Do you still buy dvd or blu-ray?

May 18, 2017 11:13am CST
Today, with all the facilities provided by streaming platforms (Netflix is a pretty good example of this), this habit may be falling more and more in disuse. I particularly still buy them (when I really like the movie / tv show), but only blu-ray. And you?

I'm not a big movie person, but I will buy the ones I love. Reason being: many of my favorites aren't available for streaming.

I am the same way, if it's a really good show or movie that I would want to watch when the internet or cable is out I will buy it. I do have quite a collection that I had bought over the years but a lot of those I have not been interested is watching again, at least not yet. Why only Blu-ray?

I have a cd player that lets me use my old regular cds as well as blu ray and since blue ray is more expensive I don't buy them if I don't have to @TheInvisibleMan of course I usually stream shows I like rather than buy them.

Yes i still buy movies to watch. Easier for the kids to see them and tell me which ones they want to watch on the tv. I also like having my movies rather then doing it through an app or something, i do have the apple tv just not hooked up yet, since ill be moving once again and then one more time this year into a place with my boyfriend so it will not be hooked up for a while so buying movies is a good option for me right now. I try to use giftcards i get online for doing certain things and then through my apps on my phone.

Last summer, we bought a Blu-Ray player. We can watch both blu-ray and DVD. So the last few movies we have bought are blu-ray.

I don't buy it for years. Today we can easily watch the movies online and it is not necessary to buy DVD or even Blue-ray.

I go for DVDs because they are easily available. Neflix is easily available but streaming movies is so expensive in my country

I used to buy blu ray discs but because my blu ray player is also able to stream YouTube, I now only watch videos on YouTube and I watch movies and tv shows on my smart tv. I don't even watch network tv anymore.

No. We haven't bought any DVDs in a very long time. Now we can get everything on Netflix or the Kodi program.
