Blockbuster films including Batman’s The Dark Knight and James Bond’s Quantum of Solace have helped to boost sales of Blu-ray discs in the UK. New figures from the British Video Association (BVA), using data from the Official Charts Company, show that Blu-ray disc sales continued to rise despite the recession. With 1,500 Blu-ray releases now available , more than 3.1m of the discs have been sold in 2009 to date, a rise of 231pc on the same period last year.However, the BVA said that due to consumers upgrading to Blu-ray and the impact of the recession there had been a fall in the number of DVDs sold. Sales were down 9.5pc year-on-year, bringing the total number of discs purchased so far this year to 100m. Thank you The Retail Bullitin
