Default HDTV Popular but Blu-ray Adoption Lukewarm

Quote:
According to Harris Interactive, the Blu-ray format may have won the format war, but consumers are still very slow to adopt the format. According to the firm 11% of Americans own a HD DVD player and 7% own a Blu-ray player while 9% own the PS3 meaning 16% of Americans can play Blu-ray films.

I,m a avowed streamer (VUDU & VOD mostly) and cound'nt be happier...

While it's not quite BR quality, it's not that far removed, with a promise to get better...
