    Well done, Mehar. This should help active DD’ers immensely!

    Thanks, this will actually be a weekly segment as well to compliment the Blu Ray list.

    Wow, nice job, looks like alot of work.

    But why do you include SD Amazon content, but not SD anything else? I assume it has something to do with the affiliate links. ;)

    Ha, no it wasn’t, to my knowledge. We couldn’t find any HD content on their service so we decided to keep it. Its encoded in VC-1 so its kinda applicable….

    I don’t like doing the Unbox numbers that much since it seems like a place where people can dumb their useless elementary school 80s video crap. Plus it seems like Amazon really likes putting up Indie Snuff films which is odd.
