But the majority of Blu-ray players sold to date do not have the necessary hardware to offer the features.

Some discs already come with a note telling users that they may need to upgrade software in their machine.

If I were forced to pick a format, it would be HD-DVD. However neither actually interests me much, HD is not the be all and end all of television like manufacturers would like us to believe; hell I can still quite happily watch things recorded on to SVHS when my Sky+ had problems!

So long as its watchable, clear etc, it is good enough for me! And the vast majority of people! I dont want to see Gary Linekers ever-increasing wrinkles on MOTD thank you very much!!

Imho, IPTV is the future of television. And there will never be enough capacity to stream HD resolution IPTV content...

THe only think that interests me at the minute is the flexible screens, made from some new technology.

HD TV - Nar
Blu-Ray - Nar

As Matty said if i can watch it i'm happy.
