Do you buy DVDs? Blu-ray? Or do you prefer digital downloads?

I ask this because the digital release for "Avengers: Infinity War" is this coming Tuesday. I can't wait!

I now pretty much get everything digitally. I love the convenience of having all my favorite movies and TV shows right on my iPad.

Admittedly, the fact that I lost my $250 portable Blu-ray player helped persuade me.

Digital.  I don't even have a DVD hooked up anymore but once in awhile I'll feel all budget conscious and go rent a DVD from the redbox and hook it up.

But honestly .... if people can't find things to watch on Netflix and Hulu ... they have too damn much time available for watching television.

I wonder if people will start to get nostalgic for DVDs and VHS and 8mm films like they do books.

A few years ago some friends were discussing on facebook how they'll never use kindle and ebooks because they love their libraries too much.  I wondered out loud if after the Guttenberg press was invented people were saying things like "You'll never get me to give up the feel of a good lambskin codex!" and before that "Papyrus scrolls are here to stay!  These kids today with their bizarre codexes.  Nobody has time to read that much there's food to be scavenged!"

I was and still am serious. 

People didn't take well to that.  I upset a surprising number of my friends.

I have the movies directly downloaded into my brain... Saves hours of viewing time!

So you have zero data? Cheesy

But seriously, digital is so much more convenient. Before when I used to travel, I'd have to bring DVDS and my portable player, and then CDs and my portable CD player.

Today, I just need my iPad and my iPod, and I'm set!

The only time I'd consider getting a disc version would be if I *REALLY* love a certain movie so much that I'd want to keep a Blu-ray for my library.

When I purchase a show/movie I almost always buy the DVDs or Blu Rays. It's a lot harder to permanently lose a physical copy than it is a digital and there is some question as to whether or not you permanently own a digital copy, depending on where you bought it.

When possible, I often get the DVD/Blu-Ray/Digital Copy pack. Best of both worlds kind of thing.

I do have a few things that are just digital copies because either the physical copy doesn't exist, or the price difference was far too great to justify the extra cash.

I also belong to Netflix and Amazon Prime, so I stream a great deal as well, but of course the availability of any one show is left to the whims of the provider.

I mostly stream on Netflix. I also do pay on demand on cable once in a while. I should get Amazon prime, after all I've ordered enough stuff to make it practical.
I don't buy or collect movies.

Sometimes I think I'm the only one in the world without Netflix or Amazon Prime.  Smiley

My budget is limited so I only get the WWE Network.

So when you hear about those starving kids, you think that they all have Netflix...

Probably, if they’re on big government welfare.

Maybe if you hadn't dropped out of college you'd be earning enough today to afford Netflix.
