pati torrents/torrentz wala na.
If torrent downloads are non existent anymore, mukhang babalik ako sa DVD...

Mababa kasi resolution ng DVD, HDTVs became affordable even for the masses. The DVD is obsolete for flat screens. I haven't watch a DVD movie for like 4 years since having an HTPC. Torrents also killed the DVD which is far way better quality than the DVD.

DVD kasi malabo sa full HD LED na 40" pataas, pag 32" lang di masyado halata.

pero yung downloaded movies, mas malinaw talaga kesa DVD. sad to say but its the truth.

download contents both legit or otherwise are killing the DVD and other physical media,  Internet service connection has improved in terms of price VS speed.

IMO, dvd is not dead yet.

So long as the distributors release new titles, there will always be buyers.. Although cost is now a major factor..

Gone are the days when the distributors can release new titles in multiple editions at price points of P750 and up. These days, with the barebones release, people usually wait for the prices of the new titles to go down to an acceptable level (i.e., 3 for P500 or lower)..

It still has some life. Lot's of Filipino titles should take advantage of this period.

Unless Filipino films get regular bd releases, dvds will remain as the sole option not counting torrent availability. Sadly most indie films cannot be found even thru dvds but you may be lucky with torrents.

Have not bought a DVD in the last 3 years... My collection is still with me, just a big shelf in my apartment. Right now I'm acquiring tv series via online, plus the occasional movies.
