Buying solely during sales was a contributing factor in killing Astrovision.

Ampanget na rin kasi ng quality ng mga DVDs. Parang mga japeyks na rin. Part of the reason why I stopped collecting a few years ago.

Bill Gates has predicted during the early 2000s that movies will be bought and delivered on line or thru micro storage (microSD) and that VHS/VCD/DVD rentals and stores will be out of business soon. It's now happening.

Konti na rin lang ang bumibili ng dvd/bluray players. Mas mura kasi ang media player at mag-download ng movies on line.

There's a buy 3 take 1 promo for Blu-rays going on now. Some Blurays priced at only P250-499. Could have bought in either Astroplus or Odyssey in Megamall. Astro has their Blurays locked in a glass cabinet, so its hard to see all the titles and pricing. Odyssey has fewer titles but they're all accessible on the shelves. So decided to buy at Odyssey :p Some of the Astro vinyl records are also on sale, but I think some are under consignment from Satchmi and if you go to the Satchmi store in Mega they're cheaper there. Not sure why Astro even bothers selling videogames when they can't match the prices in Datablitz or iTech even during sales.

Astro Megamall just closed :( Was still able to buy several Blurays on sale last week, they didn't say anything about shutting down.

Now, I really miss the fun and hassle of going to Astro Podium, whenever there are sales of really good titles and Collectors Edition DVDs.  I made it a point to be there when the store opens para makapamili agad. My most prized haul yata nun is The Matrix Ultimate Collection, if I remember correctly.

This. I used to go all the way from Marikina to Astro Podium also during their much awaited DVD sale events. Daming tao rin noon, many who should be PDVD members of old. Ngayon puro download at streaming na lang....hehe....

Same with Astro Podium. On one sale that's where I got a bunch of great titles for cheap like the Band of Brothers tin case.

Sa Astro sale ko rin nabili iyong mga Superbit (Spider-Man & The Fifth Element) titles dati na I wouldn't buy in their original price.

Those were the days when we haul DVD's at Astro Podium. There are times I go Friday Saturday Sunday just to grab those sale items. Sabi kasi nung store clerk..."balik ka bukas sir, may mga lalabas pa"....balik naman ako. :D

I also met a lot of fellow members during the sale which later became friends. Ngayon wala na, isolated na halos lahat sa DL at streaming.

Update, sumilip ako sa SM North and bukas pa nga ang Astrovision and Astroplus dun. According to the staff, the 2 other remaining branches are SM Aura and SM Naga. Marami pang Blurays na naka-sale from P125-P500. Although newer discs (Greatest Showman) and other blockbusters (Star Wars, Avengers) full price (P1550+) pa rin.

Their SM Aura branch is more of a gadget store than a music store. Small area na lang yung CDs and DVDs/Blu-ray. They sell usb cables, speakers, chargers, power banks etc as their main business already.
