Then get the disk. No digital streaming service equals you own anything forever.
You can do D2D for 2 bucks for quite a few disk you already own on VUDU if you want convenience and portability. If you want to own something for the longest time possible you need hard copies.
I'm way ahead of you there. Anything I really want to keep, I have on either DVD, or Blu-ray, or UHD Blu-ray. I have all the Star Trek Movies on physical media, but only season 1 of the original TV series on DVD. I do use disc 2 digital all the time, if I want ot put something in the cloud as another backup. However, I checked the VUDU forums before posting back to say TV Shows are not eligible for disc to digital conversions.
Otherwise I would have checked on the following series I own on disc to see if i could get a digital copy:
The Jetsons Season 1
Gilligan's Island Series Seasons 1-3
The Dukes of Hazzard Series (Seasons 1-7
Knight Rider Series Seasons 1 - 4
Full House Series Seasons 1-8
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (full series)
Stargate SG-1 Full Series (1-10) season
Saved by the Bell Series Season 1-5
The Super Mario Brothers Supershow (full series)
Several Seasons of Walker Texas Ranger
and of course, Star Trek the original series (season 1) full series with my purchase on VUDU.
As you can see, I have quite a few classic series that would be nice to have in the cloud, but at least I don't need an internet connection to watch them, and I have them as long as the media lasts, and I can download episodes I want to watch offline with the VUDU mobile app, any shows I have in iTunes.
