DVD sales expected to decline further; Blu-ray on the rise



I just posted the article DVD sales expected to decline further; Blu-ray on the rise.

Consumer interest in reducing costs and using Redbox and other rental service is expected to continue a slide in DVD sales, according to a movie industry big wig.

I rarely buy a DVD anymore. Maybe being a family man has something to do with it. Maybe it’s the fact that the crappiest movies come out at $20 when they should be $10. The music industry woke up, so why can’t the movie industry? If all movies came out on DVD at $10 then I would buy it and not torrent it. I’m sure I’m not alone here.


I wouldn’t say I never buy DVDs, but I will say that I never buy new releases, or DVDs at full price anymore.

I wait til they’re in the sale/deal section, or I go without. :slight_smile:

Blu-ray I can’t really justify purchasing anyway, given the fact that I own (and intend to own until it keels over and dies) a standard def TV.


I have several Blu-Ray movies now myself.

I get everyone that Wal-mart sells at $10.00
No really new movies but I got several good older movies. :smiley:
