HD-DVD R.I.P.

Toshiba put HD-DVD out of its misery Saturday, February 16th, by confirming that it will cease manufacturing HD-DVD equipment.

As previously reported Warner Brothers had opted to join Disney, Fox, MGM, Lion’s Gate, and of course, Sony, and distribute it’s library only on Blu-ray. In addition, last week, Toshiba's system was dealt more new blows when Netflix said it will no longer carry HD DVDs, with retailers Best Buy and Wal-Mart deciding to discontinue selling the players and discs.

Paramount/DreamWorks and Universal were still producing HD DVD discs, but it was only a matter of time with limited outlets or compatible players in the market.
