am I experiencing Deja vu, or did some one change the name of the DVD is dying thread, I'm confused.
My two cents, again Blu Ray, HD DVD, vhs, call it what you want, its a means of delivery, and frankly, does it matter how the content is delivered, SD Card, USB Flash Drive, ESP, aliens, downloaded, of course we'll need to get business accounts with our ISPs. As long as the quality we are accustom to seeing from a BD, with the necessary audio tracks, and we have a file that we can keep and watch anytime we choose, and the delivery method is not cost prohibitive, it doesn't really matter how the content is delivered in my book. If some one is not getting paid a royalty to build a BD player, some one else is getting paying a royalty to make the software or media player that can play the media and maintain DRM.
I agree with those that like BD, its the preferred choice for delivery of high bit rate AV content at this current point in time, and I agree with Lee if I can save a trip to the store and down load a file of the same quality, that I can physically keep on my hard drive, I'm all good with that, but lets not get downloading confused with streaming whic in this day and age is a completely different delivery means all together, at least for now.
And regarding Apple, some one mentioned it in another forum, yes they are a business, and they are also a religion. "That's all I got to say about that"
