Re: Are We Witnessing The End of Physical Movie Media?

simple math:

lord of rings trilogy & hobbit trilogy both extended additions in 4K = 1TB worth of data in 4K true quality media (110Mbps)

so... for people like me who like to do mini trilogy marathons in a weekend.... data caps would be horrible in a months duration. I'm currently around 500gig/mo without major streaming... throw movies in their at 4K and man I'd be at some 2-3 TB worth of data.

Data caps are extortion. And I wave the number one at them all.

They are extortion. After thinking more about this, I think that physical media will stay in play for a very long time, mostly because of the math Talley mentioned. People are watching more and doing more online that will bring them closer to the cap long before the month is up. Therefore the truly HQ stuff will have to remain on disc or we will lose the HQ movies and music.

Good Listening
