SHD7000 contains 2 free movies

But no 5 mail-in for the U.S.


By now most people knows that Wal-Mart is selling the Venturer SHD7000 HD DVD player in the U.S. and Canada. What most people don’t know is that you get two free randomly selected HD DVDs inside the box. It seems that reports indicate that a variety of HD DVD titles are finding their way into the SDH7000 boxes.

However, don’t expect to be able to take advantage of the five free mail-in HD DVD offers that have been offered to Toshiba HD DVD buyers. At least in the U.S. and Canada, you don’t get the five free mail-in HD DVD offer; but in Europe this is a different story. With the purchase of the SHD7001 version you get not only “The Hulk” and “Troy” on HD DVD in the box, but also a free HDMI cable. To top it off, European customers have a form in the box to order another five free HD DVDs via mail from the European HD DVD promotional group until January 31st, 2008.

The price of the player continues to hover at just under US$200 in North America, but many consumers are opting for a Toshiba HD DVD player on sale over the Venturer model, due to the fact that they are getting the five free mail-in HD DVDs from Toshiba plus two free titles in the box.
