I got my copy from Amazon yesterday, NO subs on the interview on the SBD disc. Ugh.

Could it be player dependent? Mine has the subs on the interview, and I pre-ordered mine.

It is strange. I ordered mine from Amazon back in August and it was delivered in early September. My copy had the subtitles. Not sure why later copies wouldn't.

I doubt it? How do they work on the corrected disc? Are they "burned in," or are they able to be turned off? My disc just doesn't seem to have a sub track at all (nothing happens with pressing the subtitle button on that feature; works on every other disc I've ever used with subtitles available) and there's certainly nothing burned in.

I'm sure there are plenty of packages out there with the uncorrected disc included. Amazon, and other retailers more than likely has a mix of both corrected and uncorrected. I think ordering direct from Arrow is still likely the safest bet to getting a correct disc.

I received my copy from Rarewaves a couple of days ago and the subs were there.

No, the defective disc just doesn't have any Subtitle encode for the Interview on the disc at all. I tried it in 4 players, and scanning the disc with BDInfo also confirmed there was no Subtitle on the Interview.

The corrected disc has a later authoring date and a different Disc ID.

Not sure how they got these so early, but I got my copy from Grindhouse Video back in early July and it of course does not have the subtitles. Not sure if I'm gonna jump through the hoops to get a replacement for it.

Same. I keep waiting for some easy way to request a replacement/some public acknowledgement of the problem. Based on what Iím reading, Iím not really interested in jumping through the hoops of contacting Arrow CSRs by website/email and trying to convince them of a problem that most of them arenít aware of existing, and I donít have Facebook/other social media accounts to contact them that way.

Packaging is goofy on this one. A very flimsy slip over a hard box. A recipe for disaster when ordering from Amazon.

Contacted Arrow via their website early Tuesday morning, got the replacement disc (from MVD) this evening.




I thought folks said using the website contact was hard.


It's properly sealed too (not shrinkwrapped) with a label on the back. I'm guessing they have them ready for customers who recognize the subtitle error, after proof of purchase.

That reminds me, I forgot to do that. I just tried contacting them through their website. I don't see it as straightforward, unless you bought it from them. I chose "I have an issue with the quality of the product" and then said what the problem was and that I'd gotten it from Amazon, I guess we'll see what happens after that.

I got mine from Target (B2G1).

I don't think it matters which category you choose.

You could try replying back, and politely disagree. There are probably social media posts directly from Arrow to confirm the "defected" product, and heck, you can even send them my pic above and say "a friend" got the replacement disc.

Good idea, I'll try that. Thanks!

EDIT: Dang, after looking through their twitter I don't see a single post from them about this issue. I guess I could look at their facebook, but that sounds like a probable dead end. I'll send your picture maybe!

After getting funneled to another rep, they acknowledged that there was an issue, and after a third, they asked for the sku and proof of purchase, so guess I'll finally get it! Oof. They must have this in some secret off-the-books list of product replacement plans.

Jesus Christ. After uploading all the crap that one person asked for, I sent an Amazon invoice, to which I got THIS response.

Hello,

Thank you for getting in touch.

I am truly sorry for the inconvenience around this.

Due to this being a separate provider with no business relation to us

Amazon need to be contacted directly has this is Arrow Films, I'm truly sorry about this.

If there is anything else that we can do, then please do not hesitate to get in touch and a member of our team will be happy to help.

Kind regards,

Promise

Arrow Films Customer Service Team
Insane. Amazon's not going to do anything about this, this is completely an Arrow problem. What do I do here? Do I have to make a Twitter account and spam them in a place where they get publicly shamed into doing something, or what?
