I got a nice little letter delivered to my in box today from netflix....
"We're Going Blu-ray
You're receiving this email because you have asked to receive high-definition movies in the HD DVD format. As you may have heard, most of the major movie studios have recently decided to release their high-definition movies exclusively in the Blu-ray format. In order to provide the best selection of high-definition titles for our members, we have decided to go exclusively with Blu-ray as well.
While we will continue to make our current selection of HD DVD titles available to you for the next several months, we will not be adding additional HD DVD titles or reordering replacements.
Toward the end of February, HD DVDs in your Saved Queue will automatically be changed to standard definition DVDs. Then toward the end of this year, all HD DVDs in your Queue will be changed to standard definition DVDs. Don't worry, we will contact you before this happens...."
Awesome. In reality the only reason I bought the HD-DVD player was because of the mass amounts of freebies I could get. But now it seems all for naught. I may have to break down and finally buy a PS3...
Where did HD DVD go wrong? read
