Im still clinging to Betamax. It will make a big comeback one day & all those films Ive missed out on since ET will be re-released.

Sorry to hear that you have missed all these great movies.If you insist on watching the new movies on your Betamax player then probably following gadget can solve the problem

This is the Sanyo Betamax model I had ... rather heavy!

Got the last one at Tesco Extra in Hays

Mental price. Cheaper than a lot of Blu-ray sets!! Will always want the physical media. Streaming films is crap as a concept but of course - most people aren't fussy about quality and prefer to throw money away each and every month.

It sadly does seem like streaming is winning out to physical media and with not good reasons.

Whilst I do use Netflix to watch films, any that I do want for posterity I buy on Blu Ray. Although Netflix streams in 1080P the bit rate of such a stream is lower than Blu Ray and you do not get the same quality picture or for that matter uncompressed audio.

Fox already have stopped releasing certain TV shows on Blu Ray in favour of streaming.

The general public first shut their ears off to uncompressed audio and now it is happening with their eyes...yet ironically the marketing push for 4K TVs in the home is rife.

The UK simply does not even have the infrastructure for the bandwidth required for streaming high bit rate data streams, many rural and even semi rural places are still reliant on ADSL some places are still fortunate to even be able to get 1mb bandwidth maximum.

Seems that those of us that want better quality music and better quality video are becoming the minority...seems we are taking a step backwards instead of forwards.

Plenty to cling on to though. Judging from those pics...

When I was young, my neighbours took the fateful route of Philips V2000 > Betamax > VHS

Although, there is an unexpected benefit of the sound one - there are now TONS of cd's appearing in charity shops - often mere months or less after the album came out - and they're often priced at just £1.99 each - presumably because so many are just ripping and giving them away - unaware of what they're missing.

Even after ripping to FLAC I still would never give away my CD Collection, they are valuable backups.
