2015 Home Media Sales Figures

Hi – sorry it’s been a while, but I have been busy with teaching duties, as well as working to get two edited collections published, following last year’s symposium.

I wanted to provide links to the 2015 figures from the British Video Association, concerning home media sales. The 2015 figures are interesting, as much is being made of the fact that both digital and physical revenues are now earning over £1 billion annually. This could be the start of a shift towards digital, but many UK consumers are still seeking out physical copies of media for ownership at home. The global position of physical media sales also seems to support this viewpoint – meaning physical media is not going away anytime soon. For example, over $6 billion is still spent on discs in the USA.

More updates on the book volumes, and other news, as and when it comes!
