Philips and DivX get down like two flat tires

DivX seems to be recovering nicely from the fall of Stage6, inking a deal with Philips to make sure a "wide variety" of its consumer electronics devices will be compatible with the format. The two year license agreement applies to DVD players, TVs and Blu-ray players -- the upcoming Bonus View-enabled BDP7200 is not mentioned -- and in light of a similar agreement with Panasonic should continue to increase the amount of DivX Certified equipment available in the near future.
