Yes, it can. Samurai Pizza Cats' DVD release, for example, was on 8 disks while it's Standard Definition Blu-ray release was on a single disk. Standard Definition content on Blu-rays also features uncompressed sound quality which is why many live concerts are are released on Blu-ray even though the video content is in SD.

The reason why there isn't more SD content on Blu-ray is due to customer confusion. "It's on Blu-ray, so why isn't it in HD?"

Personally, I really wish people would get behind this more. Batman the Animated Series was released on 4 volumes with 16 DVD disks in total. A Blu-ray release would only take 2 disks. That's 14 less disks taking up shelf space plus the benefit of less video and audio compression.

Yeah, and ideally you'd get a little less compression on the BD than on DVD, but you can just imagine everyone flipping their **** when they buy it and it isn't HD, even though there would be a dozen labels on the box saying "SD ON BD" or something like that. It would just be a pain in the ass for WB and I imagine B:TAS sells well enough today on digital platforms.
