Engadget dropped this little tidbit last week about Criterion delaying their Blu-ray launch yet again. Do I suspect anything nefarious? Not really, but I wish Criterion would reconsider dumping money into a format that will never be adopted in any meaningful way. I’m hopeful that their flashy new website (pun intended) is an indication that they may be rethinking Blu-ray and considering some sort of HD digital delivery system.
With the HD Streaming Netflix on New Xbox Experience blowing my mind, I’d hope that they’d find a way to get their content uploaded there to spare the expense of authoring Blu-ray discs. I have my fingers crossed.
