Something similar happened in the tiny town where I live (Hutto, TX). Someone bought up all the "Busted" magazines. It's the paper that publishes everyone's mugshots when they're arrested in the county.
I took the streaming only option, too. I wasn't using DVDs very much. Well, one thing I've noticed is that shows that I search for are suddenly only offered on DVD, even shows that used to be streaming. Am I crazy? Anyone else have the same experience?
