While I download music (I'll buy the album for my favorite artists), I like to have back-ups of my back-ups of my back-ups...I just would hate to lose all of that downloaded (and paid-for) content; I have never downloaded a movie...I still buy the physical copies. I have a decent-sized collection on my Disney Movies Anywhere account (I've never downloaded any of them yet, but it's nice to know if I ever go anywhere, I could watch them).

What happens if you have all of your music/books/movies just electronically and then, *poof*, technical difficulties, they're all gone?!

Valid point indeed! I myself prefer the physical item if purely for the sheer joy of unwrapping those often beautifull packagings. That being said I detest digital purchases altogether since you pay the same if not more without the ensurance that your purchases will still be available in the near future because of either an expiration date or a failed digital format in the long run

This is my philosophy; having your favorite movie or TV show on a physical format, knowing it's there ready for you to watch whenever you want is comforting and a joy.

I love and will take physical media any time and any day over digital. Now yes, I do streaming, but it will NEVER ever replace physical media. Not by a long shot.

I knew this would all start happening eventually. I'd like to think they still will make Blu-rays / DVDs available in some niche online somewhere though? :( :( To me, it's just such crap to do away with physical media altogether even if they want to make digital the focus.

A few weeks ago, I went to a Walmart I don't usually go to and they didn't have a single CD in the whole store. :o But they had a whole aisle of vinyl records? Like, is the universe on crack these days? :lol: Nothing makes any sense.

as of last year, one of the main suppliers in new zealand of cd's, dvds and vinyl records stopped selling them entirely. they still sell console games, but even that may change before long. now, if i wish to buy a dvd in person, my nearest store is 3 hours south.

yes, we can order online, but only from a select few stockists. the one that recently stopped selling used to get some really random titles at times, and not every store would get the same ones. one of the last i found was the complete series of "on the buses", something that would not really appear elsewhere at an affordable price.
