Fox Home Entertainment selects Blu-ray

August 3, 2005

Twentieth Century Fox will release content on the Blu-ray Disc HD format through its subsidiary Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

A member of the Board of Directors of the Blu-ray Disc Association since October 2004, the company will begin releasing new films, TV programs and other titles from Fox's film and TV library when Blu-ray hardware launches in North America, Japan and Europe.

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 addresses the needs and concerns of the studio and Hollywood.

Those in the competing HD-DVD camp responded on the content protection issue. In a statement the group said HD-DVD also provides robust, renewable and standardized content protection.
