Venturer SHD7001 HD DVD player
Our friends across the pond (the Brits) get a sweet HD DVD player deal that just got sweeter. The eagerly awaited, low cost Venturer SHD7001 High Definition (HD) DVD player from Venturer will not only offer an add on package worth around £50.00 (two HD DVDs; Hulk and Troy, and a free HDMI cable) it will also now include a voucher that enables customers to redeem 5 more free HD DVDs courtesy of the European HD DVD Promotional Group. That's right, for £50.00 you get a total of 7 HD DVDs and a free HDMI cable. Personally, I think all HD DVD players should come with a HDMI cable anyway. Still, for £50 which gives you 7 HD DVDs, that's a pretty good deal.

Customers have until January 31st 2008 to use their redemption voucher to select 5 of their favorite titles for free from a list of HD DVDs. No additional charges will be made as postage and packaging will also be completely free.

The SHD7001 will initially be available to buy in the UK exclusively from QVC TV Home Shopping Channel QVC, which is available on Sky Digital channel 630, Freeview channel 16 and Virgin TV channel 740.  The product will become available from December 29th, when it will be the featured product of the day (Today's Special Value). What? 4 days after Christmas? Talk about missing a golden opportunity to sell this like hot cakes. Not a very smart marketing move to wait until after the largest shopping holiday of the year is over with.

Further, the price of the SHD7001 remains undisclosed until its official launch on QVC on December 29th. So for all I know they're going to sell this thing for $500, which wouldn't make it much of a deal after all.
