Harry Potter BD ads

I rented the new "Harry Potter" from my local Blockbuster, and it was labelled "rental". I was assaulted by almost 15 minutes of "up front ads" for video games, tv shows, trailers (which I usually like), all in glorious SD, 4:3, DD 2.0! I was unable to forward to the menu  (using a Pansonic BD-55),  and had to sit through all this junk. Is this a new low for Warner? Are the "rental" versions any different from the "purchase" versions? The film, when it finally got rolling, was presented correctly, 2.35:1, Dolby Tru-HD. Anyone else have issues with 15 minutes of this junk??

All that crap is there on the purchased disk. But I can skip through it all with my Oppo BDP-83.
