Any new information on how average disc prices in 2019 compared to previous years? Any inflationary forces at work or are prices mostly flat maybe even lower? They anecdotally seem flat to slightly lower based upon my personal expenditures.

I hope it is not presumptuous of me to post these two charts from the DVD & Blu-ray Release Report:

2019BlurayReleaseReport.jpg

2019DVDReleaseReport.jpg

There were 3,027 titles released on blu-ray (which includes 4K) in 2019 and that is a 7% increase over 2018.

The number of DVD titles released were up also; there were 10,866 titles released on DVD in 2019 and that is an increase of 2.4% over 2018.

There were 13,893 titles released on disc in 2019.

253,621 titles have been released on disc since the inception of the DVD format.

The details of the DVD releases from that seem to show a bit less reassuring picture as most std Movie/TV categories have dropped substantially (most of the general movie/TV categories). Special Interest and Sports increased substantially making up for most of the loss in other categories and accounted for 40% of the total.

TV Movies, Direct to Video Movie, Catalog title, new releases, TV Series all appear to have dropped.

I'll assume a lot of the Sports DVD are Wrestling discs and apparently a big industry of High School sporting events. Special Interest I'm not sure but possible ADULT videos, Girls Gone Wild, etc or extreme niche products? it also appears from a different chart that 70% of the total DVD releases are MOD (probably most DVDR)

Bluray seems to still be putting out mostly normal Movie/TV and while the MOD releases have increase, the replicated discs have remained amazingly stable at just over 2000 titles per year since 2014. I can't tell whether they lump or split out the pressed-replicated vs burned MOD types from their groups. Given they list around 800 BD MOD titles in 2019 and WAC/Universal/Sony account for close to 150+ replicated titles that would be a substantial difference.





A different chart I can't pull out of the pdf (p44 and 52 of the 12/31) "New Theatrical Release Activity On Blu-ray: 1997 - 2020" and similar chart for DVD show a rather significant drop in the % of new theatrical releases being put on DVD. BD appears to still be approx 50% in the 18-24 month post release (a bit of a drop for 2018 theatrical releases to 44% is bit bothersome), DVD are one point was 95% for a few years and the last 3-4 years appears to be sliding steadily and now is under 65-70%

The DVD breakdown is peculiar; the uptick in the special interest category is one thing, but that huge increase in the sports category is surprising. I guess them wrasslin' videos are more popular than I ever imagined.

"The big growth area for the DVD format is Sports on-demand, with the CBS Sports Digital Network leading the way in publishing high school sporting events nationwide on an on-demand basis. We expect this trend to include increases in both college-level and professional sporting events in the near future.

Of note, Coplay, Pennsylvania’s Smart Mark Video delivers a weekly slate of new DVD and Blu-ray on-demand releases to fans of the professional wrestling market (non-WWE). It would not come as a surprise if other niche sporting events were to develop similar publishing venues … again, cheap, simple and effective."

I suspect a lot of those sporting events at very very small groups of customers. The CBS DVD site has ESPN 30 for 30, a ton of College teams all with multiple DVDS, a handful of pro teams, and apparently there is a way to get local sports team
