Yup.

The last I read (I get a number of the trade mags sent to me)...the number may double in 2009 over 2000. That would put them up to about 20% of all the regular DVDs made to date.

If you think about that, that is pretty quick! Considering how long DVD has been going.

Indeed.

The growth rate of Blu Ray (to date since introduction) is actually about 15% ahead of where regular DVD was at the same point of maturity to market....so for a "dead format"...its moving right along quite well and growing monthly.
