NEWS UPDATE: More details about the demise of HD DVD coming shortly...


The big story this morning is Toshiba's decision to pull the plug on HD DVD. To keep you bang up to date with what's happening, we've got a telephone interview booked at 11.30am with Olivier van Wynendaele, Toshiba's deputy general manager of HD DVD Europe.

We'll be asking him how Toshiba plans to look after the one million people who've already bought HD DVD players, what Universal and Paramount – the last two Hollywood studios supporting the format – will do, and whether Toshiba will now start making Blu-ray players.

If you've got any other questions you'd like us to ask him, post them as a reply to this story. We'll post an update on the site as soon as we've finished the interview.
