This is my point. Advent of the DVD was a profound change into the digital world. But now you are asking consumers to choose 1 or both formats without showing any major difference on their system. For those that care about audio/video quality, yes, HD DVD and Blu-ray are far superior to DVD and HD broadcasts. But it is no where near the difference of going from antenna to cable/satellite or going from VHS to DVD. Consumers will not respond to such a major change in technology without being able to reap some major benefits.
