Wal-Mart adds more Hi-def TVs and Blu-ray, and has Dad's Day bargains

Wal-Mart has redesigned its consumer electronics departments, adding hundreds of new products and making changes intended to help customers better understand the uses and options of the products, including a “hi-def Blu-ray experience area” in 1,200 stores.

Wal-Mart has made about a 60% increase in 1080p HDTVs with the introduction of new models and brands, and an expansion in larger TV sizes. There's also been an increased assortment of Blu-ray, with new players such as Magnavox, Samsung and Panasonic to the Sony line, plus an increased selection of Blu-ray movies.

From June 8-14, Wal-Mart is offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of any Blu-ray player in its stores.

In addition, the stores will have select Blu-ray movie titles for only $15 starting June 8, including 3:10 to Yuma, WAR, Shooter, 300, and The Fifth Element.
