Apple angles for Blu-Ray movies on iPods

Blu-Ray movies on iPods?

Apple is rumored to be in talks with Sony and other studios to include iPod versions of movies on Blu-Ray releases. The Cupertino-based company joined the Blu-Ray Disc Association in early March of 2005, which was created to broaden support for the High Definition disc format that offers five times the capacity of DVDs. Disney has also adopted the Blu-Ray disc format, and has worked with Apple on video content in the past. Apple's movie offering would expand greatly were it to convince Sony and Disney to add iPod support, according to Business 2.0 Magazine. Blu-Ray discs are easily large enough to store an iPod-ready copy of a High-Definition flick along with the full version, and though Apple would miss out on potential revenues from selling the movies via iTunes, having a massive offering of iPod-formatted movies available to consumers could mean more iPod sales.
