Reports are circulating that Warner Brothers has struck a deal with Netflix, Redbox and Blockbuster that would require them to wait 56 days after DVDs go on sale before renting them.

The deal is expected to be announced next week.

Currently, customers must wait 28 days after a movie goes on sale to rent it.
