers whining online won't change their mind.

Speaking of Simpsons World, I haven't been on it since it launched. Have they fixed the horrible commercial break timing issues that were plaguing many of the episodes? (Going to a commercial in the middle of a joke)

This is a rough year for us, first the announcement of no more DVDs, and now we're losing Harry Shearer:

What next?
But the thing that makes Woody special, is he'll never give up on you... ever. He'll be there for you, no matter what.

Oh man, that's a major blow. Really hope he comes around for the series finale, whenever the neck that will be.

If there's a nuclear war, all that will be left is cockroaches and new Simpsons episodes.

In better news, the first 19 seasons are now available in their original aspect ratio AND 16:9 on FXNow.

I tried to watch a season 18 episode last night. The fullscreen presentation is not available in the Apple TV app (yet, fingers crossed they update that FXX app). I tried to watch it on my iPad and they windowboxed it! Ipad's are fullscreen, so you have to watch the episodes shrunk into a tiny box that you can't enlarge. They are also "SD" and are interlaced. It's a step in the right direction, but a far cry from the quality that would have been on a Blu-Ray release.

Doesn't really do any good if FXNow isn't available through your provider. It would have helped soften the blow of no more blu-ray if I could go on and watch whatever episode, but now the only way I can catch seasons 18 + is to catch them when they're on FXX.

I haven't paid a cent for these and will not in the future either if not getting proper Blu-ray's. Not paying anything for digital distribution.

It's still baffling to me that they're going so far with this digital push that they're fully 86'ing any future bluray/DVD releases for the series. First of all, given that each season tends to span between 22 and 25 episodes (with exception of season 1 of course) the cost for digital purchase of each season should be no more than 20 bucks a pop. Forcing us to only have digital options results in consumers losing packaging exclusives and all the bonus features. They want us to go digital, then they meed to give us a reason to. Fact is majority of these seasons are still priced at 40 or 50 bucks each. It's laughable. That kind of money added up could pay for a complete series bluray set down the line. These digital prices need to be adjusted WAY down!

I think they're much more interested in you using the Simpsons World website the next 20 years, rather than owning the show in any form. The streaming future of no ownership means continual subscription and advertising revenues rather than a one-time payment.

Meh, just wait until someone rips their official digital versions and download them.

Yep... this is what many of us cautioned people who seemed to want the end of physical media. We already have digital, that's fine... but I was hoping after Blu-ray we would eventually get SSD or something cheap enough that we could buy movies on those... much smaller physical footprint and you still get a copy... plus they could make different sizes according to content needs.

But if physical copy goes away... expect ownership to go away too... you'll always have to pay to keep watching... and if it is something you like to watch a lot, you'll end up paying more that way by a long shot.

Also... look for more commercials on streaming... if they keep the streaming costs down, they'll want revenue from ads instead... so streaming will become all the things people hate and the physical media will be long gone and people will regret having wished for that day!

I think future generations won't even have a concept of owning media, and therefore won't miss it. Hell, that might be true for today's kids already.
