The Physical DVD And CD Format

So, first HMV and now blockbuster, 2 huge companies entered into administration that were dependent on the traditional CD and DVD format. So what does the future hold for the physical DVD and CD format? Is there a future for mass CD and DVD replication.

Well, there will always be advantages of a physical format over a digital format. For many customers the look and feel of a physical disc in an attractive case with printed literature is always going to be preferable over a digital download. The fact that you can buy a CD album or DVD movie and keep it stored for life is a big advantage over endless digital files that can easily be deleted or lost due to a disc drive failure.

A massive positive for the physical format is when buying Birthday or Christmas gifts. Unwrapping your present to find a nice shiny case containing your favourite music artist or movie is irreplaceable. Giving a gift card for your favourite download site is never going to be quite the same as an actual CD or DVD. Downloads and streaming are obviously here to stay but surely there will always be a demand for the good old physical disc?
