Netflix to stop offering HD DVD titles on Dec. 15th

Netflix now BD exclusive

Netflix recently informed its subscribers that, starting on December 15th, it would stop shipping movies on the HD DVD high-definition format. This is the final move in the company's backing of the winning HD format, Blu-ray, after Netflix announced back in February that it would stop purchasing movies recorded on the HD DVD format. In the letter to its subscribers, Netflix told them any current HD DVD title will be substituted with the same movie on standard DVD as of December 15th, making the transition seamless and not requiring them to take any actions.

The so-called high-definition format war concluded early in 2008, soon after Warner Brothers studios announced it would will support the Blu-ray format exclusively. Netflix has not announced whether it will sell its stockpile of HD DVD movies. [via CrunchGear]
