Discover the Advantages of Downloading DVDs

Aug 17, 2007
DVD downloads are fast becoming one of the most popular ways for people to get and build movie collections without having the leave the comfort of their own homes. Fast, easy and more affordable than regular DVD purchases, this might be a relatively new trend, but it's one that's very likely here to stay.

The rise of DVD downloads for movies has given rise to a multitude of sites that are dedicated solely this pursuit. These sites range from membership only ventures to single download purchase sites.

Let's take a look at both and some of the common advantages they both share.

Membership sites: These sites offer their members a variety of packages for DVD downloads that can range from unlimited movie downloads to a set number of downloads a month. They can also range from those that offer rentals only to those that provide outright purchases of content. Membership sites might not always have the newest selections, but their variety is nonetheless impressive.

Single buy sites: Many sites have popped up that range from big-name productions to lesser-known entities that offer DVD downloads by the single. This means rather than memberships, users pay as they go, buying a movie at a time. These sites, too, can offer rentals that will sunset after they have been watched. The sunset mechanism is a programming feature that disables a download for viewing after X amount of time or after it's been watched in its entirety.

Both types of DVD download sites have a fair amount in common when it comes to advantages for users. These advantages include:

* Lower pricing than regular DVD sales and event rentals. Since delivery and packaging charges aren't involved in downloads, the costs are typically a fair amount lower. These savings realized by studios and middlemen are passed on to buyers.

* Assurances of legality. As long as DVD download sites have licensing agreements, those who use them don't have to concern themselves with copyright issues or other legal concerns as long as downloads are used within the bounds of the user agreements.

* Easier storage. DVD downloads don't take up physical space in a home like a regular collection. Since they are stored on a computer or on the download companies own site, there's no need to worry about housing buys and taking up room in a house. This can be particularly useful for those who want to create a large collection without having to sacrifice shelf space to do so.

* Speed in access. Since DVD downloads are available around the clock, people who choose to go this route can avoid trips to the store to buy movies and they don't have to wait for shop hours to roll around. This form of obtaining movies and videos is truly an on-demand service.

* Selection. Whether it's a membership site or a buy by the movie service, the selection available generally is greater than any single movie store could possibly offer. Since downloads don't require store space, selection isn't an issue.

DVD downloads are rapidly becoming the way movies are sold. There are many options available for those who choose to go this route and as the trend becomes more entrenched, the better the options are.
