    Does anyone know why that none of Warner Bros. including their new releases aren't offered in HD?

    No ****. My question is why don't they want to.

    More than likely they want to make money selling you the Blu-ray version. Only WB will know the real reason.

    I'm sure they will eventually... the studios have definitely been slow in adopting the iTunes HD Store, but perhaps the rumored AppleTV hardware refresh will help spur interest.

    because movie studios just like music labels are stuck using a business model from 15 years ago.

    That is what happens when 80 year old men run your company I guess. No forward thinking

    Instead of starting a new thread, I thought I'd dig up this oldie . . .

    For anyone interested, WB has some of their movies available in HD now on iTunes. (including Nolan's Batman movies, Inception, Matrix, and others.)
