What's more, our source says that Netflix and Wal-Mart were aware of HD DVD's impending official death, and rather than allow a long and drawn out withdrawal from the market that could burn customers, those companies chose to broadcast their intentions to the marketplace immediately. This puts pressure on Toshiba and its partners to exit the business without spending months trying to unload product that's essentially already obsolete.

It looks like Toshiba was ready to draw it out as long as it could so they could dump stock but Netflix & Wal-Mart busted them on it.
Certainly not to rub salt but this coming from the company all the HD DVD fans said has always been doing this format for the customer and has always put the customers needs first.
