    I think we all knew this was coming but the real publicity is starting. From MediaBuyerPlanner:
    The thing is Netflix CEO praised this system in his quarterly conference call. From the original Wall Street Journal article:

    I think this a good option for those who want to use it, but I still don't see DVD or BRD media going away anytime soon. For one thing, you can't put very many movies on portable devices, at least not with BRD or even DVD quality. If you have to rely on an Internet connection, then that's going to be a problem if it goes down or ISP's "throttle" bandwidth. And just because Disney is on this bandwagon doesn't mean it's going to be successful. Remember FlexPlay, the self-destructing 48-hour discs?

    Echo's of the origin DiVX model.

    And in the same regard, what happens when that company goes out of business? (not saying Disney, but others that might join in).
    And there is no one to validate the access rights, similar to a lot of software packages that used online validation and those servers don't exist to validate keys anymore.
