彭博社:2012年人们在互联网上观看电影的数量将超过光盘

依据彭博社的数据,在2012年,人们在互联网上观看电影的数量将超过人们通过光盘观看电影的数量。彭博社预计,2012年人们将通过互联网观看34亿次电影,而DVD和蓝光碟片的销售量将会只有24亿。研究还发现,亚马逊(Amazon)和Netflix占据了整个在线付费电影的94%。
但是,研究人员也指出,虽然互联网发展迅猛,但是想要取代光盘还需要时日,即使在 iTunes Store出现九年后,CD依然是重要的音乐消费方式。《生活大爆炸》中GEEK们对蓝光碟片的痴迷也证明了光盘还是有很大的市场的。
文章注释:Netflix: Netflix是一家在线影片租赁提供商。公司能够提供超大数量的DVD,而且能够让顾客快速方便的挑选影片,同时免费递送。Netflix已经连续五次被评为顾客最满意的网站。可以通过PC、TV及iPad、iPhone收看电影、电视节目,可通过Wii,Xbox360,PS3等设备连接TV。

Pop the champagne and up the bandwidth, because 2012 is the year we finally do away with discs. According to a Bloomberg report on IHS Screen Digest, more viewers will stream movies than watch them on disc, an inflection point that can only mean the relatively quick demise of high-density optical media. Streaming will increase to 3.4 billion titles this year, up from 1.4 billion. Blu-ray and DVD consumption will top out at 2.4 billion.

The study also found that Amazon on Netflix accounted for 94% of all paid movie consumption online

In a hilarious aside, the author of the IHS report, Dan Cryan, noted: “But the transition is likely to take time: almost nine years after the launch of the iTunes Store, CDs are still a vital part of the music business.” He clearly meant to write “of the music business in 2001.”

Arguably there are still plenty of people around the world buying DVDs and CDs but Blu-Ray is ready to hit a brick wall. Why invest in HD movies in optical form when you can get the same quality in a download on your newish smart TV or with a lower-end set-top box. The developing world is definitely still mostly optical, but as broadband speeds increase that could quickly change. Considering most big movies appear in digital form – legally or illegally – shortly after release, it definitely takes the bloom off the release window rose to pick up a DVD months after the movie closed.
