Still have a stack of HD-DVDs laying around the house? Want to switch to Blu-ray finally? Finally there is a solution for you!
Although the HD-DVD/Blu-ray war ended over a year ago, there are still a lot of people who didn’t make the switch in formats when Blu-ray won due to the cost involved with purchasing their movies again. Well, Warner Brothers has come up with a solution to help you with finally making the change. Just go to Red2Blu.com and you can arrange to send in the sleeve artwork from your HD-DVDs (original copies only, limit of 1 copy of each film) to them, and for $4.95 you can get the Blu-ray copy of the same film. You pay $6.95 shipping for the entire order ($8.95 in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico) and you should receive your movies in 4 to 5 weeks.
While this is currently limited to Warner Brothers movies only, it isn’t hard to imagine that the other studios will follow suit in the not to distant future. As someone who did go with HD-DVD, I am thrilled with the offer and will be shipping my product sleeves off immediately. I am a bit surprised they allow you to keep the physical movies, but at least I’ll still be able to enjoy them for a while longer.
