Netflix CEO sees HD DVD and Blu-ray war “maintaining stalemate”

During their Q2 Earnings Conference Call yesterday, CEO Reed Hastings stated that they now view the format war as an unwinnable one. In their view, the best thing that can happen now would be for all studios currently declared exclusive on either side to release films on both formats starting early next year, ending the war and restoring consumer confidence in both camps.

I can’t agree really. Neither format has more than a negligible share right now, just because HD-DVD launched a bit sooner and BD systems have been delayed doesn’t really mean anything in the long haul.
