Just rec'd an email from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment with a link to a survey.


Kinda strange. Mostly focused on the need for Blu-ray players in the car.

Of interest .

I followed your link and filled out the survey. I can't think of anything more useless than blu-ray in a car/truck, unless it's a portable DVD player with blu-ray.

Very one sided survey.


Hopefully MM will be pulling up to my house soon with wedges of cash and a new 09 Range Rover for me....

I filled it out too. I added a comment that a lower price would induce me to buy more Blu-Ray disks. $25.00 and up is way too expensive for me, especially if it is to replace a title that I have already bought twice in VHS and DVD formats.

Disney probably gets more disc playback in vehicles than any other studio, with all those kids in the back seats of the SUV or minivan. Right now they are trying to figure out how to address this market, by including digital copies or actual DVDs with BD purchases.


All of this costs money and complicates the market. I think they're just trying to figure out what people want and are willing to pay for.

Amazing - they backed the HD media WITHOUT dual-format discs, and NOW they're wondering how to make it work.

Put a SD disc in the box like they did with Sleeping Beauty, or upgrade the Digital Copy concept to allow the user to burn a SD version at home.


Of course, those w/o kids that do not have any need for portability will scream like stuck pigs that they don't want to pay for something that they do not need, and they would be right.


But, the problem for the studios is real, and putting BR players in cars is NOT the answer, IMHO.

But if they give us w/o the attached ankle bitters the option to buy a version of the film without a DC (Wall-E comes to mind), then there'd be nothing to moan about.


Or at least I didn't when I picked up the 3 disc version (although I do agree that being able to burn a SD copy would be good as I'm not a sheep and I don't own an iPod).

Team up with a car manufacturer that has a media player in a car that can use SD cards for playback and can decode the Digital Copy. Include a free 1 GB card which should be big enough to get decent resolution on a 10-12 inch screen in a car, but getting a 16GB card for around $35 would hold enough Digital Copies for a long road trip. I'm a parent looking for a new family car for long trips. If a car company were to jump on this they'd be getting my money most likely.

I got the same thing in the ol' inbox today. Doesn't question #5 kind of smell of desperation? Almost like they're admitting "OK, ok, nobody is buying our movies on Blu-Ray... but how about if you had a player in your car? Huh? How about then? Whattya say pal? Wouldn't you buy more if it was for your car?"


Here are the questions in case the survey gets pulled:


#1 Where do you keep your Blu-ray player(s)? (please select all that apply)


Bedroom

Dedicated Home Theatre Room

Living Room

Other, please specify


# 2 If you were buying a new car/truck, would you consider having a Blu-ray player installed?


# 3 What is the main reason you would be interested in a Blu-ray player in your car?


Increase flexibility of where I can play my Blu-ray Discs

To get the best quality

To help "future-proof" my purchase - buy it now rather than have to replace a DVD player later

Other, please explain


# 4 Would a compelling Blu-ray demo encourage you to consider a Blu-ray player car install?


# 5 If you owned a Bly-ray player in-car/truck, would you be more likely to buy more Blu-ray than DVDs?


# 6 What would motivate you to install a Blu-ray player in your new car/truck?
