We made our bed with Blu-ray because we
believed more in that format for a variety of reasons; some technical
in nature, some due to the fact that it simply had broader support from
a variety of industries, notably the motion picture studios but also
what I’ll call the consumer electronics and the tech industry.
What we are seeing lately is that sales of Blu-ray discs are
outpacing HD discs by at least two to one. As more quality Blu-ray
product comes on the market, which is going to happen, notably with
Pirates on May 22, we actually believe that the difference or the
advantage of Blu-ray is only going to widen.
I guess that’s as clear a sign as we can get from Iger that Disney fans should be investing in Blu-ray. If you plan to switch to Blu-ray when do you think you’ll buy your first player?
