Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Warner Home Video will debut a new twist on HD DVD's Internet interactivity Dec. 11 with the HD DVD release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
With information on features for the release coming out in dribbles, the HD DVD North American Promotional Group's Web site (thelookandsoundofperfect.com) posted the following details about a “Live Community Screening” option: “Gather your own army of fellow wizards for a live community screening party. Invite other owners of the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix HD DVD to simultaneously watch from their own Internet-accessed players.”
The person hosting the viewing can pause and control how the movie is viewed, and the description goes on to mention a live chat feature is included.
