Seems like I skimmed either a post here or an article about how movies get parsed out or something between cable, ppv, netflix, netflix streaming etc. I think it was about how you can pay for all these services and still not have access because of different marketing and licensing agreements that shift around. I don't remember any of the details, just that there were a bunch LOL.
It didn't really apply to me as mostly I just watch TV. I do have a Netflix acct and after doing some random googling and reading about Get Low and Bill Murray I decided I really wanted to see Get Low.
But Netflix doesn't have it. And I can't remember why that would be??? I'm assuming at some point they will?

Ok I maybe answered my own question - is not on DVD yet?

Anyone know when that will happen?

Yes, you have to wait until movies are released before you can watch them. Feb 22nd is the DVD release date so since Netflix has a 4 week delay for certain studios due to new agreements they made it may be available March 22nd.

Yeah, there are a few movies not available on Netflix I'd really like to get-like 1984 and Threads. All in all they do have a good selection though.

Youtube is the only place I've been able to find Threads. I once found it on google video, years ago, but it was horribly edited.

One of my favourite films of the last couple of years, it is on my list to buy and I hope for those people who haven't seen it it gets on Netflix very soon. An absolute gem of a movie which did not seem to get much publicity at all.

Agreed. I ran across it almost by accident and enjoyed every minute of it. Bill Murray was brilliant, and Duvall once again proves he is one of the finest actors working today.
