-- Blu-ray dvd I remember.
Ma I must've been like for five years ago I went to interview a direct a movie director Brett Ratner is his name -- did like that.
Movies with Charlie Chan and and I should probably do my research.
Yeah it's gonna say yeah.
-- if you if you know the movie I'm talking about the brunt right it's like like a buddy movie with Charlie Charlie or with.
I'll get to -- -- all look -- -- while we're talking about this anyway he handed me a Blu-ray copy Blu-ray dvd copy of this movie.
Wish -- could need to watch because of what the heck that what the heck is Blu-ray.
Dvds are always the next big thing every all of -- all the dvds are gonna be on this format now and you can throw away your old.
Dvi player actually meanwhile I've never it I've never gotten a Blu-ray dvd player and now all I'm I'm reading.
That a lot of other people haven't here.
This is the issue and it -- the thing is Blu-ray makes so much sense okay if you look at the if you look at -- strictly from the numbers high definition TV.
Is -- much higher resolution -- ordinary television and you need something a different disk.
That's going to give you all the pixels and ordinary dvds while -- sharper and clearer than a minute cable feed -- television feed.
It just doesn't give you enough resolution there's a reason we have blu -- However however -- -- have a heck of a time convincing consumers of this and even today we just.
We just have some month mission for an analyst who said that.
Going forwards this year we're still going to see the same split that they're selling may be.
Half dvd players and -- Blu-ray players a lot of people are still even have the TVs they just aren't buying the Blu-ray players.
Global quick pull what we're all here yes I have a half a high definition TV -- -- this year okay I have a Blu-ray player.
I'm a dork.
-- -- I don't know I do I know -- just got your first high definition television set this year I was cheap I was told lawfully -- they came -- like a couple hundred bucks great players are cheap they'll yes I have one.
And you have a high definition I have -- media or don't have a blew it I don't have the Blu-ray player.
And I stopped buying that there was a time when I was buying dvds -- I wanted you know to it to amassed this great dvd libraries but.
And I am my wife is like why are we getting what why do you keep ITT PD's you're watching -- like I know it's like to have them just that -- like to have them that if I ever wanna pop in the you know All About Eve which is a great movie I'm still trying to find out the name -- talked about before I could do that but.
But -- stop.
Why I don't buy them anymore I don't buy you know -- it and now they're streaming video there's Netflix so you can.
You don't have to buy any dvd is it is for iTunes offers dvd rentals if you have like an apple TV.
Device only choice only choice that -- -- faces an answer the question is what exactly has been.
Holding back Blu-ray is at a price thing -- not really -- price thing you can get for seventy bucks these days you they're not expensive.
I think just a little more expensive than dvd players were that the bottom dropped on the dvd player market almost instantaneously aggregate -- for twenty bucks right it's been.
Four years five years now the -- resident and on the market they won the battle against high definition dvd which -- the other format there was a whole format war for a couple years.
It's strictly Blu-ray they're cheaper these days why are people buying them it might be the straining thing.
Its interest in -- people realize many of the manufacturers.
Of the Blu-ray players -- building streaming functionality into their players so if you like the end is on.
Streaming function for example you get that Panasonic players if you like Netflix you can get that certain Samsung players that functionalities built in so.
Gone by the Blu-ray player you get the streaming till they're kind of like cannibalizing themselves -- -- living I think they're terrified about the streaming market which a lot of people been moving to a people say we'll just easier faster seamlessly to the resolution's not as good but movement was good enough.
It's good enough and if you have a high definition televisions that looked pretty damn good.
