Netflix Joins Blu-ray Camp In High-def Format War

moonboy moonboy writes  |  more than 6 years ago

moonboy writes "From the article at Money.CNN.com, "The HD-DVD format took another blow Monday as online video-rental giant Netflix pledged to offer high-definition DVD's only in the rival Blu-ray format, and retailer Best Buy said it would recommend Blu-ray to its customers."
"In a statement, Netflix (NFLX) said it based its decision on the fact that four of the six major studios are going give exclusive backing to Blu-ray, made by Sony (SNE). It plans to phase out its offering of HD-DVD disks, from Toshiba , by the end of the year."
"The move by Netflix follows a similar move by rival Blockbuster (BBI), which announced its support of Blu-ray last summer.""
