The results and analysis for Blu-ray (and DVD) sales for the week ending 16th April 2011 has just been posted. Another week, another record for Blu-ray, but combined sales still appear to be quite disappointing. Blu-ray broke through the 27% barrier, after breaking through 26% last week, and 25% a week earlier. This week, it was all down to Harry Potter, from the new movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and the other four Harry Potter movies in the top 10.

Again, DVD numbers appear to be disappointing, and I have written a special section that compares this Harry Potter movie release to the last, in terms of Blu-ray and DVD sales. The fact that DVD sales were only up 25% from the same time last year where there were zero new releases on DVD, suggest that something is not quite right.
