New ‘Dexter’ Blu-ray spoils the finale with ad on the disk

The Consumerist posted a statement from an angry fan who purchased and began watching the most recent season of Showtime’s “Dexter” on Blu-ray DVD.

With every season of the show, there are climaxes and surprises to thrill the audience and keep them coming back for more. According to the article this was spoiled in the promo clip.

“In the case of reader K., that viewing is on DVD. That pivotal scene is the first thing you see, part of a promotional clip for… the very DVD you’ve just sat down to watch. So they’re spoiling something you’ve just rented or purchased, assuming that anyone who buys the DVDs had already watched the last season or failed to avoid spoilers”

Reader K’s letter was posted as well:

 

I bought Dexter season 6 on Bluray because I’m the sort of dork who feels bad about piracy and still buys all my media.

Every time I put in a disk (not first watch, mind you, every… time… ) there is a 3 minute ad for Showtime that I can’t skip and can’t fast forward.

THEY SPOIL THE LAST 30 SECONDS OF THE FINAL EPISODE OF THE FREAKING SHOW IN THAT AD.

Guess that’s what I get for giving them my stupid money instead of stealing… 0_o

Irony.

One fan who actually buys the discs becomes disgruntled, posts the truth about the spoilers and now probably cost Showtime cash in sales.
