Netflix to go Blu-Ray only

Submitted by: KnightMare @ 01:58 PM | Monday, February 11, 2008 | (url: http://www.reuter...)

what can only be classified as yet another crushing blow to the embattled HD DVD camp, rent-by-mail giant Netflix has just announced its intention to only stock Blu-ray titles in the future. Netflix justified its decision by pointing out the fact that most Hollywood studios seem to be converging solely around the Sony-backed format -- a fact that's all too familiar to Toshiba and friends.

Damn, what a bummer. At least it only cost $98 and I never bought any movies... Maybe now Blu-ray's will come down in price?.... Now Sony can freely ream at will

You're receiving this email because you have asked to receive high-definition movies in the HD DVD format. As you may have heard, most of the major movie studios have recently decided to release their high-definition movies exclusively in the Blu-ray format. In order to provide the best selection of high-definition titles for our members, we have decided to go exclusively with Blu-ray as well.

While we will continue to make our current selection of HD DVD titles available to you for the next several months, we will not be adding additional HD DVD titles or reordering replacements.

Toward the end of February, HD DVDs in your Saved Queue will automatically be changed to standard definition DVDs. Then toward the end of this year, all HD DVDs in your Queue will be changed to standard definition DVDs. Don't worry, we will contact you before this happens.

Please remember, Blu-Ray is the only thing that saved the PS3. If the Blu-Ray lost PS3 would be pretty much a lost cause.

I now predict the XBox 360 built-in DVD drive will be replaced with a Blu-ray drive in 2009.
