DVD has been dead since flash memory hit the 4 gig mark and blu-ray since they hit the 64 gig mark. I as a consumer have been waiting to buy movies on flash and flash only for way too long. I am almost so use to it enough to just not bother if they keep me waiting. I would rather have a physical copy of a movie but dvds are so wasteful to buy for kids or teens. They scratch em, crack em and break them way to easily and when the do break them they also become a physical hazard to our younger kids. So Disney if you want me to buy your movies for my kids put em on flash memory as dvds are DEAD you and the rest of movie world just need to get over it and give me, the consumer, what I want. Soon we will all be so used to a life with out physical media that taking that trip down flash memory lane will be for not.

I still like buying DVDs of movies I really really like, but that's about it.

Disney boss Bob Iger has seen the writing on the wall, and in big, bold letters, it says, "Consumers have better things to do than sit around watching movies.

Kids are gradually not watching movies anymore--that's sooooo 1990s to invite friends over for movie night, and Disney has like a zillion releases in a month. I haven't watched a Disney movie in its entirety since I was 12. Plus, to me it seems that Disney movies have similar stories or plots between one and another given movie.

Maybe if they wouldn't charge a million dollars for a DVD of something that was originally released 40 years ago they'd have more sales. I stream Netflix... just wish they would have more new releases....

I'm going to say it. Not only is DVD dead... but so is Blu-Ray. People just don't know it yet.
