Best Buy to Favour Blu-ray Disc?
We read over at StreetInsider.com that Best Buy is taking a step forward in addressing consumer confusion about high-definition formats.
Beginning in early March, the leading consumer electronics retailer will prominently showcase Blu-ray hardware and software products in its Best Buy retail and online channels in the United States.
"Consumers have told us that they want us to help lead the way. We’ve listened to our customers, and we are responding. Best Buy will recommend Blu-ray as the preferred format," said Brian Dunn, Best Buy’s president and chief operating officer.
Dunn continued, "Best Buy has always believed that the customer will benefit from a widely-accepted single format that would offer advantages such as product compatibility and expanded content choices. Because we believe that Blu-ray is fast emerging as that single format, we have decided to focus on Blu-ray products."
The company noted that it will continue to carry an assortment of HD DVD products for customers who desire to purchase these products.
