I knew this would happen. Streaming services like Netflix and Amazon seem great until every studio starts up their own streaming service. Eventually you'll be putting out $12 bucks a month for 12 different streaming services if you want to watch this stuff.

And this is why physical media is still probably the most reliable and most cost-effective way to go.

And there are plenty of pawn shops that have DVD's and Blu-Rays that are sitting there unsold, waiting for somebody to plop their money down.

I only subscribe to Netflix. I have Amazon Prime for the next year, but haven't really delved into what's available for streaming (aside from the godawful Saturday The 14th). I've always wanted to BUY and OWN movies rather than just renting them. Streaming is nice to see if I'll like a movie or show enough to buy it, but the majority of Netflix originals will never be released on a physical disc format, which pisses me off. mad


Plus, try to find a movie made before the year 2000 on Netflix.

Actually the majority of Netflix originals are released on physical disk. At least they were in the beginning. Typically Netflix partners with a studio (one of the major studios) and Netflix maintains the rights for streaming and gives up the rights for DVD and Blu Ray sales. I know for example that House of Cards and Orange is the New Black have Blu-Rays available.

???? There is a whole category reserved for classics from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, etc...

Ain't that the truth. If the source is exclusively digital, you don't really own it.

That's why I don't put all my eggs in one basket. I've embraced iTunes, but I "own" what I purchase though it's digital. And I try very hard to get my digital copies by buying BluRays with digital copy, so if anything changes on the streaming front I still have the film in physical format.
