Default New Disc Bundles to Accompany Toshiba's Third-Gen HD DVD Launch

With their soon-to-be released third-gen HD DVD players already announced and on display, a series of new bundle deals took center stage at Toshiba's Wednesday Night CEDIA press conference.

Would-be early adopters worried that the manufacturer's current "Perfect Offer" five disc mail order bundle might not be renewed after its current expiration date of 9/30/07 can rest easy.

A new version of the offer will run from 10/1/07 through 2/28/08, with a new selection of fifteen films to choose from.

Meanwhile, fans opting to buy one of Toshiba's third-gen HD DVD players will receive an additional two HD DVDs in the box -- Warner's '300' and Universal's 'Bourne Identity.' Although both the Xbox 360 add-on and Sony's PS3 have both included in-box high-def disc bundles, this marks Toshiba's first such foray.

In other marketing news from Toshiba, the company also announced a season-long promotional campaign with the NBC Television Station Group and its broadcasts of "Sunday Night Football."

Designed to communicate the benefits of HD DVD to millions of HDTV owners, Toshiba says the the cross-media campaign will include 30 second HD DVD ads, web sponsorships promoting the format, and special on-air promotional vignettes.

I'm with you there, i would probably buy one if the five free movie deal actually had some good ones on it.

Hmm I wonder how those films will be grouped up? If given the choice I'd like:

Babel
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Frighteners
Hulk
The Thing

Forget the five free, that's standard and those movies (on both sides) are so-so.

I think the bundling of 300 and Bourne Identity -in the box- is HUGE. Those are two big-deal movies and you don't have to wait for weeks to experience them. Absolutely huge imo.

If I hadn't gotten my HD DVD player yet, I would jump on this deal. Better yet, if this holiday has a $149 player bundled with Transformers and Shrek 3, that would be a killer! I wouldn't mind buying a 3rd one for the living room.
