Are you currently re-buying your favourite cinema classics in addition to purchasing new movies in Blue ray dvd format since it's taking over where the DVD left off? You might like to reconsider. Microsoft has emerge and asserted the near future isn't with Blue Ray but with digital media which isn't just because they are sore losers concerning the HD DVD vs. Blue ray battle. Consider it: why can you wish to purchase and store hundreds of movies that you may or might not wish to view again when they could be instantly streamed on the internet for your family room? Rather than driving to the video store to rent a movie then having to return it the next day all that you should do is select one from a list and press play.
Recently Netflix continues to be exploding in terms of popularity within the U.S offering this very service and is poised to have the same sort of success north from the border with the launch of Netflix Canada. Meanwhile Blockbuster has been floundering for years and today it has finally been instructed to file for bankruptcy.
This isn't all, many media streamers are now being released that offer consumers the opportunity to view media from the USB hard drive, their personal network storage or the internet around the television with no need for the need for discs. The brand new Google T.V will allow users to stream YouTube video as well as other content right to their television and Apple has released a competing device called Apple TV. Western Digital got the jump on these two giants with their WD TV Live and Microsoft is offering an excellent service with Windows Media Center.
So reconsider before you build up your Blue Ray video library. The future isn't some new kind of disc, it's going digital instead of physical and it's already here.
