    Will Zimmerman - Been watching everyday since 2013! My question is, if Disney+ has the entire Disney/Marvel/Star Wars/Pixar catalog what is the point in buying the movies? I always pre-order Disney movies asap but if it will be on Disney+ plus that same day why would I ever pay for both? Will this impact GooglePlay and Vudu? Keep bringing the filthy!

    Physical media is still valid because you can never be 100% sure of your Internet connection and also what if Disney decides to pull access to some of their movies? They always have the right to add or remove content from their service. And what if their service become so expensive that you don’t want to pay for anymore? Sure right now it’s $7 a month what if it becomes $15 or $20 a month you won’t want to pay that anymore and once you disconnect the service you don’t have anything the show for it whereas if you buy physical media you’ll always have copies of your movies or shows that you paid for.

    Walt Disney has actually said that it will not be collapsing windows. Films will get a theatrical release and a traditional home-video release. Then, Disney+ will have the movies in the "pay-1" window.

    There's nothing wrong with physical media thing is you own it Disney can take it away if it's digital same thing with Netflix or any other streaming service

    I will be fine with digital as long as they somehow find a way to match the picture quality physical media has

    Maybe Disney+ won’t allow us to download their films? So we would have to depend on Wi-Fi unless we purchase those films... Just speculating.

    I like owning my own copy (physical or digital) because I have control over that copy. You yourself mentioned Disney's tendency to put things "in the vault." if they take something off their service, I no longer have it, UNLESS I own my own copy. Same thing goes with music. I won't pay for Spotify, but I will buy digital copies of new songs I want, even though that costs significantly more. Why? Because I will NEVER lose my music just because of some rights dispute.

  • Jordan Strong

    Yep, I would still buy the discs for movies like Endgame, Toy Story 4, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Main reason is that I am a completest. I already have all of the previous films for these films on disc...and I refuse to have an incomplete collection. So, for anything that is a sequel, yes, I will still buy the disc. For original films, I will base my decision on how much I liked the film.

    While I’m still a big believer in physical media, I could still see an argument where someone could buy a digital movie with Disney+ if they wanted to get bonus features. Idk why someone would do it for a marvel movie, but for Star Wars or maybe Pixar would make sense

    He’s my thing Digital Copies are still good. And I’ve gotten most of my movies for free. Because no one uses them. So it’s still good for movies and special features.

    I don't know, I live in a pretty rural small town with pretty spotty internet. If the wind blows too hard it's out. If it rains or snows, it goes out. I think the internet is still too unstable for most people to rely on.

    I suspect Disney will rotate their classic movies in and out of rotation, so if you want to watch a particular movie anytime you want, you need to purchase.

  • Love the Blue!
    Love the Blue! Month ago

    I have a question: Did Disney promise that all Star Wars, MCU, and Disney/Pixar movies would always be available all the time on Disney Plus, or just that all the Disney animated classics would always be available? Because I just heard the latter. Yes, they did promise that new movies would be available right away; I don’t think they promised they would be available all the time. If they rotate them out every six to twelve months or so then that would leave a window for purchasing. (And BTW I still don’t believe all of their Disney animated classics will be available: Are you telling me I’ll be able to stream “Song of the South”?)

  • Arnold Perez

    For me the main reason why I still buy physical media is to watch the behind scene stuff and to see the Director’s commentary so that’s a reason for me to keep buying Blu-Ray, unless Disney + offers that option with their movies

  • Michael Lamar Simeon

    My biggest problem with digital movies is you don't really own them. What's to stop Amazon, Apple, Disney, etc from deleting your copy and not refunding you. I mean we've read cases of this happening to other people and the people had no recourse. That's my biggest fear/concern of digital media

  • Carl Rood
    Carl Rood Month ago

    The one thing to keep in mind is that, like Netflix, they can periodically choose to not make titles unavailable at times. Disney was actually very big on that with physical media. They'd make a classic feature available for a time and then put it back in the vault for a generation.

    I still buy blu rays and now 4K blu rays, but i've NEVER bought a dvd or blu ray player for myself. I've always just used my game consoles. I just hope Xbox and Playstation keep making consoles that plays discs.

  • Maren Russell

    I live in a very rural area where the internet is not always the best (to put it nicely) I also have a collection of physical media that is over 500 titles strong. I will always want to own my copies of films and TV shows I love because I don't want my spotty internet deciding what I can and cant watch at any given time.
    All the cable and phone lines on my area have to come up over a mountain and through very wooded unpopulated areas to get to me and people up here know that service can get cut for days just cuz of a wind storm and down tree . With my DVD player and generator I can watch whatever i want no matter what .

    I will buy Avengers: Endgame on physical disc when it comes out - BUT I have a nice home theater room as well as a nice TV in another room. I also will NOT see it in theaters because the experience sucks. But I'm also slowing down my physical disc purchases because I've got ALL the movies I want on physical media, and most new movies aren't that good. And get off my lawn!

