LOL. I wasn't even discussing the numbers, simply pointing out that Smackdown on HDD is dead and everyone has moved on to HDF. It's pretty clear Kosty, with his numerous polls, is trying to start a conversation over there, knowing full well most of us have left.

As for the numbers....their not that impressive.

I just picked up Part 1 (3D) because it was $17.99 at Best Buy yesterday. I think I already have it on BD...but I've still not seen a single one.

We are a year later, with a larger installed base of BD players. It is the 4th quarter shopping season.

As far as lead-in, it doesn't get much better than this.
A point that often gets ignored. More Players (1 year later, but SA and PS3) and sales should be much higher. What are those new owners doing, streaming?

...right?
Yet it still doesn't change the numbers we get week to week.

Warner chose Friday. That's how it is.

That's about what I guessed, based on the expected attrition of Cars 2, which was about 79%.

Cars 2, POTC 4, and Captain America have all had attrition levels to within a few percent of each other (averaging 78%), and have been higher than the norm (about 71%). That's probably because their are more preorders or day 1 purchases, as well as the first week discounts being higher than the norm.

Based on HP units and assuming they are somewhat proportional to Cars 2 units (although high of course), Then HMM should report in around $80 million this week for BLu-ray.

The Numbers posted their BD estimates showing 2.71 million HP7pt2 units.

HP7pt1 also saw a 604% bump this week to 323k units.

$102 million top ten for The-Numbers. Given that they've been running over 50% higher than HMM the last two weeks, I'm now more inclined to think HMM will report closer to $70 million rather than $80 million. In any case it looks like we probably won't know until next week, due to the holiday.

We will probably get two weeks worth of data on about Tuesday.


Do you really think it could be as low as $70 million?

I think the majority of new players being purchased are for streaming and or second or third players for already Bluray owners. I know I'm looking to get a couple for my kids rooms. But they will used them for streaming or playing DVDs most of the time.

I wonder how many people are streaming these days. What with Netflix losing subs it makes me think that streaming isn't taking off that fast any more? What about the other providers, are they growing fast?

I've never had streaming, and was curious, if you have a streaming player, do you need to connect an ethernet cable to it? Or does it have a wireless setup built in? A cable would be a major hassle.

Wireless is pretty prevalent now.

I have my 360 wired, but that is because it is sitting next to the router anyway.

So that means plug and play and nothing else to buy? (assuming one already has a wireless signal being transmitted in the house)

For example this player:

I am actually not seeing where that player is wireless, but assuming it is.. then yes. Pretty simple setup.

Ya very easy setup if you are already broadcasting wifi in the home. There are other solutions. You can turn your power outlets into a Ethernet network. It works very well. Plug a device into a power outlet near the streaming device and plug your Ethernet cable into it. Plug the other sister device into an outlet near your router and plug it into your router. Wala! House is wired for Internet to any room that has a power outlet and one of these devices.

It's not just Netflix though. YouTube is its own network filled with its own stars. My kids watch and subscribe to more YouTube channels than anything else. Probably more than Netflix and DVDs combined.

The other thing is that Netflix sub loss is almost entirely on the DVD-by-mail side of the house.
