While Constantin Film and senator for the future nor the Blu-ray Disc want to support, keeps cinema world are still on both HD formats. Upon request press officer told Stephanie Fromm box: "World Cinema Home Entertainment is the announced HD-DVDs bring out as planned. A decision on whether future high-definition titles may only be in a format yet to be published, is only at a later date. "


Kinowelt had only a few days, the Terminator 2 Ultimate HD DVD edition announced, according to the information available so far costliest release on HD DVD will be likely. Cinema World sells in Germany next Terminator 2 contains several other titles from the French Studio Canal, which previously only offered on HD DVD.

So basically they'll release the previously announced titles on both formats, then make a decision about whether or not to go exclusive later?


Do we really need to flood the forums with "business as usual, until it's not" threads?

Ummm, there is already such an edition in some country of Europe, I don't remember which. It's MPEG2, however.

The French version is VC1, as is I believe the UK version. The domestic version is released by Lionsgate on Blu-Ray and uses MPEG2. I think Xylon or someone has posted comparison screenshots.

That's no surprise as Kinowelt is now owned by Canal Plus, which itsself belongs to the Vivendi group. As we know Vivendi also owns Universal.

Last I heard, Vivendi sold off all but 20% of their stake in Universal a while back, so I don't think this is accurate.

GE is now the primary shareholder in NBC Universal, not Vivendi.
