Lawsuit Filed Over Netflix/Warner 28-Day Waiting Period

Is anyone really surprised it came to this? A Netflix subscriber isn’t happy about having to wait 28 days for Warner Home Video movies to be made available on the video delivery service, so she’s filed a class action lawsuit.

The plaintiff contends that a deal announced in January between Netflix and Warner that forbids Netflix from sending out any of the studio’s new releases for the first 28 days of its release is a “scheme to restrain trade.” She also states that, by not making available a number of high-profile new releases, her Netflix account has been devalued by the agreement.
