Warner BD-Live titles coming this Winter At a press event this week, Warner has revealed that its first BD-Live enabled titles will become available in time for the Winter holidays, as promised at CES.
Darcy Antonellis, president of Warner Bros. Technical Operations added that among the new interactive features would be "real-time viewing, a search engine, library access, and a 'recommendation tool' for other titles complete with e-mail reminders."

There will also of course be downloadable picture-in-picture, deleted scenes and trailers, as well as wallpapers and ringtones.

"I think it [BD-Live] has the ability to compete [with MySpace and YouTube] for a user's time because you are taking them online and you're able to create a community that we have never been able to do before," she said. 'That's huge for us."

Although the titles were not confirmed, Antonellis implied that the upcoming blockbuster 'The Dark Knight' was a likely candidate.

"These are exclusive opportunities that can be offered through this small community that is created with these [Profile 2.0] players,"
Antonellis said. "We are no longer limited by finite capacity on the disc."
