Get your 5 free Blu-ray Disc movies

Get your 5 free Blu-ray Disc movies
The Blu-ray Disc Association will soon be unveiling a new mail-in offer that provides US consumers with the opportunity to receive 5 free Blu-ray Disc movies with the purchase of select Blu-ray standalone players or the Sony PS3 gaming console.

This mail-in offer will be starting on July 1st and runs through September 30th. Rumor is that the offer can also be combined with other existing Blu-ray promos, such as the 5 free Blu-ray movies that are included in the Panasonic DMP-BD10A standalone player. The online home for this offer is bluraysavings.com and the site should be launching within the next few days.

Bluray5FreeMovies

This offer is limited to a select number of Blu-ray titles and you can only choose one title from each of 5 categories. The categories are divided by movie studio and contain the following options.

Category 1 (Buena Vista) includes The Guardian, Pearl Harbor, Invincible and Chicken Little.

Category 2 (Warner) includes Corpse Bride, Phantom of the Opera and Blazing Saddles.

Category 3 (Sony) includes Stealth, Resident Evil 2, Underworld Evolution and Stir of Echoes.

Category 4 (Paramount) includes The Italian Job, Black Rain, Babel and Devil’s Rejects.

Category 5 (Fox) includes Kiss of the Dragon, Omen 666, The Transporter 2, Species, Hart’s War and The Last Waltz.

A response to HD DVD’s 5 free movie offer

This latest Blu-ray promo is strikingly similar to the 5 free HD DVD’s with the purchase of an HD DVD player promo that is being offered by Toshiba. Toshiba first started offering 3 free HD DVD’s after mail-in and more recently increased the amount to 5. Whether or not this is a response to the HD DVD promo, the 5 free Blu-ray movies make it even more enticing for consumers to pick up a Blu-ray player this summer.

What about BD-J?

The Blu-ray Disc Association is requiring all Blu-ray players launched past October 31st to support the full BD-J specifications as well as include additional hardware that is not found in most of the current Blu-ray standalone players. Considering this mandate, this 5 free movies promotion could also be designed to help move the current Blu-ray standalone players that will soon become “out of spec”. With that said, the PS3 already has an extremely powerful set of hardware and is probably (still) the best Blu-ray player available. Due to this, I can only recommend the PS3 as a Blu-ray player at this time. More discussion of this offer can be found on HighDefDigest and CDRLabs.

    Recently we purchased a blu ray Sony player. We were told there was an offer for 5 free discs and even though the offer had expired the Disney corporation would honor the offer. Please let me know the details and get the rebate form. Thank you very much
