From a digital thread? Surely a balanced number of members would be better, no?

No, I just don't want it to return to the lopsided 70/30 of previous times (before it was moved).

I think UHD/4K discs are way too late to the party to make any difference, especially with streaming versions (albeit inferior) becoming increasingly available.

I don't love the subscription model, by the way, but it's clear that it's what most people are opting for. I just hope it will coexist with digital sales.

It will co-exist with disc also. I would bet disc will outlast Digital HD (but obviously not subscription).

No one would have guessed CD and vinyl would still be going and ITunes Music downloads all but dead. ITunes MP3 downloads were the future. I see similar happening here (Netflix, Disney are essentially Spotify and Apple Music in the scenario I described)

I wouldn't take that bet.

see Music Industry...Spotify, Disc sales are continuing to decline.

Yeah, that was my point. Everyone and their mother were saying MP3 was the future and where are they now? Downloads gathering digital dust while people stream on Spotify and Apple Music (with CD still available and Vinyl.) The comparison to Digital HD is evident.
For example, how many will buy Marvel on Digital HD when they can just wait for it to drop on Disney+ once they have seen it at the cinema? For the rest, Disc is there for the quality.
I feel Digital HD has just come at the wrong time when the buffet subscription was (and still is) booming.
The lack of excitement or interest for the format from the industry is deafening.

Sure, disc sales are dropping but DVD has been here two decades, that was always going to happen. It peaked in 2008 for goodness sake. Digital HD sales YOY are not making up for the slide in disc sales, only subscription is doing that to a certain degree.

Why is it so important to win the argument about which will survive the longest? Perhaps discs will still be pressed and digital lockers will continue to exist while subscription streaming rises further in popularity. Then everyone will be happy. We'll soon know.

Let's leave it at that and get back to the original purpose of this thread: sharing current digital strategies among those of us who choose to go that way...

Hey, you gave your opinion, I gave mine.

Ok, fair enough, back to topic. (Even though it wasnít wildly off topic to begin with)
