HD DVD PG responds to Netflix & Bestbuy news
“We have long held the belief that HD DVD is the best format for consumers based on quality and value, and with more than 1 million HD DVD players on the market, it’s unfortunate to see Netflix make the decision to only stock Blu-ray titles going forward. While the Best Buy announcement says they will recommend Blu-ray, at least they will continue to carry HD DVD and offer consumers a choice at retail.”
Talk about terrible PR
This has got to be one of the weakest ‘responses’ from a PR group that I have ever seen. “At least” Bestbuy will continue to carry HD DVD? Give me a freaking break! The HD DVD PG would have done better in keeping their mouths’ shut. This non-rebuttal seems to suggest that HD DVD has all but thrown in the towel as they have nothing substantial to respond with and nothing positive to shine a light on. As the Blu-ray Disc Associations’ new marketing campaign states; “The future is Blu”.
