Warner Bros. Chooses Blu-Ray for HD DVD Releases

In a press release yesterday, Warner Bros. announced that their movies will be exclusively on Blu-Ray high definition discs starting in May 2008. Currently, all five Potter films are available in HD-DVD and Blu-Ray formats. All of Warner Bros.’ movies will continue to be released on standard DVD.

Because of Warner Bros.’ announcement, Sony’s Blu-Ray format is dominating the high-definition market. Most major movie studios are now exclusive to it, and the competing HD-DVD format is likely to disappear soon.
