Default Netflix To Expand Blu-ray Inventory

Online rentailer Netflix says it plans to grow its selection of Blu-ray titles by as much as three-fold in the coming year.

Speaking at the Jeffries 4th Annual Internet Conference in New York on Wednesday, Netflix CFO Barry McCarthy said that his company expects to add as many as 1,500 Blu-ray titles to its existing 400 titles this year.

now that I know they only have 400 copies, I will take most of the blu-ray off my Q and just get the SD versions. I am getting so many titles way down my list, because the top is heavy with Blu-ray. I wish there was a way they
would just send me what they got, instead of having to manually changing it.

There's going to be 1500 titles out by year end? Or is he referring to number of copies per title?

If they don't increase number of copies per title, having more titles means nothing. Right now there's very few BR title's they don't carry.

Let's hope they max out copies and titles... I'd like to see Order of the Phoenix before the series ends.

They'd better not raise the rates on all subscribers...it should just be for BR renters. (They like to pay more anyway.)

It takes 4 weeks to get a new release on BD from Netflix as appose to 2-days from Blockbuster ! Obviously BB orders more copies of a title on BD than Netflix ! I dropped Netflix almost just as fast as Toshiba dropped HD-DVD . Go w/ Blockbuster people!
