Fox to strip special features from rental DVDs

20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will now start selling two versions of its regular DVDS, one with all the standard special features we've come to expect, and one with just the movie and trailers to be sold to rental shops like Blockbuster. Variety explains:

The configurations vary by title. "Marley & Me," for example, has special features on both the retail and rental DVDs. The "Marley" Blu-ray also carries bonus features, but the retail Blu-ray is a combo pack with a DVD movie and digital copy.

I hope this does not affect Netflix. I often rent a movie from them just to watch the special features.
