Universal Are The Ironic Block To A Universal Next-Gen DVD Format

The Digital Bits have printed an impassioned plee to their readers, requesting that they lobby Universal Home Entertainment. The big issue? Universal are now the only major distributor to be releasing titles on HD-DVD titles but not Blu-Ray. The second that Universal support the format, the war is over. Everything will have come up Blu-Ray, and we can all get on with upgrading with impunity.

Don't forget: in Japan and Australia, the market share held by Blu-Ray dwarfs that of HD-DVD. Just another pointer that the end result is inevitable. Why don't we all speed it up?

The Digital Bits even provided a direct link to a form on Universal's website where you can mail the company. Please do so - but do so politely. Maybe copy your comment here so the rest of us can salvage it for inspiration. And if you fancy snail mail action or a wee chat instead, the address and telephone number are below.

Universal Studios Home Video
70 Universal City Plaza
Universal City, CA 91608
(818) 777-4400

Come on Universal. Don't drag this out unnecessarily.
