The Lovefilm By Post DVD rental service will cease to operate on 31 October this year, its owner Amazon has said.
Amazon cited a "decreasing demand" for the discs and a growing number of customers who were streaming movies and TV series instead.
The move has irritated some fans, who argue that a wider range of films is available to rent on DVD and Blu-ray.
I never used the service myself, but I know it was very popular.
As I've said on Cable Forum many times, I think the future is streamed/on demand films and tv, but what if you can't afford these services?
I have a stack load of DVDs which cost a heck of a lot. Prior to that, a massive vhs collection. It is tempting to chuck out all the DVDs and save some space, but what if I can't afford the luxury, and it is a luxury, of a on demand service such as Netflix in the future?
It was hard enough selling my Star Trek VHS collection, which I did through gritted teeth, but I don't think I could bare parting with my Star Trek DVDs, even though every series of Trek and the upcoming new one, will be on Netflix. And on watch them on Netflix, despite the Trek DVDs being right above my tv.
Do you use Lovefilm, will you miss it?
