Amazon has stopped taking pre-orders of Warner Bros. movies. Amazon recently did the same with publisher Hachette, in the hopes of getting better deals. You can still buy it digitally through Amazon Instant Video, but otherwise users are unable to buy the movie on disc. What is a customer to do?
Instead you’ll get an option only for signing up to be notified when it becomes available. Frankly, customers are getting tired of this nonsense. Just look at the company’s forums. It is clear that Amazon is not making customers very happy at the moment.
As far as the Hachette issue, Amazon explained on its forums, that it was stocking less inventory of Hachette books and taking away the pre-order option. So orders placed would be delayed because Amazon had to order the book from Hachette directly, rather than pulling from its safety stock.
According to the New York Times, Amazon axed(Or took the Hatchette to) pre-orders for Warner Bros. movies about a month ago. The company is keeping quiet about its reasons. The Hachette case was due to “the contract and terms between” the two companies, and that “mutually-acceptable” terms had not been agreed upon. So what is the deal here? The same thing? Stay tuned and we will hopefully find out.
