List of HD DVD devices

This is a list of released devices that are capable of playing HD DVDs.

All HD DVD players and drives are no longer in production (though some HD DVDs are still being produced)[1] due to Time Warner's decision to abandon the HD DVD format in favor of Blu-ray Disc.[2] Since Time Warner is the largest seller of video discs in the world,[3] its choice for Sony's Blu-ray caused Toshiba and its partners to concede defeat in the race to become the high definition standard.
