That BD-Live might even have the 40 minutes of deleted scenes on it.

Just ****ing with you. Itís the same ads as every other BD-Live feature. Arenít I cute?

Iíll see what happens with my BD-Live discs.
The Harry Potter thing was a one-off live COmmentary. You could log in on a computer at the same time, and send them questions, and they'd choose which ones they wanted to answer. It was a rather interesting event, especially how your BD's playback was controlled from their end. They went for a toilet break half way through, and paused all the BDs that were playing as part of the event.

The UK Rambo BD had menus that altered depending on what was on BD LIve, which was amazing to me at the time.

I miss BD live. There was some really good stuff on it, such as the Star TRek orginal series, T2, Trick r Treat. Good things now long gone.
Disney always blocked those of us outside the USA from thier BD Live though, which really peeved me off.
I'm surprised companies don't use it to allow access to a weblink or maybe store, showing their releases. Seems like an easy way to reach potential customers.

people think of digital as something free. So like you say "why not?" The problem is that it is not and it is something you need to pay for 24/7 it is something you need to make sure it works when you upgrade machines, software and apply patches . It is expensive and if it is not used enough to make it worth the cost companies don't want to pay for it. It is that simple
