Reasons To Go With Blu-ray / Physical Media

It's fair to say that for many people a 1080p blu-ray player will provide an excellent cinema experience. Compared to DVD it really is a night and day difference. You will experience a clean, sharp, vibrant image providing the film is a recent release or a restored older title. 


Unlike streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon & Disney the quality of the image remains throughout the duration of the movie or TV show, Streaming services have to compete with available bandwidth, so it you have other family members streaming or playing computer games your film night can be impacted with a visual downgrade. Blu-ray simply does not have any real downsides in that regard.
