‘Slumdog Millionaire’ DVD doesn’t live up to packagingApril 4th, 2009 - 12:23 pm ICT by IANS
London, April 4 (IANS) Thousands of buyers of the DVD of Oscar winning “Slumdog Millionaire” are furious with the content missing from the discs, compared to what was advertised on the packaging.
The movie discs ran into trouble this week as the buyers discovered that the extras, such as the “making of” documentary and deleted scenes, which were advertised on the packaging, were not included, reported contactmusic.com.
The development is a consequence of Fox Home Video’s (a division arm of 20th century Fox that produced the film) newly adopted strategy of removing “extras” from its DVDs sent to rental stores.
So many complaints poured into online sales company Amazon that it posted an alert notice reading: “We are aware that special features were missing from a number of ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ DVDs. Fox has set up a hotline telephone number (1-888-223-4 FOX) for those consumers who may have purchased a version that does not contain special features.
“Upon calling the hotline, these consumers will be able to have their disc replaced for one containing special features. Fox regrets any inconvenience this has caused,” it read.
