HBO Confirms Switch to Blu-ray Exclusivity

Highdefdigest reports, HBO Home Video has fallen in line with parent Warner, confirming that it too will drop HD DVD support in favor of Blu-ray.

HBO Home Video president Henry McGee told the Hollywood Reporter today that the company will be "following the same policy as Warner Home Video" and will no longer release titles on HD DVD.

They are all falling in line. I think in the coming weeks, you'll hear something out of Universal.

This is not representative of other companies falling in line with Warner.

Sure, I expect Universal (and eventually Paramount) to follow suit, HBO is under the Warner umbrella and has not surprised anyone with this announcement.

Warner's defection reasonably guaranteed that its subsidiaries/fellow companies would also go Blu-ray. Same with New Line.
