Default Hollywood Video & HD DVD

I live near Lexington, Ky and our local Hollywood Video just got their first shipment of 30-50 different HD DVDs today! They said rentals will be $6.99 for 5 days.

My local Hollywood Video, as of last week, said they have no plans to carry HiDef discs until the format war is over.

Which means others will likely do so as well, based on corporate decision.

When I worked for Hollywood, we had about 80 Blu-rays and 40 HD DVDs. The rentals were $5.29 for 5 days, compared to $4.29 for SD DVDs.

We only got maybe one or two new ones a week, and we almost never got them before the street date. They also made us next to nothing from the rentals, but cost us like crazy to get. DVDs cost $6 from the supplier, the HDs and Blu-rays were all in the $15-20 range. In 8 months, the entire Blu-ray section had earned us a little over $600. In comparison, a typical movie in its first week earned us $1,000. A few of the other Hollywoods I've been to since I quit haven't gotten new HDs or Blu-rays, mostly because Hollywood is going through a huge financial crisis right now. That shipment of HD DVDs you got was probably pooled together from the 600 stores Hollywood closed recently.
