Angry So frustrating

Hi
On most of the blu-ray Movies that I have I have to Watch all the Previews. Before I can play the Movie itself Why? When I press disc menu. or Title menu on my Remote controller. I get Not available.

I agree. Once we've bought the movie...let us watch the damn movie. I don't have a problem with them including previews on the disc, but having to skip over 6 previews before you're allowed to get to the menu is annoying. You should be able to press the menu button and go there once the previews start playing.

Indeed. This is extremely frustrating. I usually use the forward skip button. You have to skip them one at a time, but I'd say this works on a majority of Blu-rays. The real infuriating thing is watching a commercial for Blu-ray while watching a Blu-ray. I know how good they are, that's why I buy them! Sony, I'm looking at you!

Indeed, 8 years into the format, 6 since it beat out HD DVD and we still have to learn about the many benifits of Blu Ray.

Yes life is Rough Isn't El Bicho When you pay anywhere from $7.99 to $30 Dollars for a Single blu-ray Disc or Anywhere from $65 to $ 200 Dollars for blu-ray box set. They should give you an option to go Right to the menu And click on play Movie.

Somewhere out there, an orphan suffering from Leukemia is being molested. Nearby, an OBGYN is taking pictures of his underage patients and putting them online. Who cares, man, my Hotel Transylvania disc has pre-menu trailers! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!

Hmmm, either I hit my "menu" button to go to the main menu...and if that doesn't work, I just jam on the "skip forward" button till I'm at the main menu.

In fact, I've had DVDs where I couldn't skip forward, but only fast foward through the previews. So in fact, the Blu-Rays are more convenient.
