U.S. 1st-Quarter Sales of DVD, Blu-ray Disks Fell 20%, FT Says

U.S. first-quarter sales of film-related packaged goods, including DVD and Blu-ray disks, fell by almost a fifth, from $2.6 billion to $2.1 billion, the Financial Times reported, citing Digital Entertainment Group, which represents film studios and consumer electronics companies.

The figures suggest that people are shifting their spending away from buying films to streaming them online or watching them via film subscription services, the newspaper said.
