Re: Netflix to Stop Renting Movies on HD DVD Format
I don't understand the business decision based on their metrics point. Did their metrics tell them that no one would want American Gangster or Beowulf in HD? Makes no sense.
Then again, this whole format war makes no sense. At no point was the consumer asked to choose a format based on merits. Instead, content was sewn-up/withheld with no regard for how consumers might best want to access HD content.
We now have a fairly clear winner. Too bad there is not one player out there that is at least 1.1 compliant without audio issues and able to at least bitsream all advanced codecs. Oh happy day.
