HD DVD certainly had a case of the Mondays yesterday. Two companies dealt crippling blows to the against-the-ropes format when Netflix announced it was going Blu-Ray exclusive, and then later in the day Best Buy announced it would recommend Blu-Ray to its customers.
Responding to a CNet story, The HD DVD Promotional Group released a brief statement regarding these recent events.
"We have long held the belief that HD DVD is the best format for consumers based on quality and value, and with more than 1 million HD DVD players on the market, it's unfortunate to see Netflix make the decision to only stock Blu-ray titles going forward. While the Best Buy announcement says they will recommend Blu-ray, at least they will continue to carry HD DVD and offer consumers a choice at retail."
