There's a second season of Game of thrones? Well to be fair they didn't conclude the first novel so I suppose that makes sense. Anyway, when I downloaded the first season of Game of thrones I downloaded it on an episode to episode basis since they were released weekly, and it took me around 20 minutes to download an episode, and I pay monthly for my connection. So I usually jumped in the shower while I torrented the episodes. So there wasn't really any loss to speak of.

But I suppose you're right. If you pay for each downloaded gigabyte it might end up costing you more than the box set itself.


Yup, Season 2 is readily available to download now.
Like I mentioned it really depends on what country you're from vs broadband speed & costs of internet connection.
When I visited California nearly 10 years ago, I was surprised at how relaxed everyone was with their broadband, leaving their comp connected to the internet 24/7...whilst back in Australia, we were still on dial-up & strictly disconnected from the net if we weren't using it because of the costs.

You can easily purchase a terabyte external hard drive for under a hundred bucks and fit hundreds of HD quality movies on there. Movies that you can watch at any time, download for free, and that doesn't take any space on your shelf.


This is an interesting argument, why not an external hard drive? I mean, even if you pay for the movies there is no point in having the physical discs around. Which is kind of a book vs e-book argument too, except the book has more appealing features than the DVD. I assume you may not want to have your hard-drive everywhere, nor a computer, so portability can be an issue, but it's actually very minimal. The biggest value must be collectability, having a physical representation of what you own.

It is not a waste of money to buy dvd, they are good for back up but we need to give them an extra good care as once it gets damages, it would be useless. I usually buy dvd to watch movie or to burn and save files, but at this moment, I rely on streaming sites and some flash disk to save files.

I have all DVD-s of Rocky and I must say, I do not regret buying those. I love that series and it's really fun to watch it every once in a while. smile

Waste of money? I dont think so.
In a way, i see it like people who prefer vinyl over CDs. Having a solid DVD in my hands makes the movie more "real" to me.
