BBC to continue with HD DVD, but porn-makers bolt

January 17th, 2008 · No Comments

The BBC’s home video division says it will continue to release in both HD disc formats, after racking up solid sales with its Planet Earth release. BBC discs are distributed stateside by Warner, which is now exclusively supporting Blu-ray. Adult video maker Digital Playground, however, which blasted Sony for making it difficult to manufacture Blu-ray blue movies last year, and has subsequently released 20 titles in the Toshiba-backed format (including Island Fever 4, Hush and Pirates), now says it will bail on HD DVD. It cites growing independent BD replication and authoring facilities and the emerging PS3 population as reasons for its switcheroo.
