If you're hoping to rent a copy of "Avatar" through Netflix when the hit movie comes to DVD this month, keep waiting.

Netflix has signed deals with Universal Studios and 20th Century Fox that will delay the arrival of new releases by 28 days. The mail-order rental service already has a similar agreement with Warner Bros.

"Avatar," will be the first new DVD release from 20th Century Fox affected by the deal. The DVD is due on April 22, but won't arrive on Netflix until May 20. Universal's deal will kick off with "It's Complicated," which will arrive on May 25 instead of April 27.

On the bright side, the deal will boost Netflix's catalog of streaming online video, which is free to subscribers. Notably, Fox will bring several TV shows to the streaming service, including all but the current seasons of "24" and "Lie to Me," and the entire series of "Arrested Development" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." The agreement with Universal brings such films as "Gosford Park," "Being John Malkovich" and "Do the Right Thing."   [More...] [Comments...]
