Have you ever wondered what format of high-def
is going to support? I have always guessed that they would simply
have both of the disks available to their subscribers. The chief financial officer of Netflix, Barry McCarthy, gave a
bit of insight through the eyes of an industry leader.
He feels that Blu-Ray has already won. They have all
major studios supporting their format with the exception of Universal
. Even Warner
, who sponsors HD DVD pledged to release movies on
both formats. He also expressed his opinion that they are going to be priced at a 20% premium.
reaction: I think he has a great points. Sony does have great support from all but one movie studio and a better
"buzz" surrounding it. There are still the four hurdles
to cross in
order to move high-def movies from, dare I say, our
niche market to mainstream.
