Blu-ray sales to overtake DVD... next year

Packaged media on last legs?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Blu-ray Disc sales will finally surpass those of DVDs next year.

So says market watcher Futuresource. Its numbers are based on revenues. Next year, BD will account for 41 per cent of home entertainment spending on content, DVD for 26 per cent.

Online-sourced video content will account for 15 per cent, and video-on-demand delivered over cable TV networks 18 per cent of what consumers spend on content.

All four categories will contribute almost $25bn in revenues by 2014, though it pales in comparison to the $500bn Futuresource expects punters to spend on all forms of entertainment - cinema, music downloads, cable and satellite TV subscriptions, and videogames included - during that year. ®
