While the mainstream world may not yet be hip to downloads I consider them to be the future of content delivery and should not be taken lightly. Like HD back in the day it was a buzz word until the day it landed in our laps and forced the masses to take notice and adapt. This is how I see downloads going. Just my two cents.
Two years later and it seems digital HD downloads and HD streaming are still just blips on the revenue radar.
Blu-ray is looking good for that ten year lifespan.
