Netflix Sees Half A Million Blu-ray Subscribers

By Luke Anderson

The battle of the HD formats ended quite some time ago with Blu-ray coming out on top, but how well is it doing? Well we recently learned that Netflix was going to begin charging a $1 per month premium to all Blu-ray subscribers due to high costs and a lower demand than expected. Well the online rental giant has released figures on just how many users are taking advantage of their Blu-ray offerings.

It seems that over 500,000 customers are getting HD movies delivered to their mailboxes on a regular basis, which accounts for around 5.7 percent of their 8.7 million subscribers. I suppose that isn’t too bad of a figure, though it shows us that DVDs aren’t going anywhere for quite some time.
