Default BBC cites Planet Earth success on HD DVD as reason to maintain support

Quote:
When Warner announced at CES that it would support Blu-ray Disc exclusively this summer, many assumed that all partners of the studio would also follow suit. Both New Line and HBO have followed Warner’s lead, but BBC Home Video decided to stand its ground as a format neutral company.

In response to an inquiry from website TV Shows on DVD, BBC Home Video said it will continue to support both formats for the time being, and “will evaluate the marketplace before committing to one format.”

Perhaps the most convincing reason for BBC Home Video to support both formats is its strong sales of high-definition nature documentary Planet Earth: The Complete BBC Series. According to the report, more copies of Planet Earth sold on HD DVD than on Blu-ray Disc, giving BBC Home Video a very specific reason to continue its support of HD DVD.
BBC Home Video also has four upcoming high-definition releases in the works for both formats for 2008, giving the company ample opportunity to evaluate the marketplace.
Now I await for someone to tell me this is old news.....
To me this means that more people have bought into HD DVD than Bluray. Now lets hope those people start buying more HD DVDs.
