I was reading a CNET post on why digital downloads will overtake Blu-ray and I almost agree.
While I don’t think it will happen over night, I am sure digital downloads will over take physical disks in the future. The problem Blu-ray has is that for most people standard DVD is good enough. Xbox Live and Apple TV are showing that digital downloads can work. I know internet speeds need to increase but they will, it’s only a few years ago that we were on 36k dial up modems. Windows Media Center needs a movie download service to stay relevant, while I like the Xbox service there needs to be a 10 foot Media Center version. It makes me wonder what collectors will do, I know a lot of people that like to collect DVDs and they will switch to Blu-ray over time but can you collect digital downloads?
Are you a collector of DVDs? If so let me know what you think
