    iNetVideo is blowing out 114 Universal (I think that's where most of the titles are coming from) HD DVD titles for $5.99 each. American Gangster is $11.99, and there are 2 TV season sets: Battlestar Galactica Season 1 $39.99, Heroes Season 1 $29.99 listed on the website.

    Since the news got out, it blew up their website, so they set up another alternative website (the main caveat is that this site only accepts Paypal and money orders order):

    iNetVideo.com - Movies, Games, Music

    Shipping is a little pricey if you only buy one, or a few. It's $4.95 for the first title, and $2 for each subsequent title. So if you order 5 titles, shipping is $12.95, but the sub-total is $29.95, the total is $42.90, average cost $8.58. And the more you buy, the average cost goes down a little bit.

    Someone posted a full list of the titles (I think Out of Sight doesn't show up on the website on the US side, but shows up on their Canadian site). You'll pay a little more on the Canadian site since the US dollar is now weaker than the Canadian dollar, by about 1.1%. But the Canadian site does accept credit card orders.

    Picked up 9 titles from the Canadian site (though shipping is a bit stiff--especially when I could drive to the warehouse in Canada in about 30 mins and pick them up, in theory, though with local gas prices at 5.15$ a US gallon, maybe the shipping isn't so bad [​IMG] ).

    Taxes up here make mine average about 70 cents more per disc, but it's still a bargain considering I routinely spend 15-18 dollars per SD DVD when the need arises.

    Looks like prices are creeping up, probably 1/3 of the titles or more are now $7.99 each.

    Well, I ordered a total of 16. Total...$9.61 each. crazy!
    I also ordered an A2 to take the place of my xbox add-on connected to my HTPC. Powerdvd is just a pain. Got the A2 for 70 shipped.
    Who would have thought a few years ago that you could pick up 16 HD movies and a player all for about $200!

    Just grabbed a few more that were 5.99 plus the Heroes box set for 29.99. Even with the shipping, the deal is good.

    On the Canadian site, as of last night, about 6 of those in your list were either still at 5.99 or at 7.99 (sorry I don't remember which ones were higher).

    They have been moving prices around of late, so just pay attention before adding them to your shopping cart.

    They added some new titles yesterday. I saw Brokeback Mountain for $11.99, Hollywoodland and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Minds for $5.99.

    I picked up seven more titles, with shipping it worked out to $10 apiece.

    If you use this link:

    iNetVideo.com - Movies, Games, Music

    You can see what HD DVD titles are being offers at the various price points with links on the left side of the page.

    Be aware that some may show up with bilingual covers. I got one that was.

    My orders ended up almost 50/50 bilingual. C'est la vie.

    Most folks in the US just aren't used to seeing bilingual covers (as folks in Canada are used to it), and some have hangups on how the spine is affected by the 2 sets of title writing on them.

    It doesn't matter much to me, but there are people who are into the packaging side of things in this hobby.

    Just an FYI, from now until June 8th, there is free shipping for orders over $50 (limited to USA orders). The selection of HD DVDs is getting smaller, but if you can find enough to get over the $50 minimum, you can get some good deals. You may have to use "FREE0909" for the code to get the free shipping.
