Topic: Investments In The Future Of Home Media.
The future of home media is sort of up in the air currently, and I wanted to raise a few questions in this thread to get some opinions and advice on this topic.
So as of now, here's what I have access to Movie wise.
I own a Blu-Ray with small collection of Blu-Ray disc's.
A large enough 1080p HDTV.
Local Movie Rental.
iTunes(no apple tv)
Local Stores(Movie Section)
With that in mind, here's my first question…
What do you believe (between BluRay/DVD Disc's, Netflix-instant, and iTunes format's) which is CURRENTY the best way to watch movies at home? Now by best I don't just mean quality, but also considering convince, features and prices.
Personally I enjoy making of's, BTS, deleted scene and some commentaries, as much as watching the film itself, so naturally I favor the Disc format simply because of all it can offer. Unfortunately the disc format is the least convenient and probably the most expensive, and I'm not a rich person.
Netflix is the most convenient but its selection is pre determined and the quality is the least satisfying.
ITunes is something I haven't used much. I know it's library is virtually infinite, but I honestly don't what it has to offer other then the film/show, if anything. I also don't know about the quality. I assume it's not as good as disk but not bad by any means.
So with streaming quickly becoming the primary format, and the rental store's dying out, here is my second question…
What should I be investing in as far as the future is concerned? I don't think things are going to change to drastically any time soon but I want to at least try to be putting my money in something that is going to last.
Also technology wise I'm sure 4k is starting to get a foot in the door, as well as 3D, and other tech things, which I'm taking into account!
