Default FINANCIAL TIMES/FT.COM: HD DVD takes lead in Europe

Aficionados of European cinema who would like to watch films such as Roberto Benigni's award-winning The Tiger and the Snow in high definition, may, for the time being at least, have to buy a HD-DVD player rather than a Blu-Ray Disc machine.

A number of European independent film studios and DVD production companies are opting for Toshiba's HD-DVD format over the rival Sony technology, thanks to a strong support programme by the HD-DVD camp and concerns over the price of Blu-Ray technology.
Looks like the high costs of BD replication is costing Blu-Ray the indie Euro studios just like it cost them many of the indie studios in the US. Difference being that indie studios appear to be more important in the European market than the US. Good news for HD DVD fans especially with the launch of the PS3 in European markets happening a few weeks ago.
