Buy A Hd-dvd Day

Recommended Posts


The idea is to show support for HD DVD by buying movies on a specific day. There is no better way to show support for HD DVD than by backing it financially. That is the language the movie studios understand best. If there is a strong demand for HD DVD software, then hopefully Blu-ray only studios will at least go neutral.

I'm thinking of grabbing Children of Men or Happy Feet

I understand and appreciate the spirit but I don't really get the point to be honest. Surely long term sales orders from the studios to a number of retailers to keep up with the demands by customers over an extended period is a lot more meaningful than a single day of sales from one retailer. And I know Amazon is popular but is there any reason why we'd want to give them all our orders? I think the other retailers deserve better to be honest.

HDD is looking even better, Brand new HD-E1 $684 + free HD DVD movie from Australian ebay store, price is dropping nicely

HD-E1 $684

Wow, that guy also has Yammy 2700Bs for a ridiculous price and claims he is an authorised dealer with full warranty.

It's a pity that Yamaha won't accept a warranty claim on goods purchased of the 'net.


edit: funnily enough he is not listed as an authorised dealer on the Yamaha website either.

Anyone else support this? Looking at AVS there is a bit of an ordering frenzy

I just ordered:

Spy Game [HD DVD]

The World's Fastest Indian [HD DVD]

Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas (HD DVD)

Children of Men (Combo HD DVD and Standard DVD)

The Good Shepherd [HD DVD]

I would have ordered more but couldn't find anything else, most others I wanted are pre-orders, and will be available around the time I go to the US myself anyway so I'll just grab those then and save shipping.

By last count there were over 320 AVS members who registered support in the thread, and by the looks of things, the average order is 5+, so that should be quite a boost of support, will be interesting to see what comes of it.
