Once upon a time, if you wanted to watch a movie on a weekday night, you walked over to your local video rental store (probably a Blockbuster) and you paid more than five dollars to borrow a VHS tape for several days. When you were done, you replaced the tape in its plastic box and brought it back to where it came from, often paying a late fee because who can remember to return every rented movie without fail?

In 1997, with the release of DVDs, home movies became a little easier. DVDs took up less space than VHS tapes, had better sound and video quality, and they had an interactive component that VHS tapes never could. By 2003, DVD sales surpassed VHS sales, and by 2007, Blu-Ray joined the market. Movies in disc format (DVD and Blu-Ray) didn’t remain king forever though. In 2013, digital streaming surpassed both formats as the most popular. The evolution of video is fascinating, but it leaves us to wonder: with so many movie formats available to us today, which one is the best?

Are DVDs or Digitally Streamed Movies Better for Your Family?

The answer is, it depends on what you’re looking for. Movies on DVD and Blu-Ray are not without their benefits, in fact, both formats have remained on the market due to some key benefits. For example, it is undeniable that when it comes to video and audio quality, Blu-Ray reigns supreme. If you’re interested in superior quality for your decked out home theater, you might want to invest in a great Blu-Ray player and stick to discs.

But let’s face it, not many of us care too much if our everyday family movies are viewed with theater-quality resolution. Instead, we opt for the slew of benefits that come with streaming, including:

1. Cost

Instead of paying $20 or more for a single movie on DVD or Blu-Ray, with digital streaming services like Pure Flix, you can watch the same content (and lots more) for just $10.99 a month! For families that like to enjoy movie nights or educational shows for their children, the cost of a digital streaming service is far less than the cost of purchasing new DVDs- or replacing scratched ones!

2. Convenience
