Many people still like owning a physical disk. For a movie lover, if you like this movie, you want to have it, collect it, and whenever you want to watch it, you can watch it with just one player. This is why I will always use DVDs.
Still, more important than the tangible part of owning a movie is actually watching the movie. I do stream online sometimes, but I absolutely hate the buffering which you never experience on the optical disc.
Plus, I never feel like I own it as I would feel with owning the Blu-ray or DVD. That can be a good thing at times because there are some movies you don’t want to own, but you just want to watch. Plus, I prefer watching my movies on TV over my laptop. As for Netflix, it is far more convenient to Buy DVDs, put it in a player, and watch, than paying bills to Netflix.

Meanwhile, LEGAL streaming services actually have quite a limited number of titles available. New releases are often delayed compared to physical media releases. Combine this with the above points, and you’re left with quite a number of people who will be purchasing these films on DVD.
This article may bring too much personal subjective awareness, people can continue to use DVDs for a variety of reasons, such as Internet access may be spotty/unavailable for streaming on-demand and the physical copy means one doesn’t have to download or store data. But it is undeniable that DVD can fill the gaps that technology brings to us. People often forget their intentions because of the progress of the times.
