Overlay Menus
HD DVD offers a clear and uncomplicated menu bar navigation system that satisfies both those who just want to watch the movie and power users. It's simpler and more intuitive than menus found on Standard Def DVDs.

Even better, HD DVDs give you instant access to settings, features and menu options while a program is playing. With Standard Def DVDs, you have to stop movie playback to access the menu. But now, on your command, menu overlays appear allowing you to freely navigate without interrupting the film. Change the set up, browse the chapter guide, select bonus content and turn features on and off, all while the film plays on. How cool is that?
In Movie Experience
The increased capacity of HD DVDs over Standard Def DVDs means you'll be getting more captivating and informative bonus features than ever before. After watching the film in its theatrical form, you can enjoy it again and again in new and different ways. Of course, the content of every HD DVD will be different, but there are more opportunities than ever for innovation. Case in point: the In-Movie Experience where the director can enter the screen on your cue and comment on the action or point out key elements of the scene while the film is playing.

Other special features you'll likely find in various combinations on future HD DVDs include web links, downloadable content, audio commentary tracks, extra scenes, alternate endings, documentary segments, making-of segments, interviews, trailers, music videos and more.
Online Capability
Web links to online sites are likely to show up on many future HD DVD titles. The user would simply insert the HD DVD into their computer's disc drive, open a folder to locate the links and enter another dimension of home entertainment. Links may include the movie's website, fan site, actor sites, online game sites, online shopping sites and more.
