Boldly go, or just dumb___? When it comes to videos, DVD's look to be on their way out. Can Blu-ray be far behind? Fly Fishing Fantasies has chosen to host their new release, Paid in Full, online. What're the benefits to YOU?
Benefits of Online Video Hosting versus Disks:
- better picture quality than standard DVD’s
- cheaper than Blu-ray
- internet hosted so you never have to worry about damaging or losing (aka your fishing buddy lifted it) your DVD/Blu-ray or worry that you can’t play it once disks and disk players are totally phased out
- you can purchase from home and be watching your video the same day in some circumstances (ie we are not out filming)
- you can watch from any computer with an internet connection
- more money goes to the filmmaker and less to production costs, shipping and middle men making it more likely that the “starving artist” will live to tell another story
- more environmentally conscious than printing and recycling of disks and packaging
I'm sure there are other good reasons. Please, fill me in.
