LG offers promotion with hybrid HD player In the past couple of months, both HD DVD and Blu-ray have begun offering promotions in an effort to sell more players for their respective camps. These promotions, either price drops or "five discs free" movie offers have helped to bolster sales and gain more attention for the next gen discs.
Today, LG, makers of dual-format "hybrid" HD players have finally decided to offer a free movie promotion of their own, in conjunction with Best Buy.

Any customer who purchases LG's hybrid player at Best Buy can select 10 free discs from Best Buy's complete collection of Blu-ray and HD DVD movies (excluding box sets). This is double the amount of discs of the other promotions and with hardly any limitations on the titles you can choose.

Although the LG player is an expensive $1200, the promotion should help sales, not to mention bring attention to hybrid players.

I agree, after my 52 inch lcd projection tv that cost me $2300 went out in three years I won't buy an LG product ever again. Plus they don't value their costumers very well as you get the cold shoulder when contacting them.

Have they managed to get this player fully licensed by both camps yet?
