Quote from: SiL on Jan 12, 2023, 06:27:55 AMPhysical media releases have been falling for almost two decades now. DVDs peaked in 2005 and Blu Ray peaked in 2013. The streaming market is worth ten times the physical release market, and the average physical release buyer is a 25-39 year old who grew up with it and keeps building their collection.The rate of decline slowed during the pandemic, and as more streaming platforms come out I imagine it's slow further, if not reverse. But it's absolutely true to say the old physical media market is long, long dead.

But it's a small market compared to what it once was so it's not surprising some companies are not bothering.
