With the streaming age upon us physical media is becoming a thing of the past.
Books, CDs, records, tapes, DVDs, even Blu-Rays are all forms of media that are being abandoned for tablets, smartphones, and other devices.
The convenience of gaining access to, purchasing, and enjoy an endless supply of entertainment is quite enticing, but come on, you don’t really own that media…think of it more as a rental. What happens if a server goes down, your account gets hacked, or you can’t gain access to your accounts? You have to re-purchase the media that you had acquired in the past. What a pain!
Now, I do appreciate what streaming and handheld devices do, but physical media is where it’s at! With physical media you always have the desired movie, show, song, or book ever accessible. No buffering. No low battery. No incorrect passwords. You can put on a movie or show, flip open a book, or spin a record and enjoy without having to rely on a paid service to let you enjoy these forms of entertainment.
Now with Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox they have announced that many of the Fox titles are getting put in a vault and will not be available through streaming. WHAT!? Now is the time to stock up on DVDs, Blu-Rays, and CDs before some of your favorites become unavailable for the foreseeable future. Here’s one title that could possibly disappear…
