RE: "Blu Ray" expected to take off - Survey
How is the local network content in Canada? Many people here just get OTA (over-the-air) HD which is free using an antenna. You get all the networks in HD (Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc) which have the bulk of HD programming. Cable only gets you a few extra things here, like ESPN, TNT, Discovery, Food Network, etc. I think Sci-Fi recently started an HD version. That's about a $15/month upgrade here as well.
My Philips 1080p upconvert DVD player was $49 at Best Buy during the holidays. It does look a lot sharper, but it looks better on my DLP than my LCD (the background parts that are intentionally out of focus in a film often look like they are artificially sharpened by the player).
I personally am thinking ahead with Blu-Ray in mind when i purchase my movies. When I still buy DVDs, its mostly for comedies that I don't think will matter if I upgrade. For movies like Live Free or Die Hard, I'll wait and get the Blu-Ray version one day. I went ahead and just bought Transformers on DVD because no telling when Paramount will ever come out with a BR version.
