Budget HD-DVD Player to Include Seven Free HD-DVDs

Blu-ray is an extremely popular HD media format at the moment, mainly because 2.5 million out of the 3 million Blu-ray players out there are PS3s. In an attempt to follow this success streak, the HD-DVD promoters are trying to promote their format by making sure everyone has more than enough HD-DVD movies to go around. When a customer buys a Venturer SHD7001, they get seven free HD-DVD movies. These disks come as a voucher for seven disks, which is redeemable at any store that sells HD-DVDs. This sales event is confirmed in the United Kingdom, and it is very likely that it will soon spread around the world. At the moment, the Venturer HD-DVD player promises to cost under £200, and should become available exclusively through QVC on December 29th.

Venturer Electronics Creates Next Sub-$200 HD-DVD Player

Regardless of how successful Blu-ray and HD-DVD are right now, HD-DVD has almost always had the edge as far as pricepoint goes. Venturer Electronics is proud to continue that legacy with the SHD7000 HD-DVD player. In stores just in time for the holidays, this player is currently $197.88 at Wal-Mart, and will hopefully permeate other stores around the world. While some would argue that the SHD7000 arrived too late, considering the success and low price of the Toshiba HD-A2, current prices say otherwise. While you could get the HD-A2 for as low as $99 during in-store special sales at Wal-Mart, the price is now hovering at around $250. The SHD7000 is nearly identical to the Toshiba HD-A3 HD-DVD player as far as features go, boasting HDMI, 1080i output resolution, and Dolby TrueHD support.Source: DailyTech
