Is Blu-ray’s Future Fading to Black?

Jan 6, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Although Blu-ray emerged victorious as the next-generation format for home video, its victory may be short-lived as new technology paints an unclear future for the discs, the New York Times reports. Among the technology to be unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show is a new TV set from LG Electronics that connects directly to the Internet in order to facilitate video streaming without a set-top box, the newspaper says. “The Blu-ray format is in jeopardy simply because the advent of downloadable HD movies is so close,” Endpoint Technologies Associates’ Roger L. Kay said, according to the Times.