  • Tyler Wayman
    Tyler Wayman Month ago

    I think it depends on whether if Disney plus will keep all their films and new films available all time or have it be like Netflix where it comes and goes. If it's the latter than I will buy the film (digitally) so I can see it whenever and not worry about it going away. If Disney plus keeps all the films new and old available forever than no I wont purchase films under the Disney banner because I'll already be paying for plus.

  • Makaioshin
    Makaioshin Month ago

    Well, when you buy the physical copies, it COMES WITH THE DIGITAL COPY - so you get both. It's the best of both worlds. Also, with physical media, you can resell it in the future to make back some money if you want. Basically, you own it forever and can decide what to do with it rather than paying monthly (even if cheaper) for something you don't own.
    That being said, I will be using Disney+ for movies such as Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars because unlike Marvel, I don't plan on ever owning them physically anymore. So, Disney+ still benefits me there.

    Hard copies are way better. All these streaming services rely on 2 things: subscription and internet. If you don’t have one, then you can’t watch what you want. However, with a hard copy you can watch whatever you want without those 2. Same goes if you want to watch that movie at someone else’s place and they don’t have either of those 2 requirements.
    I’ll never ever ever go digital until they stop making hard copies.

    I will still buy physical media because on streaming it hard to find service that have options to watch it in Spanish or another language but also when you buy the physical version they give you digital version so you have backup when the internet is down or under maintenance.

    That's the point. Disney will now have you subscribe. They will make more money with subscription than with a one time buy of their properties. Subscription is where the money is, just look at Adobe with Photoshop and the like. And where do you think you're going John? You nor anyone esle is going anywhere. Disney has all the significant properties. They got you my man, they have us all.

    I think physical media is going to become a niche market like comic-books. You have collector's (like myself) who still want the physical copy of certain movies. In my case, I'm committed to buying MCU physical copies but everything else, I'm cool with just streaming.

  • Tim Chindles
    Tim Chindles Month ago

    Physical media will always be around. The market will eventually reach its bottom and then level out, it's still making billions of dollars, most of which is profit, after all. The same thing happened with CD's. Physical media will (at least for the foreseeable future) be much better quality, streaming services just can't provide anywhere near the same bitrate. Plus things like download limits, region restrictions, the fact that you don't actually own it, special features etc are all advantages that physical media has. It will still be around for decades to come.

    • Tim Chindles
      Tim Chindles Month ago

      But I mean, if they're already out of print then they're not really effected by companies putting out less titles.

    • Asian Movie Enthusiast
      Asian Movie Enthusiast Month ago

      Thanks for the response. The problem is that I already have a lot of lesser known stuff in my DVD collection that is out-of-print and also not available on a legal streaming site. In 10 years, how is anyone supposed to find these films? That's my concern.

    • Tim Chindles
      Tim Chindles Month ago

      Lesser known stuff is basically unaffected by this though since it's not as if those smaller, niche movies are selling gangbusters today. They already sell a relatively small amount and the people that buy them are core physical media fans. I personally buy a lot of stuff from Warner Archive, as long as they keep making a profit they'll keep making lesser known stuff, and making a profit is easier if they do smaller runs and/or sell directly to the consumer.

    • Asian Movie Enthusiast
      Asian Movie Enthusiast Month ago

      I'm not as positive as you are, but you make some good points. Fans of mainstream Hollywood movies probably have little to worry about, because it's practically guaranteed that MCU and Star Wars movies will be available in the future. However, fans of lesser known and international movies are going to suffer badly because availability is going to drop thru the floor once the physical media of those titles goes out of print. I'm seeing it already.

    Data caps. I now live where I am spoiled too, but in Alaska, in Mississippi and plenty of other places Data caps will continue to make physical media relevant. Now that net neutrality is gone, companies can throttle you there too. Large swaths of America can’t even do online gaming based on signal strength alone (like when I was in Mississippi) The end for physical media is farther away than you think.

  • COWS
    COWS Month ago +5

    We're still not remotely close to a reality in which digital media is superior to physical media in the slightest, regardless of what people say. Physical media will still be superior for probably another 5-8 years at least. The thing is- streaming is still pretty shit, quality-wise. If I buy a 4k blu-ray, I will be able to watch that movie IN 4k. If I watch a 4k movie on Netflix, the quality will continue to shift again and again, and it will NOT truly be 4k. Video compression completely destroys video quality whilst streaming, and until that is fixed, I will continue to see physical media as superior.

    Plus, regardless of which is better, I will continue buying blu-rays for as long as they're available, because I love having a collection. My blu-ray collection is probably one of my most prized possessions, and I'd like to keep it going for as long as possible.

    I rather have the physical media incase not able to have a service for any reason. cause if the service dont got the movie or file, then u can easy go to what u got and watch anything anytime possible. if anything just gotta bring the gear to play the file as long as u got the wires and remote and tv at place to watch it any. so they gonna have hard time trying get everyone or anyone to give up physical media anytime soon.

    • Love the Blue!
      Love the Blue! Month ago

      When it comes to *renting* I’m all over Digital. And back when Blockbuster started to fail, Video On Demand was available via most cable services. It didn’t make sense to spend the evening going from one video rental store to the next trying to find a remaining copy of a popular movie you wanted to view that night when you could just press a button on your remote. PLUS no late fees!

