Disney stopped making DVD’s, but not stopping DVD distribution of their titles

Disney DVD moving to Sony

It’s being reported that Disney is in the process of transitioning its physical home entertainment business to a licensing model. The studio will start with a licensing agreement with Sony, which will see Sony handle marketing, selling, and distributing physical media (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, etc.) of any new Disney releases and older catalog titles to consumers via retailers and distributors in the U.S. and Canada1. That sounds scary for those of us still dedicated to physical media, like another death nail in the coffin of optical discs. But in reality, it’s simply a financial decision to outsource the licensing rights for production of the Disney titles to a 3rd party. Ultimately, everyone will still be able to buy the Disney movie titles they want, it will just be made and distributed by another company. Ultimately, we’ll all still be able to purchase the Blu-ray version of Toy Story, or Monsters, Inc., and as a consumer, we won’t notice any difference.

But, there’s still a caveat that as production of content becomes consolidated, the determination as to what content is produced will now be a numbers game and not because the content creator wants to continue the brand. Especially when one company is paying a licensing fee for the rights to produce that content. That means if you have a favorite movie or movies that are not mainstream enough, and you don’t already own a DVD or Blu-ray copy, there may come a time where that title will be very difficult or expensive to obtain and view, if at all. So, it’s important to always get a copy of those favorite movies to keep on hand, so you’ll always have it available when you want it.

Don’t leave it to the discretion of big corporations, get your own copies of the movies you want. Otherwise, it may no longer be an option.

The iXflash extends the storage capacity of your iPhone/iPad by allowing the user to take photos and videos that go directly to the iXflash

No Space No Worries - iXflash

It finally happened to me. I was at an event taking lots of photos and videos and low and behold, I got the dreaded “iPhone Storage Full” notification. Generally when something like that happens, you have 2 options, of which neither is preferable: stop taking pictures or frantically find items you can delete to give you more storage space. However, in my case, I was fortunate that I had my iXflash with me. I simply plugged it in, opened the iXflash App, selected the photo feature, and kept on taking pictures and videos with no worries because they all went directly to the iXflash drive and didn’t use any memory from my full storage iPhone. I didn’t have to miss any moments that I wanted to capture and I didn’t have to sacrifice any stored content on my iPhone to get it.

This is just one of the great advantages the iXflash offers. Take into account the iPhone photo/video backup and restore options; ability to transfer content between an iPhone/iPad and any type of computer; movie and music playback, read only, and much more. Don’t miss out, get an iXflash today!

It can back up all your photos and videos, record video without using any of your iOS device’s memory, transfer files between your iOS device and computer, and watch, listen, or work on files stored on the iXflash through your iOS device, including some files that are not natively supported by Apple. Additionally, Vinpower was the first to obtain the Apple MFi certification for a flash drive with a USB Type A and C connections. Plus the iXflash Cube, is a portable storage device that connects to your iOS devices charging cube and cable to allow the user to charger their iOS device and automatically backup all photos, videos, and contacts at the same time. That way, you always have a backup that you can easily transfer to a computer with a USB connection for safe keeping or easy viewing.

Plus, our line of duplicators, especially the hard drive, USB, and SD duplicators also garnered interest from a number of visitors.

Keeping a physical copy of your favorite traditional holiday movies on optical discs is the only certain way it will be available to watch.

optical discs better than streaming

As I’ve shared last year and the year before, the lack of access to traditional holiday movies due to streamers exclusively acquiring holiday movie titles to offer on their sites only makes even the grinchiest of scrooges disgusted. The holiday season is often a time where family members will put down their smartphones and actually spend time with each other watching kitschy holiday themed movies on a single screen. That’s become harder and harder to do as there are more and more streaming services that are snatching up these valuable properties and hording them for their own exclusive streaming rights. The movies you always enjoyed growing up and were always available to watch for free on broadcast TV are no longer so convenient to watch.

That’s why I feel like a broken record when I say, make sure you keep a copy of any movie or music you love, or even just like a lot, and willing to watch over and over again, on an optical disc. Keeping these titles on Blu-ray, DVD, or CD ensures that you will always have them available in hi-res digital quality anytime you want to watch them. Don’t waste your money signing up for a streaming service that you eventually forget to cancel to watch a single program once a year. Save your money and frustration searching which streamer is playing that program this year, but keeping all your favorites on optical discs that will be available year after year, any and every day you want to watch them.

Reminder, Vinpower will be exhibiting at CES in Las Vegas, NV January 9th-12th, 2024 in Central Hall, Booth # 16646. If you’re attending, we hope you visit with us.
