Poll Results: Are you still buying Blu-ray Discs?

Popular Blu-ray Discs 2015

We recently polled our readers to find out if they are still buying Blu-ray Discs, or are choosing to go completely digital. We also asked what is holding them back from buying digital media, and if they expect Blu-ray Discs disappear from stores 5 years from now (as have audio CDs for the most part). Finally, we ask whether or not 4k media will prompt them to purchase a 4k TV in the near future. What we found is our readers are not giving up Blu-ray any time soon.
