Fox's Rental DVDs Will Be Crippled, Lack Special Features

Fox plans to make two classes of discs, one version for retail and another, crippled, version for rental stores.

For example, Slumdog Millionaire's retail DVD will have deleted scenes and commentary, but the rental will not. It will have the movie (obviously) and trailers (why would they take out ads?). On the other hand, Blu-ray discs will be the same in both version, but lack the digital copy that you can import to your computer.

Each movie will be different. Marley & Me, that movie starring a dog or something, will have special features on both editions. Fortunately enough, rental chains can go to retailers, buy that version, and rent those. But we doubt many customers will really care either way once they get the disc home. [Variety via BBG]
