After Warner Bros. announced on January 4 that they were releasing its content exclusively on Blu-Ray, with the possibly of Paramount joining them, leaving NBC Universal as the only studio exclusively in the HD-DVD camp.
And according to the article, viewers might not want to fork over $300 for a Blu-Ray player but get downloadable HD content from Apple’s iTunes and Amazon’s Unabox instead, not to mention satellite and cable adding more HD choices (just two days ago, Comcast announced it will offer Sci-Fi, TLC, and WCIU in HD to its Chicago-area customers starting later this month.)
Plus, more people are renting DVDs than buying them.
HD-DVD or Blu-Ray? It may be just expensive coasters to some people.
