Poll: How do you like your movies? Optical disc, or downloadable?

Gear Live Poll

Do you prefer your movies on optical media or in downloadable format?

Submitting ...

With the / format war being over, the new “war” if you will is the one between digital delivery of movies, versus good ol’ optical media. We want to know how you feel about this. Do you prefer buying movies using Apple TV, thus avoiding a trip to the local Target? Or are the type of person who prefers all the bells and whistles that something like a Blu-ray disc has to offer (7.1 lossless audio, pure 1080p video)? I think it is safe to say that we are moving towards a digital download lifestyle, but with current broadband speeds in the USA, we think that it might be a while before it can compete with optical. Your thoughts?

I like the convienence of downloadable/streaming video. I use the instant viewing from netflix all the time. However the quality can’t compete with my Bluray player either. Unless bandwidth takes a serious jump ahead I don’t see the optical discs going away anytime soon.

I also like being able to download and watch.
But there is something to be said for the permanence of a disk.

Downlaodable is the future and i am with that.

Well, right now optical because I do not have the right setup, but eventually I would like to move to completely downloadable.  It would be easier, cheaper, and quicker with the internet speeds in my area than driving to the video store or buying a DVD in a store.
