    Let's not forget the average price of DVDs has dropped so that would reflect in revenue of DVDs sales.

    Small point perhaps but DVD is already "Digital."

    Aside from that, I fear you may be correct. Sadly, markets are controlled by numbers and there will always be more people [read customers] who will accept whatever method a film is delivered to them [and know no better than to consider it pristine and ideal] than there will be people [customers] who demand to own the movie they paid for outright, without a digital overlord that can decide [for whatever reason] to rescind or modify their ownership rights. It's a brave new world but I liked the old one better.

    For the average person, streaming makes more sense anyway. With the exception of titles for kids, they don't buy films, period. They watch something once and that's it. It was the same in DVD's heyday, but streaming saves them the trip to Blocklbuster.

    yes. That's the problem pretty much across the board. Too many "average" people.
