Re: Blockbuster To Push Blu-ray Starting This July
Can you say the War's not over till the Fat lady sings. Sony hasn't won one of these yet. Blockbuster has it s own war with Netflix and they are getting their butt kicked there. Revenues are down. the CFO is leaving the CEO is leaving at year end. Stock is at like 4 bucks and Netflix is around 20.
Still too early to call. I've been reading a couple things in the forums and the new cheaper $499 Sony player doesnt have an ethernet port like the new and i just saw at Circuit City Toshiba HD player for $299 with 5 free titles so it wont be able to meet the new blu ray requirements for picture in picture specials and such or get new firmware upgrades unless they are shipped on a disk i guess.
Point is it s still a wait and see world for most of us. What if Netflix said we choose HD just to **** off Blockbuster