    Disney knows digital is here to stay they have put tons of money into this streaming channel Disney have movies at the cinema more or less every month so for me I’d be happy paying £15 a month for this channel that’s same as buying one digital movie a month I’m sure Disney will allow you to download content to be able to watch offline you can buy Apple lightening to hdmi cable so can then watch off you Apple device to any screen you want

      +Brandon Cross basically, AT&T estimated Hulu was worth $15 billion, and sold its stake based on that estimate. It was sold to Hulu, sources I read say that Disney and Comcast will divide up the stake. Seems like a lot of $ spent on something so small. I think Disney's plan is to bundle Hulu with Disney+ and ESPN+, so they probably want to own Hulu 100%.

      It was over AT&T's stake in Hulu. AT&T wanted to pay down debt from buying Time Warner, so it is selling off some assets. They are also starting their own competing streaming service. The stake has been sold to Hulu, so Disney and Comcast are left as the sole owners of Hulu.

    Iger said it still will be Digital and Physical Copies released on DVD and BLU-RAY. So new ones still will be released and it´s not sure what is faster this medias or on Disney+ But The streaming Service is an additional service. And mostly you get some extras that aren´t on Disney+ and there are a lot of people who likes the Extras and Specials because not everyone is pleased with such the movie alone. ;=)

      MrChrisDanger Month ago

      people love the covers and their collections as especially some exclusive Collection that isn´t on Disney+ and what about the extended special editions we can´t be sure to get these versions as well on Disney+.
      And big question will there be cut or uncut versions of the Disney Movies will be on Disney+ because some Movies were cut like The Avengers Coulson's Death Scene as an example.
      And Netflix does released some Marvel Series on Blu Ray and DVD so maybe Disney will do that as well. People want those stuffs they could release S7 of Clone Wars with great Extras on it.

    What bugs me about "streaming" it is that you don't OWN the movie. You subscribe and you get to watch the movie but once Disney decides to edit something or put out a new version you have to watch it. With physical releases, that movie is yours to watch. Without internet or taking up space on your devices.

    Don't forget about censorship. 10 years from now, if a special interest group gets "offended" by a character in a Disney film, Disney can make a PR movie and delete that film from their library and you won't be able to watch it ever again . . . unless you have your own copy.

    For me, with the content being available to be streamed, there is little incentive to buying digital copies. The argument could be made about offline viewing when there is no internet, but I am not in those situations often enough to warrant saving a local copy.

    As a side note, I still occasionally buy physical copies of select media, but only if there is something tangible worth it in the box beyond the disc (i.e. exclusive art book, collectible figurine, signed picture card, exclusive foldout poster, etc.). I am also an advocate of still maintaining physical copies of all media (music, books, movies, television, art) in libraries for long-term archival reasons. A paperback, 35mm film, art canvas, or vinyl LP could survive a Dark Ages-type event. I am not so sure about their all-digital version equivalents.

    I prefer physical media, but it's really hard for me to justify buying Disney movies on Blu-ray anymore once Disney+ launches. I'll probably still buy the ones that I really like, but will just watch the rest on the service.

    I just switched to digital a few months ago. I’ll keep purchasing movies from non Disney distributors. With blur ray 1080p to 4k and now talk of 8k u never know what’s gonna be next but I notice with I tunes they upgrade your quality for for free as long as u own it. Disney isn’t going anywhere your right about that ! But Netflix’s takes things on and off constantly and it’s so annoying.

    It's much better for Disney to have a predictable steady income from their library and IP. Same as Apple Music. Rather than hoping you spend anywhere between $25-$100 a year on content they now have you committed to $120/yr in a subscription fee every year.

    The home viewing industry always canablizes itself and theaters always win when that happens. Advances in the home market never effects theaters.

      True, but to studio heads, i imagine that they would look at it as "well, since 90%(anecdotal i know) of our target audience have internet, then what's the point in releasing physical media when we could just offer digital copies / streaming subscription at a much cheaper cost to us and to the customers...win win"

    I think some people will still buy BluRays for the special features. I don't think the movies on Disney+ will include commentaries, interviews, or behind the scenes "making of..."

    I still buy physical media because if I had to download/stream anytime I wanted to watch a movie, I'd blow past my datacap for the month. Plus, since I live in a semi-rural area, my internet coverage is spotty at times (due to weather or maintenance) and isn't as fast as those found in larger urban areas.

    People might buy for collectibles and extra content. But really, for the regular Joe and Jane there is no point...

    Can I see the films "offline"? I go on vacation to many places where the internet is unreliable, so I download a lot of films to my iPod. Can I do that with Disney+?

      I haven't seen that confirmed as a feature yet, but just about every streaming service has the option to download and watch offline. It is highly unlikely Disney won't include that feature.

      Yes. You can download and watch offline for as long as you remain a subscriber.

    I still prefer having physical media of films... I like having a library of DVDs and Blu-rays of my favorite movies. But, I will subscribe to Disney+ solely for 'The Mandalorian', and whatever else they've got in store, unique to the service.
