HD DVD versus Blu Ray Disc


At the beginning of the year, Toshiba announced that it was dropping production of HD DVD drives. Warner Bros. then announced that it would not produce more movies on HD DVD, and the rest have basically followed, generally noting the demise of the ongoing "battle" between HD & Blu-Ray.

The word I got back in the first quarter was that while HD players that were already out there would continue to play the existing movies, but that new movies should be expected to come out only on Blu-Ray. It is very much like the long-ago battle between VHS & Beta on videotape formats.

It is not good news for those who purchased HD drives / players, but obviously there is no way for the consumer to affect this movement. As for movies that were exclusively produced on HD DVD, the decision as to reproduction on Blu-Ray will obviously be another uncontrollable decision made by the responsible corporation. It will likely depend on the perceived level of consumer demand for each individual product, and whether they think that enough people will purchase another copy (probably even more costly) of the same movie.

On the other hand, if you have HD DVD movies and a player, they should continue to play for you just as they have from the beginning. But when they inevitably stop, break, wear out, etc., it will mean Blu-Ray replacement if you still desire that type of content. If you have a relatively recent purchase, most of the retailers have some type of policy for return/replacement following the announcement of the discontinuation of HD DVD. Others, particularly drive manufacturers, have stated that they will support the drives through the published warranty periods (and some may even be gracious enough to extend them), but that further updates/upgrades will not be made. It might be worthwhile for you to check this out if you want to pursue potential reimbursement or other action.

HD movie player


Greetings moseracc,

If the box sets are HD DVD, then you will need an HD DVD player for them play on. Some stores may still carry players in this format however a few months ago, the switch in the industry was made to the Blu-Ray format.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy

Dvd player, hd dvd movies


If this is just a regular DVD player, then no. You need an HD DVD player to play HD DVD discs. Now the HD DVD players should play regular DVD discs.
