For some odd reason, I get the impression some think I am defending the trend .. that could not be more from the truth .. I'm simply pointing out the facts .. and, as I've stated, I don't like it anymore than anyone else does .. but, it is what it is, simple as that ..
Increased Bandwidth and the advent of 5G will accelerate the issue (no pun intended) .. combined with lower On Demand per title costs .. another prediction I made some years ago was, when streamers can get the cost of an On Demand new release title down to under $2.00, physical media will suffer dramatically, more so than it has already ..
I'm 74, so it may not happen in my lifetime, but the day will come at some point, where all physical media is supplanted .. there may or may not be, at that point, a small base of buyers still willing to buy a disk ..
This whole issue is Generational Change and it's happening as we speak ..
Oddball: Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
