Will DVD Films Make a Come Back?

Posted by Ian Stewart on

Just like we saw a comeback with vinyl records and record players, it’s always possible DVDs will come back to the mainstream like they once were.

Although they're still relatively popular for film buffs and music collectors, DVDs still aren't how they once were. If you're anything like me, then you have a particular love for DVDs.

The ability to buy the specific film you want, the sound it makes when you put it into your DVD player, and your collection as it begins to grow. It’s something that I love and is tied deeply to DVDs.

With that being said, the real question is whether or not DVDs will make a comeback. Although it’s absolutely possible, it’s nearly impossible to predict the future. Nonetheless, let’s discuss why they might make a comeback someday.

Disadvantages of Streaming

Don’t get me wrong, there are a ton of advantages tied to streaming. However, with a subscription package for a streaming provider like Netflix or Hulu, you’re limited to whatever they provide.

With DVDs, you can directly order the exact film or television show you want to watch. Plus, it’s yours to rewatch and look at forever.

You more than likely don't have a lot of people you know who are prominent DVD collectors, so it'll give you something unique to do on your own.

Will DVD Production Ever End?

Technically speaking, just about any current technological invention will eventually meet an end. As newer and better devices are made, the older technology will not be utilized like it once was.

However, I don't think this will happen any time soon. I do believe that at some point, people are going to start collecting DVDs similar to how vinyl records made a comeback.

Unfortunately, they’re going to come to an end someday. I’m not sure when, but eventually, everything we know will come to an end.

Why Should You Buy DVDs?

There’s a variety of reasons to consider as to why you should buy DVDs. For starters, it’s something unprecedented and different that’ll make you stand out.

We're all searching to do something unique that gives a sense of accomplishment. Plus, you can order what you're looking for, and buy the exact quality you want.

Just something to consider. It’s always a nice touch to have a variety of physical copies of anything in your household.

Future of DVDs

As noted, the future of anything is extremely unpredictable. With DVDs, they’re going to come to an end at some point.

Whether that end is a few years or a hundred years, we'll never know. Plus, they may turn into a collector's item someday.

Just like we look at technology from the early 1900s, people in the 2100s will look at DVDs the same way.

As weird as that sounds, that is definitely the future of DVDs, whether we like it or not. For now, you should consider having your own DVD collection. It's a nice change of pace from streaming you might end up enjoying.
