Tosh confirms HD DVD UK launch


At a press event in Hertfordshire Tosh confirmed it will launch its HD DVD player this autumn. Already available in Japan and launching in the US this month (April 18th), the HD-XA1 will be the first high def DVD player available in the UK – several months ahead of players using the rival Blu-Ray DVD format.

The HD-XA1 is expected to cost in the region of £499 (it will cost $499) and is backwardly compatible with existing DVD discs. No confirmation of HD-DVD titles yet, but expect to see loads of Warner titles like King Kong, Dukes of Hazzard, Serenity and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
