Blank blu-ray is prohibitively expensive, while there are some benefits to have a physical copy of data as opposed to hdd/ssd, the cost per TB in blu-ray terms is at least £80, that's not taking into account discs lost though errors burning. HDD 1tb is less than £40, and easier to reuse and quicker to write to. Long-term storage is more cost effective and far easier using good decent a hdd backup system. They've killed this market by over pricing the product. It's old tech. Now and should be a fraction of the cost for blank media
It is my belief that the prices are pitched to ensure that streaming services are attractive.
Once the product is made, a licence is the most effective way to generate revenue on a digital product. Making physical copies adds all sorts of costs and physical media will have a diminishing market as time goes by as streaming is made cost effective.
Blu-ray movies are too much money. I think this because almost every person has a DVD player in their house, they also have Blu-ray players. You do not need a Blu-ray player because for how much more money they are it is not worth all of that money for just a couple of features.
Although the images on HD televisions are fantastic when Blu-ray discs are played, the average consumer doesn't want to pay $30 or more for such high quality. Otherwise, DVDs and digital copies wouldn't be so popular with consumers. Online streaming services are much more popular as the average consumer realizes there is only so much HD screens can offer aside from better quality.
Yes,blue ray discs are too expensive for the averagfe customer.In todays economy people are rarely in the position to pay 30 dollars or more which turns out to be just a few hours of entertainment so most movie lovers choose the regular version which most people feel is just as good.
Given the fact that the government says that inflation is not really taking place and the fact that Blu-Ray discs have been out for so long, I do feel that their price is too high for the average consumer. Since the majority of Americans are actually relatively poor these prices are out of control.
No, I do not think that they are to expensive for the average consumer, but they are not really much better than dvd, and dvd's are a lot cheaper. So as a smart consumer, people tend to buy dvd's instead just so they can save money, and get the same quality.
BluRay discs are not too expensive for the average consumer. They're the same price as regular DVDs were, when they were the superior video format. Plus, you get a better picture with a BluRay disc. If you can't afford to buy a BluRay disc, then you probably shouldn't be owning a BluRay player to begin with.
