HD DVD: Are YOU Accessing Online Content?
Assuming you have all of the necessary components (HD DVD player, Web Enabled Disc, High Speed Internet, Spare Ethernet Cable) accessing online content for your HD DVD discs couldn’t be easier, and yet not every consumer is accessing these features.
The HD DVD promotional group has stated that on average 30% of the HD DVD ownership is accessing the available online features today. This figure, while somewhat small, is actually quite significant considering online connectivity/interactivity features are still in the early stages of development, and it has been less than half a year since the first online title was released, Blood Diamond.
With the Holidays on their way, along with a slew of new titles with fresh interactivity features in tow, we figured we would do our part in strengthening the online HD DVD community. If you would care to do so, please enter your Universal HD DVD ID in the comments below.
We would kindly ask that no comments aside from the User ID information be posted.
If you haven’t registered with Universal yet, you can do so using one of their Web Enabled discs (Heroes, Knocked Up, Evan Almighty), or you can follow this link to their online registration page. Once signed in, head on over to the "Manage Buddies" page and simply send invites to your newfound friends, or confirm those invitations that have already been sent to you.
Why befriend other HD DVD users? Well, following the release of Universal’s The Bourne Ultimatum, and The Kingdom users will be able to bookmark their favorite scenes and, for the first time, share them with their friends. In addition to this new feature, Warner Bros. is slated to debut their brand new community screening feature with Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, which allows users to invite friends to a synchronized screening of the film.
There are a handful of online features that are already available today, and we’re willing to bet that many more are on the way. Until then, join the online community of HD DVD users who are already experiencing all of the advanced interactive features today.
