Blu-ray sales boast strong gains

New figures from the British Video Association show that hi-def disc format Blu-ray enjoyed a bumper Christmas in the UK, with sales climbing significantly compared to the same period last year.

The BVA claims that 1.5 million Blu-ray movies were sold in the UK in December – a number that’s 400 per cent up from the same period in 2007.

The best-selling movie of the year was Warner Bros’ The Dark Knight, selling 281,000 copies. This still pales compared to the best-selling DVD of the year though – Universal’s Mamma Mia managed three million sales on DVD in just its first week of sale in the UK.
