Warner Bros. offers HD-DVD to Blu-Ray exchange

Warner Bros. is offering HD-DVD owners an extra Blu-Ray copy of any HD-DVD discs they own in exchange for a small fee ($4.95 per disc, plus $6.95 in shipping and handling).
If you head on over to the Red2Blu site, you’ll have access to Warner Bros.’ HD-DVD collection. Choose the discs you want Blu-Ray copies of, then mail in the sleeve only of each HD-DVD (keep the disc!) and you’ll get a brand spanking new Blu-Ray to put next to that HD-DVD copy on your shelf. A few restrictions apply: This offer is only available in the U.S., and you can only replace up to 25 discs. Download this PDF to see all the rules.

Blu-ray Q1 sales nearly double in 2009

About 9 million units sold so far this year.

Blu-ray Disc keeps growing despite tough economic times, nearly doubling its year to date 2009 sales over the same frame in 2008, according to Adams Media Research. About 9 million high-definition units sold in the U.S. from January through March, up from the 4.8 million that sold during first-quarter 2008, according to Adams. Additionally, Adams reports that there are now 10.5 million Blu-ray households, encompassing owners of both Blu-ray set-tops and Blu-ray-enabled PlayStation 3s.

“We are delighted to see continuing, significant growth of the Blu-ray Disc format in the midst of one of the worst economic downturns in recent memory,” said Andy Parsons, U.S. chairman of the Blu-ray Disc Assn. Promotions Committee and senior VP of product planning at Pioneer Home Entertainment. “I think the numbers are a clear indicator that consumers really do understand the value of packaged media, and that even when times are very tough, [consumers] continue to seek out and enjoy the best possible high-definition content.”
