technology Flexplay - The Failed Alternative to Video Rentals

Hello fellow bronies!

Do any of you remember having Flexplay discs in your collection back in the late 2000's? I know that here in Canada we don't have it!

If you don't know what Flexplay is, it's a DVD-Video format that you buy your movie from Staples and watch your movie for a day before the disc becomes unreadable. On the underside of the disc, it starts off Red, but turns Black when you've opened the packaging. And that's unhealthy to the environment if you decide to throw out your unplayable disc! It's also a commercial failure in the United States, and never made it to Europe.

Talk about it here! Technology Connections made a video about the format here:
