Eventually an HD format will replace DVD

Ben Drawbaugh

Sometimes after reading an article you find yourself wondering how it's related to the headline. While this article over at MovieWeb is one of them, we tend to agree; eventually DVDs will be replaced by an HD format. The reason is simple, all the players in both competing formats can play DVDs. Previous formats can't say the same: LD, VHS, and Beta were all very incompatible with each other. Eventually either HD DVD or Blu-ray players will be so inexpensive that consumers won't even consider a regular ol' DVD player. Sure, this is some time off, and by then downloadable content may be more of an option, but all those old DVDs aren't going anywhere. In a few years when mom's old player goes out and she's forced to buy a new one, she'll probably pick up an HD version and not even know it.
