Popular internet video rental service, Netflix, has just announced it is dropping HD DVD support. Blu-ray over the past few months has gained the exclusive support of a majority of major Hollywood studios, such as Disney and Warner Bros. The embattled HD DVD format is essentially "dead," and Netflix agrees. According to a report by Reuters, "Netflix said that with such a clear signal from the industry, it will only buy Blu-ray discs going forward and will phase out stock of HD DVD by about the end of the year."
As our friends at Engadget said, "good luck renting an HD DVD." With both Netflix and Blockbuster removing HD DVD from their shelves, it's clear that Sony's movie format has won the war.
