Why hasn’t streaming services added DVD features like commentary, select a scene, bloopers, deleted scenes, and all the other cool stuff?

  1. Some do, but it’s mostly about the release.

    ​

    One of the streaming services, forget which, had Suicide Squad on, the first one, had the Extended Edition and bonus content on the end, was like 5 hours in total.

    ​

    Just think it’s hard to get them to work right unless they do just shove everything after the credits.

    ​

    But I also feel it’s to have physical releases having something special over digital releases, and that’s why a majority don’t have bonus stuff on after the fact, but I’m not sure.

    ​

    Select a scene is a very important feature I would like for sure, more so for the longer films.

  2. A lot of movies from Apple have Extras. Just as an example, I got the original Alien in HD and later they remastered to 4K, added multiple commentary tracks, director’s cut and even a collection of shorts to celebrate the movie’s anniversary. Edited to add: Netflix has the original version of Hateful Eight and then a 4-part recut version that is even longer.
