Where are you going DVD und Blu-Ray?
Depending on the country, Disney not only wants to offer new content in its own video streaming service, but also publish DVDs and Blu-rays or bring some films to the cinema. The media group makes this dependent, among other things, on the behavior of the audience in the respective country. So Disney keeps all possible options open.
Some film studios, on the other hand, have decided to first sell new films via digital stores and – if at all – only publish them as DVD or Blu-ray editions with a delay. For example, the film studio Universal Pictures and Warner, which belongs to the Sky owner Comcast, only offer many films in this country as video streams and are currently foregoing disc output. With the animated film “Trolls World Tour”, for example, this worked well, like that New York Times reports. The second part generated more sales in the three weeks after its digital release than the first Trolls part brought in in five months. The Warner Bros. film Wonder Woman 1984 has been shown exclusively on Sky since February 18, prior to its theatrical release. Sky Deutschland does not charge a surcharge for this. All you need is that Sky Ticket Entertainment & Cinema, which can be canceled monthly and costs 11 euros per month. Alternatively, users with a Sky-Q TV receiver can also watch the film via the Sky Cinema package.
