Trade in Your DVDs, Plus a of Couple Bucks and Get the Blu-ray Versions
Warner set up a DVD to Blu-ray exchange program called, appropriately enough, DVD2Blu, as sort of a more-tempting version of its HD-DVD to Blu-ray version. The problem is, it’s not actually that great of a deal; you’re limited to Warner movies, obviously, but it also costs $US8-10 per DVD, plus $US5 shipping, for the exchange. You might actually be better off just hitting Best Buy or Walmart or whatever and looking for sales, since DVD2Blu could cost you 18 bucks plus the agony of waiting for your new HD copy of The Wedding Singer: Totally Awesome Edition to arrive.
