Default Re: Netflix to Stop Renting Movies on HD DVD Format

Like I said it's speculative and it's not about single specific titles or individual customer preferences. It would be about percentages and cost per unit. Netflix needs to make money, like any other business, so if their metrics are saying Format X's discs aren't renting, are taking up shelf space, and/or costing too much per unit based on lack of rentals, then they're going to drop Format X. It's simple supply and demand.
