Compensate for lost sales by cancelling their BD library, compensate for the 10s of thousands of Blades of Glory BD's that were already pressed and sitting in stores. It's a business deal. Money is always involved. Same reason 21st and Disney "support" BD, same reason Target "supports" BD, same reason Blockbuster "supports" BD.
