Default So i turned on my TV to E! when...

in the commercials following the soup was a toshiba hddvd player commercial..i was quit shocked that they had an ad out on network tv..i havent seen advertisement for blu or hd players ever..all ive seen is in dvd commercials they say coming to blu or hd. Just wondering if i have been blind or is this the first Toshiba marketing defense made to get America to go HDDVD...they even said at the end to check out the new HDDVD exclusive Heroes the complete first season.
Thanks, just getting this out in the forum.

yeah I've seen this ad and others. HD-DVD is doing a much better job of trying to get the word out for sure.

Yeah, I actually saw one of the HD DVD commercials on Comedy Central the other night. Surprised the hell out of me. I've seen the Heroes one on a few stations now too.

Maybe they were waiting for the Blu-ray war chest to start running a bit dry and for the market to pick up. Seems like a win-win strategy, especially with the Blul-ray camp reeling.

"Reeling"? I don't know that I'd put it that way...
