They stated that they nolonger will buy/stock new HD-DVD Movies and in time they will elimate their current stock before the end of the year. Looks like its getting closer to just throwing HD-DVD in the closest with betamax and forget it ever happened.

Mind you that Blockbuster has also went with Blu-Ray...

Same could've been said for DVD back in the day. Once HD technology proliferates further throughout the market prices should drop with increased demand and supply.

I guess that confirms it then.

Already have an HD-DVD player but I guess I should start looking for a good Bluray player :o

yes because every player manufacturer shares their profits... there is still plenty of compitition within the hardware manufacturers. You can expect more drops in prices actually since more hardware manufacturers will be jumping aboard to get in. Right now it's mainly the big companies, not the budget ones...

Owell its done. I hope I can pick up some good HD DVD's on sale and wait a long while for blu-ray to get a cheaper player.

Dear Drew,

You're receiving this email because you have asked to receive high-definition movies in the HD DVD format. As you may have heard, most of the major movie studios have recently decided to release their high-definition movies exclusively in the Blu-ray format. In order to provide the best selection of high-definition titles for our members, we have decided to go exclusively with Blu-ray as well.

While we will continue to make our current selection of HD DVD titles available to you for the next several months, we will not be adding additional HD DVD titles or reordering replacements.

Toward the end of February, HD DVDs in your Saved Queue will automatically be changed to standard definition DVDs. Then toward the end of this year, all HD DVDs in your Queue will be changed to standard definition DVDs. Don't worry, we will contact you before this happens.

You can click here to change your format preferences.

We're sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please call us at 1 (888) 638-3549.
