    Anyone know what the point of this is?

    Are HD disks going to end up like games and get patched after release? :thumbsdow

    HD DVD's with dynamicHD web connectivity

    Terminator 2 and Grönemeyer HD DVD's to be released with dynamicHD web connectivity

    Berlin - The first wave of web-enabled HD DVD’s using the dynamicHD technology was revealed at the press conference of the HD DVD Forum at IFA today. The impressive lineup of Hollywood blockbuster, music and local releases of the leading German content owners gave a convincing forecast on what will hit the streets this year with Imagion’s new dynamicHD technology, that allows settop-players connected to the internet to update, unlock and download content hosted on special servers.

    Music Top-Hit will be EMI’s live DVD release “12” of Germany’s Superstar Herbert Grönemeyer, exclusively available in a 3-disc Edition containing 2 DVD’s and a HD DVD with nearly identical content in High Definition. Announced dynamicHD features will include news, tourdates and a discography, along with alternative mixes provided for download plus an innovative “share playlist” function that will allow users to share their favorite setlist with others via the www.tunehd.net community. In addition, in “Your voice against poverty”, users can contribute to Herbert Grönemeyer’s dedication directly from the dynamicHD interface.

    Movie-Top Hit will be the long-awaited HD DVD release of Terminator 2. As presented at the official HD DVD Promotion Group’s press conference at IFA, the title will be having a breathtaking set of innovative features on HD DVD. Among them a “script-to-scene”-feature showing script, storyboard and the movie directly connected on the screen. Users can scroll through the script - storyboard and movie are automatically synced. T2 will also include a “goof-mode” where the film can be watched with all the goofs made visible through text-information, zooms and special symbols. Apart from these two groundbreaking features, the disc will feature much more bonus making this HD DVD once more one of the “must-haves” - like the DVD release. The dynamicHD interface will give access to even more downloadable content, including up-to-date trailers from Kinowelt and access to a Terminator 2 Ultimate HD DVD community.

    The following HD DVD titles with dynamicHD internet content navigator were also announced at IFA:

    Crank
    CSI – Crime Scene Investigation HD DVD Boxset (3 disc set edition)
    Hannibal Rising
    Neues vom Wixxer
    Pan's Labyrinth
    Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof
    Herbert Grönemeyer – 12 live
    Motörhead – Stage Fright
    SAW 1
    SAW 2
    SAW 3
    Terminator 2 Ultimate HD DVD

    All titles will be produced by IMAGION AG.

    I find it interesting that despite being a German company, that's so much enthasis on appealing to the English speaking world with their website and press releases'. With HD profits being so low, to appeal to a hardcore HD DVD base throughout the entire world with a feature packed release like T2 seems like a really smart business decision.

    I totally agree, I wondered when studios & distributors would cotton onto this.

    With HD DVD being region free and English being a global language, it makes a lot of sense to go down that route for releases that might have a wider appeal.
