Streaming and digital revenue ready to surpass DVD sales for first time ever According to a new PricewaterhouseCoopers study, consumers are finally spending more money on streaming and digital downloads than they are on buying and renting physical media.
Digital revenue is expected to top $9.5 billion this year, with sales of physical media dropping to $7.8 billion.

Streaming and digital could be a $12 billion industry by 2017, added the company.

Netflix, Hulu and iTunes are the biggest gainers in the industry, but streaming and digital download options are becoming more plentiful on a regular basis.

Wait, WHAT?

Streaming and digital IS POPULAR? BULL****!!!!

According to my isp, the average household only uses 54.7 gigs a month.

I'm one who thinks the government should keep their nose out of most everything, but it really is to the point that we just about need them to step in and force the isp's to do something about their throttling / data caps.
