Canada finally gets "Five free" HD DVD promotion On Monday, the HD DVD camp finally extended its "five free" titles promotion to Canada, after months of it being available only in the US.
The deal, which gives any purchaser of an HD DVD player the option to mail in for five free movies has been ongoing in the States for months on and off. The Blu-ray camp has had a similar promotion going in the US and Canada for some time now giving them an edge in the Canadian market.

Any buyer of a Toshiba HD DVD player, Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on (which is also made by Toshiba), or a Toshiba laptop with an HD DVD drive is entitled to the Canadian deal however, making it different than the US promotion.

The movies included are Aeon Flux, Babel, Freedom Writers, The Hulk, Pitch Black, The Thing, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, TMNT, Full Metal Jacket, Firewall, The Frighteners, U2: Rattle and Hum, Black Rain, Darkman and Syriana.

The only catch for the deal is the consumer is forced to pay a $10 shipping and handling fee for the free movies that can be paid via check or money order.

It's now also available in the UK too with the XBox 360 HD DVD add-on.

The choice of discs isn't vast but there are at least 5 decent ones in there by my reckoning.

If you buy the XBox 360 HD DVD add-on after the 1st October, it's definitely worth printing off the form.

And if you can find it cheap in the run up to christmas, even better. ;)
