German Distributor Highlight Video to Become Blu-ray Exclusive

highlightvid.thumbnail.jpgWhile my German is not great, this article at Cinefacts apparently says that German distributor Highlight Video will become Blu-ray exclusive.

Starting March 1st, the distributor will only release new titles in Blu-ray format and will also cease production of HD DVD titles currently in circulation.

It appears that the Warner decision to drop HD DVD was a major factor in this move.

Highlight Video has some titles on HD DVD that are Blu-ray exclusive in the USA – now might be a good time to grab these titles if you want them on HD DVD.

    What have they released?

    Probably most notably for HD DVD fans, Fantastic Four – Rise of the Silver Surfer [HD DVD] and Fantastic Four [HD DVD].

    I am not sure if there are also HD DVD exclusives that were released by them on BD – if there are, those will remain available of course…

    ‘Lissi und der wilder Kaiser’ – apparently it will be the first ‘BD only’ release.
