Movies or tv programes in a phyisical device

Vintage. Keeping films or tv programmes in a physical device will mean the same as keeping vynils as collector’s objects. It’d be a hobby, but not a need. The spreading of the Internet or streaming devices, on cloud or under demand, along with the less room of houses would do the rest. Believe it or not, Netflix, the great example of this way of consumption, began selling home delivery DVDs.

Nevertheless, there’re defenders of high privacity and companies which still use this channel to communicate with their clients and to make specific transactions.

Let’s see, there’s a little difference between printing a photo from your reflex camera in big scale and making a nostalgic composition of your memories from your beginnings with Instagram -when Instagram was only for iOS users-. Let’s put it between modern and vintage. Be careful, because printing and creating a Hoffmann album is old-fashioned, but which is pretty clear is that we’re still not digital natives and we depend on physical objects.
