Warner announces European Blu-ray Plans
Warner Home Video announced today at IFA 2006 the company's plans to release more than 10 high definition Blu-ray Disc titles in European markets. These countries include France, Germany, Spain and the UK. The initial films are expected to be available in late 2006 and represent a combination of recent hits and catalog favourites.
Warner Bros. will release titles to coincide with the expected European roll out of Blu-ray movie players. Titles will include recent hits such as Firewall and Syriana, and classics from the extensive Warner Home Video library such as Full Metal Jacket, Training Day and Space Cowboys.
"As the leader in high definition content, Warner Home Video is pleased to announce titles in support of the European launch of Blu-ray Disc hardware," said Ron Sanders, President of Warner Home Video. "With more European consumers purchasing high definition TVs, the demand for content is steadily growing. To date, consumers have been limited to watching only high definition broadcast programming. Warner Bros. Blu-ray Disc titles now provide movie fans with stunning high definition quality and the convenience offered by packaged media."
