Woolworths drop HD-DVD
Woolworths backs blu-ray format over HD-DVD
Monday, 28 January 2008
Woolworths, one of the biggest retailers of DVDs in the UK, has become the first major retailer to solely back one of the new high definition DVD formats.
The high street firm has announced that it will only stock Blu-Ray high definition DVDs from March, with HD-DVDs being dropped from stores to be sold online.
The move comes after Blu-Ray DVDs outsold HD-DVDs by ten-to-one in Woolies stores over Christmas.
From March Woolworths stores will have a Blu-Ray DVD chart in all 820 stores and a Blu-Ray DVD back catalogue section in larger stores.
I guess Woolworths is big in the UK.
I guess Blu-Ray has been even farther ahead in Europe.
