It always seems as if when you get used to one thing, the next big thing becomes the hot commodity, and you are stuck with all of the old stuff. Everybody has a closet full of items that were hot one season and get you laughed at the next. The same is true for electronics. If you see somebody using a ten year old flip phone, you might wonder why it is that they haven't upgraded.If you see somebody with an original IPod classic strapped to their belt, the size of a paperback novel, you might have some questions. This is one of the problems when it comes to upgrading your movie collection. For some reason, VHS lasted a long time without having anything challenging it for supremacy. In fact, the only real threat that it had for nearly twenty years was the ill-fated laserdisc.And to be honest, between the cost and the size of the things, those discs really never had a shot. But then the DVD made an appearance and took over rather quickly. It only took a couple of years for people to see the benefits of the DVD and soon, when prices dropped, people made the change and it seemed as if everybody had a large collection of movies to watch at any time.Today, Blu-ray has become the format of choice for many people, and because they hold so much information and are suitable for the HD set ups that most people have, the Blu-ray should stick around for a while. It already beat out HD-DVD and is simply upgradable to 3D for most players with a quick download. And with the right HDMI cables, all of a sudden you have an incredible home theater combination.There are some other ways to get your content; you don't even have to use a disc format if you don't want to. Like music, there has been a digital revolution when it comes to watching television. You can just download your favorite TV shows and movies right from the internet. You don't have to store the movies in special books or fill your book shelves with the things. Of course, many people still want to have a hard copy, and just like having a CD or an album, having the artwork is important. But with a plethora of ways to enjoy your movies and television, there is no reason that you can't find what you want.
