Disney treads in dangerous waters
from the I-like-previews,-but-give-me-a-break dept
Disney is forcing owners of the Tarzan DVD to sit through minutes of previews with no way to skip them. As a Disney shareholder, I’m all for the marketing technique. As a consumer, however, there is no excuse for this type of behavior. If I can skip the previews on a VHS tape, I should be able to skip them on a DVD.

not worse than VHS
According to the article, you can still fast forward through the commercials, just like VHS… they just don’t give you the menu option to completely skip the stuff.
What's the quality like?
I’ve heard many bad things about Disney’s DVDs for their older films like 101 Dalmations. Image quality is inferior for a DVD, supposedly (like they encoded from a VHS master).
Pity, I liked 101 Dalmations…
Disney sux. They *were* cool, aladin, little mermaids [do they clean?].
You can fast forward…..true, but 4 mins of commercials, that is 240 seconds….at 4x speed, that is still 60 seconds of commercials going buy w/o audio. ….arg. No thx. I have not yet seen it….and now I dont want to. FBI is cool, they let me live. :] and I have memorized their warning…. [if you have a cool dvd that does 8x…that is 30 secs of ‘frames’. bummer]
