Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is out on Blu-ray.
There are a few retailer-exclusive editions of the movie, and Target seems to have the best one.
Walmart edition comes with K2SO packaging and 2 Star Wars Galactic Connexions Trading Discs.
Best Buy edition comes in SteelBook case.
If you feel like buying from AmazonSmile, they only have the “regular” version of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
(Your AmazonSmile charity is getting a tiny cut from the sales.)
Now, guess which version I got?
Ars Technica, echoing Variety:
… in light of major US theater chains’ decision to stay away from The Interview, Sony will not do a theatrical release for the film at all.
Sony Pictures definitely errs on the side of caution in the interest of public safety.
This reminds me of the plot of South Park “200” and “201“.
Life sometimes imitates art.

–The Netflix Team
Even at $8.99 per month, Netflix is still a bargain.
Considering that Netflix has recently signed peering deals with Comcast and Verizon, the extra $1 should be justified to Netflix.
