Trans World approves of Warner move
If you haven’t heard of Trans World Entertainment, perhaps you’ve heard of the retail stores they own: f.y.e., Suncoast, Wherehouse and Second Spin. Home Media Magazine (who is now pushing for HD DVD to give up) is reporting Jim Litwak, president and COO of Trans World, is enthusiastic about the future of Blu-ray Disc.
“Finally, the customer has an understanding of where this business is going to go and will not be confused,” Litwak exclaims. If these retailers push the format forward, their consumer will definitely know how to upgrade to high-def. He continues, “Blu-ray becomes the new DVD format, which is particularly exciting. We like that a lot.”
If this trend continues in other retailers, I’m not sure theres anything Toshiba can do to mount a comeback.
