Warner Bros. has launched a new HD DVD trade-in program today, allowing owners of Warner HD DVD titles to receive the same film on Blu-ray for a small fee.

Dubbed Red2Blu, the site allows you to "upgrade" your titles to Blu-ray for $4.95 USD ($9.95 for boxsets), without needing to trade in your actual discs, just the cover art (with UPC code) from the red HD DVD cases.

Shipping costs a flat rate $6.95 USD for up to 25 films, and Warner has all 128 titles available for "upgrade."

The site is very simple to use and I used it this morning to trade in 5 HD DVD titles. Final cost? $33 with tax to have 5 Blu-rays while keeping the HD DVDs is not a bad deal at all. If you are a big fan of the HD DVD cover art, then make replicas but make sure to send in the originals or your claim will be rejected.

The death of HD came about due to the adult entertainment industry .
At 1st Sony was insisting that adult movies would not be distributed on blu-ray, this meant the only avenue for HighDef adult films would be HD.
Sony not wanting to miss out on this billion $$$$ industry finally caved and thus ended the HD/Bluray saga.
