Coraline Blu-ray 3D breaks away from Panasonic exclusivity
By Mark Raby
It’s a symbolic move demonstrating the Blu-ray 3D format is ready to stand on its own two feet.
Universal Studios’ Blu-ray 3D exclusivity deal with Panasonic has apparently expired, and as a result it will bring out its movie Coraline, previously only available through Panasonic 3D purchases, to everyone with a 3D TV.
Heretofore, it someone wanted the animated flick on the 3D format, they would need to have a Panasonic 3D TV or a Panasonic 3D glasses bundle, because the TV manufacturer had the exclusive rights to the product’s distribution.
However, Universal will make the movie available to everyone on January 4. So expect those high-priced Ebay auctions for Coraline Blu-ray 3D to disappear pretty quickly.
