Netflix to go Blu-ray exclusive and discontinue HD DVD on December 15th

The Format War is done; it has been for a while. Netflix officially stopped buying new HD DVDs back in February ’08 and starting on December 15th, the company will no longer be shipping ’em out either marking Blu-ray’s exclusive reign. Any HD DVDs remaining in subscriber’s queues will simply be replaced with standard DVDs. No word on what Netflix is doing with the soon to be defunct high-def discs, but hopefully they will be up for sale sometime down the road. I’m sure a bunch of early adopters would appreciate the gesture and discount on the discs.
