Warner Bros. to Delay HD-DVD Releases

From Bloomberg News

Warner Bros. delayed the release of new high-definition home videos by three weeks, the second time the products have been postponed, because of technical issues including copy protection.

The studio, a subsidiary of Time Warner Inc., will release three films in the HD-DVD format April 18 and an additional 17 videos in the following weeks, Burbank-based Warner Bros. said.

The company had previously planned to release 50 films starting in the fourth quarter and 24 films beginning March 28.
