Arrow: Please continue to operate, shelf stackers the world over are shaming you, in contact with the public every day, getting shouted at. You're in a controlled environment.
I can't speak for this release or indeed for Arrow in general, but it's not at all hard to see how current or future restrictions could impact on the manufacturing process. I understand that California-based firms are now facing significant scheduling challenges, and while I don't think this has happened in central Europe yet (where the vast majority of British-label BDs are pressed), if there were larger-scale lockdowns in, say, Austria, the Czech Republic and/or Poland, there could well be delays that will be completely beyond the label's control.

And while some labels have staff that have worked from home for years (the coronavirus situation has had startlingly little impact on me personally), others haven't, and there's inevitably going to be an adjustment process in some cases. For instance, if your home broadband is substantially slower than what you're used to at work... well, I routinely transmit and receive files of dozens and sometimes hundreds of gigabytes (one of the masters I'm currently working on is half a terabyte, which was delivered to me electronically!), so it's easy to see how something as simple as that can significantly slow things down.

Amazon delivery is focussing on what is considered important to people's wellbeing. I remember them putting that statement out a while ago. I know many mail men would rather only be delivery important items as well.
so my guess is that dvds are pushed back until they have a better handle on things.

Amazon are a lore unto themselves. I ordered The Faceless Ones from them last Monday and was told at check out it would be early April when delivered. I had no issue with that. It turned up two days after ordering.

some weird things happening with deliveries. my son was using Royal Mail tracking for delivery for a Mother's Day present. it said on his phone that it would arrive at 10:30. he was in the house waiting for it and the status changed to 'delivered' 10:26. nothing had arrived. he checked outside and behind the bins - nothing there!

This virus hasn't slowed the post down as far as i can tell, i've had things from Music Magpie arrive two days after dispatch this week so you shouldn't have to wait too long for it to arrive.

No post for weeks. But that might just be High Wycombe, makes Deliverance look like the Brady Bunch!

Inbreeding: standard stuff in the country!
