A long, long time ago, when I was just a child, I got my first DVD player. My first DVD player was made of what seemed to be pure steel and it was approximately the size of a twin bed. I think it cost some crazy amount, and I loved it. The only problem was, it was almost impossible to find DVDs for it. I used to go to the local video store and browse the selection of twenty or so DVDs, make a few selections, and religiously watch the same movies on DVD just because I was one of the few people who had a DVD player. When I first got my Blu-ray Player, I was afraid it was going to be the same thing. Luckily though, technology is moving along a little faster now, and there are a lot of places that have a wide selection of Blu-ray discs.
Netflix is constantly increasing the amount of Blu-ray discs that they have. Currently, they carry over 900 of the discs, and that number is continuing to grow. They have the new releases that you want to see in Blu-ray, so it is definitely worth a look. With the selection that Netflix carries, you won’t be stuck watching the same Keanu Reeves movies over and over again while you get drunk so you can trick yourself into thinking his acting is good. Actually, if you EVER go into a video store and the only movies they carry in Blu-ray are Keanu Reeves’ movies, walk away. There is something crazy going on in there.
Blockbuster gives Blu-ray fans two options. You can either rent Blu-ray discs online, or you can go to one of the 17,000 stores that carry the discs. Just like Netflix, Blockbuster is working on expanding their Blu-ray inventory, so you will have a good chance of finding what you want.
It is getting easier than ever to find Blu-ray discs to rent. We are getting much better at evolving and adapting to new technology. Eventually, the Blu-ray disc will take the place of the DVD altogether. Until that time comes, we’re going to have to be nice and share movie shelves with those standard definition DVDs.
