One of the most anticipated releases for me. I'm hoping Warner reconsiders abandoning the Blu releases and just moves future volumes to Warner Archive like they did with the Forbidden Hollywood series. They have enough cartoons with HD masters on the shelf for another 4-5 volumes.

They could move it to Warner Archive, but it won't make much difference. They have to press them on Blu-ray (due to the incompatibility of certain players to play BD-r, such as the PS4 and Xbox One), and the only real advantage of the DVD Archive program IS the ability to release them on dvd-r. So without the advantage of burned discs, the BD Archive program is actually a joke, a facade.

I have no idea what nonsense you're talking about. The Archive works well for titles that Warner believes wouldn't sell well in a wider release. Instead of printing up tens of thousands of Blu-rays that get unsold at retailers, and are sent back to them, they print up a smaller amount, and sell them directly and through select online retailers. This method is much safer, and can make both them, and us happy. We get the movies/shows we want, they don't lose money on them.

Now something like the Platinum collection seems less likely to become an Archive release because a lot of money goes into restoring these, and it'd be unlikely that they'd recoup that with the select market reach of the Archive program.

I agree with your sentiments 100%. The Archive program is a great way to put out certain film and television titles that will sell well using this method but that would not necessarily generate enough sales through a much wider production method.

It works well for DVD as it enables them to use the flexibility of DVD-r to releases dozens of new movies every month.

The program on Blu-ray has been able to muster perhaps one title per month.
That's not my idea of "working well", especially if they start queuing up TV shows and cartoon shorts along with the catalog movies. Heck, even Twilight Time is able to release 5 movies per month and it's model is even more restrictive as far as distribution goes. With Warner's might and library? It's a joke.

Just because they're not putting out releases at a steady clip does not somehow equate to the program not working. They've actually stepped it up a bit compared to last year, even though it's still not as good as what they originally proposed.

They need to release more through the Archive program. I agree. However, that doesn't mean it is not a good business model.

I think they need to promote more that these releases will be limited to 3,000 units and that they shouldn't promote the idea of them being easily reprinted. This will cause an increase in demand from fans to purchase the releases instead of fans waiting for bigger sales - which is something that occasionally does NOT lead to sales of releases.

There are a few ways they could increase activity on the Archive Blu-ray front and making them become promoted as limited items ala Twilight Time is one way -- perhaps including numbered cards or printing numbers on the cover art would be another.

If you want to help insure other volumes, don't cheap out and wait for a price drop. All studios watch the units sold numbers of the first week, 30 days, and 45 or 60 day numbers. If more people buy in this time frame, it gives a more accurate account of the number of people buying it. Especially catalogue releases. They could care less how many are sold because it hit a certain cheap point unless the number is like millions in a week, months after release. The point is Warner will continue to do these if it benefits them, but we need to show them that.

It's a good business model, but severely limited in its present form. I agree 100% that they should use limited editions like TT does (could be less than 3000 and be flexible), and promote them as such. It works extremely well for TT, so why not them?

only problem is that unless you live in The States, you can't get these unless they changed their policy lately. There are a lot of shows that I would be interested in but most places with the on-demand style won't even sell to Canada.

I am excited for this. I have the first 2 and although I haven't totally watched them, I have watched a lot of the special featues and cartoons so I am thrilled they are doing this. Looney Tunes is so much a part of my life that as I was watching my nephews drama play this weekend, they used the music from Rabbit of Seville and all I could think of was Looney Tunes. Sadly no rabbit walked out on stage.

Sure you can. You may not be able to order direct from WBShop.com or WarnerArchive.com but you can still order then elsewhere. Amazon.com and ScreenArchives.com are two of many sites that sell the Warner Archive Blu-ray releases.
