Far gone are the days of the Friday night trip to Blockbuster, hoping they still have a copy of the newest movie available. Over the past few years, Americans have ditched DVDs and Blu-ray discs for streaming services, such as Netflix and Hulu. In 2015 alone, the Wall Street Journal reported, “Sales of DVDs and Blu-ray discs meanwhile plummeted 12 percent.”
There is something to be said about the way movie, and even TV shows, are being watched across America. If streaming is the future of digital entertainment, ditching physical discs is the obvious choice. The decision to transition to a streaming service might be simple, but where do you go from there?
The biggest factor for most is speed. High speed internet is required to stream the content you want and avoid annoyances like buffering and long load times. For example, services such as Netflix or Hulu require different speed requirements for streaming. At lower levels of speed video quality is compromised, and at the highest levels of speed users experience the most precise and desired video quality.
