Brits Love Blu-ray


Posted January 2, 2009 - By Frank Meyer

If there’s one thing I know about the British, it’s that they love them some bleedin’ Blu-ray, mate!

Yes, demand for the high-def Blu-ray format drove U.K. DVD sale up in 2008, according to the British Video Association.

Based on over-the counter purchases, DVD sales rose 1.9% year-on-year to 252.9 million units, including 3.7 million Blu-ray titles, a 378% rise from 2007. That means 1.5 million Blu-ray discs were sold in December alone, up almost 400% from last year. The figures show that "the home entertainment market is alive and kicking, despite difficult trading conditions across the entire retail sector," says the BVA in a statement.

The year's best selling UK Blu-ray title? Warner Home Video’s The Dark Knight, at 281,000 copies, luv! Take that, Iron Man!
