Last week when Warner Brothers switched to Blu Ray in the HD format war there were some questions about whether or not CBS and Paramount would stick with their agreement to go HD DVD exclusive. Earlier today a report from the Financial Times indicated that Paramount was considering dropping support for HD DVD, but a subsequent report with Bloomberg states that Paramount has denied the FT report.
The Bloomberg article quotes Paramount’s Brenda Ciccone stating “Paramount’s current plan is to continue to support the HD DVD format.”
Work progressing on Season 2 for Star Trek
TrekMovie.com has confirmed that work is still on going for the HD DVD/DVD Combo version for Second Season of the remastered version of Star Trek: The Original Series. The box set is tentatively planned for May or June of this year. That should be followed up with Season Three in November.
Of course things can change on a dime in this format war, but for now it appears that CBS and Paramount will finish up Star Trek (TOS) on HD DVD. What happens in 2009 and beyond with the new movie and the rest of the Trek film and TV library is anyone’s guess right now.
