Total HD Delayed: 2008

During CES of 2007 Warner announced Total HD, a disc that holds both HD-DVD and Blu-ray formats. Today, Warner has had to admit that Total HD discs won’t be available this year, contrary to what was announced at CES. No new release date has been given, but we hear they are aiming for early 2008. No reason for the delay has been given, we suspect it is down to technical difficulties creating the disc sandwich, or they are waiting to see if a clear HD disc format will win.
Until the release of Total H, Warner promises to continue to release title on both HD formats, and believes that “There is no expiration date on the viability of this concept.”
