DVD industry in crisis as sales slump (The Guardian)

The DVD, the fastest-adopted electronic consumer product at its commercial introduction in 1998, became the film studios’ biggest cash generator, funding a screen production boom. The industry generated $14bn (£9bn) by 2004, with more than 250m discs sold each year in the UK. Broadcasters shared in the windfall as living room shelves groaned under the weight of multimillion pound-selling TV box sets of The Sopranos, The Wire and The Office. Your DVD collection revealed as much about your personality as those neglected vinyl LPs, left to moulder in the attic, once did.
