    DVD-Blurays are here for sometime. Broadband carriers are already bringing up bandwidth throttles, which will hamper the Streaming of HD Quality videos.
    Millions of people still don't have, Broadband that will support HD quality streaming. Millions more live in Rural areas that are DECADES away from getting broadband, and DVD-Bluray will be the only way for them. Now were we get DVD-Bluray's will be changing, though.

    I agree with you and should have clarified it with the fact that i believe Blu-Ray will be around awhile.. Once Blu-Ray is the main hard copy format, the outlet availability will likely change. I do live in a rural area, but i don't rent anything except occasional PPV on Directv Cineman in HD. I usually buy Blu-Ray though.

    So why should I pay either $5.99 or $6.99, each, to watch the Blu-ray versions, when I can wait a few weeks and get a copy as part of my existing Netflix membership? I know! To feed the greedy Hollywood moguls who think that, by postponing release of product to rental outfits, they'll make more money through sales and PPV. But not from me!

    Peace,

    :lol:

    The Blind Side is currently available from Blockbuster in-store, on-line, and by mail. Netflix says it will be available on 4/20/2010.

    We will see who is still in business this time next year. Netflix or Blockbuster.
    Better enjoy any discount and early showing you can get out of Blockbuster while you can.

    I don't think any responsible person doubts Netflix will survive and likely continue to prosper for the foreseeable future. The same can't be said about Blockbuster.

    Peace,

    I don't know why you directed your comment to me? I simply reported the dates that the DVD would be available on Blockbuster and on Netflix. I made no comment about which was better for me.

    On second thought, I do know why. lol :rolleyes:

    I just wait for movies to air on the premiums. It's easier for me.
