First I will agree with everyone here that this format is at best SILLY.
EZ-D is not designed for anyone on this forum. It's public is specific and probably out there waiting. The question is "How big will that public be?".
As long as Disney keeps coming out with quality discs I can purchase (at a decent price) that has a good soundtrack, is anamorphic, and contains interesting extras - I could care less what they do on the side! Pan&Scan - Black and White - Colorized - full of advertising, who cares???
Who might be affected by this format?
Sorry to say our wonderful REVIEWERS may be unhappy to be getting these in the mail one day as short term review discs. Also it is possible that academy screeners may find a home in this format.
But for the rest of us, I do not see a problem in the near future (or even far future). It is just another option.
Another drawback to EZ-D is that they are all DVD5. The studios may be surprised to learn that these are much easier to rip that DVD9. Ooops!
Last I will just comment that Disney bashing, which just 2 years ago was almost a contact sport in this forum, has now just become a amateur past-time. Yes, I believe there is a small element of Disney bashing in this thread.
I will conclude by commenting that an article is the LA times several months ago quoted Michael Eisner as being somewhat skeptical of the EZ-D format. As I stated in an earlier thread on this topic, I believe Disney is just doing a favor in providing product for an experimental format.
Thanks for reading.
