Blu-ray.com writes: According to reports, manufacturers based in Taiwan have decided to not support the rival CBHD format in China. Citing failures of previous China-based optical disc technologies (EVD) and non-Hollywood supported technology (FVD), they have decided to stick with only supporting Blu-ray, leaving questions as to how long the proprietary format will last.
The technology, which is based off the now defunct HD DVD format, was meant to be a rival high definition format that was owned by China. Since it launched, no Hollywood studios have supported the format, severly limiting the amount of titles available. Additionally, players retail for over $400, meaning that they cost significantly more that similarly featured Blu-ray players.
In other words, manufacturers aren't expecting a format war to break out in China.
