Default WB= the second neutral studio to take advantage of Blu-ray's specs.

rather than releasing Smallville on 5 discs (like the HDDVD version), it'll be on 4. sure, not everyone cares, but it's certainly a welcome feature. i always hated having a ton discs when trying to rewatch my favorite episodes.

That's funny, because they should only need 3 BDs.

30GB x 5 Discs = 150GB

150GB / 50GB = 3 BDs

Looks like Warner doesn't want to make HD DVD look THAT bad now.

well they may had to split a movie in half that way they needed 4

I think it probably will save them money 4 instead of 5 disks

Wait.. I thought studios did not care about extra capacity and it was a myth...

good point. i'd certainly take 3 discs. that'd be much more convenient than the DVD's 6 or 7 disc set.

I much rather have all the episodes of a season on one convenient BD-200 disc ...maybe a few years off perhaps.

This is a worthless post. I promsie you most people could care less if it is on 4 or 5 discs. Maybe if it was on 4 and hd was on 15 it might be a issue. Otherwise it is really is just reaching for straws by blu.
