The 20,000 Foot View:  Home entertainment primarily consisting of DVD, Blu-ray and Electronic sell-through (EST) was a necessary content delivery experience. It enabled the movie business to participate in the first stages of the shift to digital at the turn of this millennium. With the near mainstream adoption of streaming video on demand services built around a monthly paid subscription model, this consumer proposition is now being eclipsed by Subscription Video On Demand (SVOD) alternatives and we’re seeing younger demographics abandon the technologies underpinning home entertainment.
