"The unified DVD format is now just a dream, as Fox Home Entertainment announced that they are planning to support the Blu-Ray format. In the raging battle for the next DVD format, Sony and Toshiba are trying to convince as many movie studios as possible to support their format.

With Fox Entertainment choosing a side, right now the top six studios of the entertainment industry are now equally divided on the issue of choosing between Blu-Ray and HD-DVD format.

Although the company did not specify which titles it will launch with, Fox Entertainment did state it will begin releasing content when Blu-Ray hardware becomes available. Blu-Ray Disc it's backed also by Sony Pictures along with MGM and Walt Disney Pictures and Television

Toshiba has won for the HD-DVD format the support of Warner Home Video (with New Line and HBO), Paramount Home Entertainment, and Universal
Studios Home Entertainment.

Fox in a statement has said that Blu-Ray companies “fully embrace the studio’s steadfast commitment to the fight against piracy and the preservation of the integrity of its properties. In fact, Fox’s commitment to publish on Blu-Ray is a direct result of the organization’s recent adoption of copyright protection measures, including renewable security, that address the needs and concerns of the studio and the entire Hollywood community.”" [more]
