Here comes the Blu-Rays
April 17, 2006
After noting the Enhance TimeWarner faux showdown, I just have to highlight the smartness of Sony during the troubled management times at TW.
Sony swooped into pick up the majority of US movie assets after TW continually bungled the deal. Sony now seems own the relationship of movie studios ensuring content goes to BluRay formats and not the competition Toshiba HD format.
The BluRay disc system which will be included in the PlayStation 3.
I'll post more how I see this panning out later, but I suspect, if Sony sort out the house, they'll be delivering more media faster and cheaper than internet video providers. A HD disc with 9 movies at broadcast quality with next day delivery in a tidy box is sweeter than 5 days of downloading and storing for domestic technology users…
