In all seriousness, I don't think there's going to be another generation of physical movie media. All-digital is going to be the next thing.

I think there'll always be physical media for movies.

Music may be doomed, but I think TV and film is fine.

I dunno, you may be right. There are a lot of hurdles to it, mainly from the studios. Hell, TV networks are still fighting to the death over ads on sites like Hulu. There's also the problem of technology; even the best high speed Internet providers in America can't handle streaming or downloading a high volume of video at a decent resolution.

Even with Netflix Instant being a million times better than it used to be, I still buy physical media simply because you never know when a studio is going to pitch a fit and pull their stuff from the service.

Plus you're only talking about X many users. It's pretty unlikely even countries like the US and the UK will ever have networks in place that will be able to cope if all TV and all movie releases are streamed.

I think he was more confused as to why I would bother having it on Blu-Ray. To which I say: "Eh."

Oh. Other than some new animated movies I don't see a huge difference between dvd and blu ray.
