Netflix goes Blu-ray

Feb. 11, 2008by:

Netflix Score another one for Blu-ray, folks! Online renting giant Netflix has decided, after realizing four of the six major studios have publicly gotten on the Blu-ray bandwagon, that it may be prudent to jump on board as well and say a nice "fuck you" to HD-DVD. They plan to stock only Blu-ray for their HD loving customers and will phase out HD-DVD by the end of the year. They may also want to actually stock up on Blu-ray discs as some folks have been waiting several months to get the Blu-ray discs on their queue. Switching solely to Netflix? Good. Not having enough actual Blu-ray discs? Bad. So how's about you get on that, Netflix? Mmk? Poor, poor HD-DVD. It must be crying itself to sleep at night in anticipation of its final death blow. Vaya con Dios, HD-DVD.

Wait until the war is over!

I'm not going to bother to buy an hi def DVD until they settle on one format, which will hopefully be within the next year or so. Hopefully that happens before I get my first HDTV.

Get A PS3!

For those of you looking to get a Blu-Ray player get a PLAYSTATION 3! It already has a Blu-Ray player built in plus, it a video game system as well.

Time for a little something called Ebay.
There is always someone out there that doesn't get any updates and think HD is the future....

ugh.

As a long time Netflix subscriber this really irks me. Having just received an HD DVD player for Christmas, my options seem to be getting slimmer and slimmer. :(

Well, damn. Looks like Sony might actually win. Not that I entirely give a shit, since I'm still quite content with standard DVDs, but I'd have certainly preferred that HD-DVD emerge victorious. Oh, well.
