Nety:
ilovemusic: Tried Fatso and found the service relatively expedient but their range isn't that extensive plus they don't send out the original slicks that accompany BDs.


I find it supprising that you would say their range is not that extensive.. would like to know where you can get a better range cause my local video store is way way behind fatso for range and they compare fairly well to most video stores.

That said if you like to watch new releases when they come out fatso is not for you. They often seem to not get new releases until a while after the video stores and even then it could be a couple of months before you get a copy in your hand.


Yeah i would have to agree with you in range, every movie that i have liked to get on bluray has been available from fatso, havn't came accross a single problem and now they have fast post both ways so the time between disks is even faster.

In regards to not getting the original cases for the blurays, all the video shops in my area don't supply original cases apart from when viewing them in store so i don't see it as any different

Haven't used Faso for a while but did find a couple of years ago getting BD was a bit hit and miss and demand seemed tooutstrip supply, no problem getting DVD's through them though.

I have found LynnMall's Video Easy to have a good and increasing BD range. They seem to have at least one ot two BD versions of every one of their new releases.

Probably because Sky own Fatso and they want you to pay for it on PPV or On Demand first, then maybe pay again and rent it later from Fatso.
