Patience. It's just a matter of time.

It's been there since CES 2006. Universal is not supporting BR. They confirmed that in a press release last week.

Yeah, just like how HD-DVD outsold BR for months and months and BR is just not starting to become even with HD-DVD sales. Yeah, just like that

Warner Bros. is on the BDA board of directors but they produce both Blu ray and HD DVD movies.

Yes, but they are also members of the North American HD DVD Promotion Group. A group that they helped contribute their share of a 150 Million Dollar purse to.



Besides that stupid Universal music sign is just PR crap to make people think that the BDA has the support of every major studio including Universal studios.

The last history I recall was when science fiction became a reality, (i.e. BD50) and now......... a commoner and commoner reality.



History tends to repeat itself.


Tuck this thread away somewhere for safe keeping and a good laugh.

Of course, now it's only going to be single layer on the WB Total HD, but lets not go there.

One step ahead of ya!!!



This is going to "one for the ages". I can only imagine how good a laugh it will be for some insiders as well.

I think Blu Ray is a great medium, but Universal sunk a lot of money into HD DVD and it would be stupid of them to abandon the format so early.


If they do support both, it will be more like a few years instead of a few months.




But, he is not just on the board, he is the Chairman of the Board for the HD DVD promo group, he has a lot at stake when it comes to HD DVD.
