Despite the complex playback setting, DVD disc is cheap and it is the choice of many movie fans to collect movies. You can play DVDs on a big screen without any download or loading process. Besides the complete plot, a DVD movie always contains commentary, highlights, bonus, behind the scenes, interviews and so forth. What's more, viewing a DVD movie with family members and friends is a long-held habit of many people. On the other hand, although movie streaming services are flooding in, due to the varied technology standards, the quality of streaming content differs. Of courses, streaming also has its own merits like low prices, rich resources, convenience, small size, etc. With the rapid development of related technology, streaming will meet people's demands fully and DVD will inevitably fall by the wayside like VHS/cassette tape, but not now. Therefore, you can choose DVD or streaming based on your own needs.
