After all the Blockbusters in my city went out of business, I now only have to go to my local grocery store to buy a cheap movie for a couple bucks. I still enjoy DVD's.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
I too still enjoy looking at my bluray collection and picking one. IDK something about having the disc is nice.
That certainly doesn't make it right to use a dying technology, digital media is the future and there is no way to stop it.
I'm not stopping it, I support streaming and digital rentals, etc but I still love DVD's like I love my Nintendo 64.
It is hilarious entirely to me to speak of DVD's as dieing technology. As technology in general moves so fast now it is kind of insane. Watching all of the stuff going on about same day delivery in all major cities, and states trying to establish taxation on those sale as well is informing. When you look at the issues worldwide in financial markets some of it is due to technology and the spread of sales in differing ways over it. The world is adapting and that adaptation in many ways as technology increases as well. This surrounds the issue completely. We have a bunch of DVD's but we generally and have for a couple of years now just grab them on Comcast on Channel1. The most we have ever paid is 4.99 and we don't have to drive anywhere to get them, not to mention many new movies there is a pre to dvd release and you can grab them early sometimes with no increase in price usually depending on how well they did in the theater.
I haven't used physical media or anything of the sort for approx 2 years. I don't have a CD-ROM on my computer either. Digital downloads/streaming or USB sticks all the way!
Im with Erakith, bought a media player with a 2 tb HDD early last year and haven't used a DVD or blu ray since.
