Post Poll #3: Home Video Watching
How movies on DVDs and/or Blu-Ray discs do you watch per year? These can be from any source (purchased, rented, borrowed, pirated, etc.).

Note: TV series/episodes don't count.

Where is the 400-500+ option?


This is what makes my yearly count so high, not threatrical viewings. I'm a DVD-addict.

I watched over 300 movies last year, but there were a lot of theatrical releases in that tally. I put 201-300 just to be safe.

I used to watch a lot when I was in school and I raided the school library...now I had to go and graduate lessening my amount of DVD's I see.

I've seen 53 so far this year so I went ahead and picked 201-300 to be safe.

I averaged about 400 movies per year for the last decade
The trend is away from cinema to home video

That's about where I'm at - roughly 400-500 movies per year, DVD+theatrical release total. Last year, it was about 50/50 - around 250 theatrical and 200 DVD. I expect the split will skew a little more toward DVDs this year, possibly 220/250 or thereabouts. The '80s series already has me well ahead of my pace from last year (thus far, I have watched over 100 movies on DVD since Jan. 1, although I expect the pace to slow later in the year when I start mixing in episodes of "The Wire").

201-300

I see over 400 movies per year, and while a good chunk of those are trips to the theater, the great majority are seen on video/DVD.

Netflix has changed my viewing habits. I used to watch two DVD's per month, now it's 2-3 per week. Add that to a significant investment in home theater gear, including Blu-Ray, and my home viewing has almost completely replaced my visits to the local multiplex.

Just under 200 for me.

I also see a not insignificant number of movies on cable, especially TCM.

Does cable HD On-Demand movie viewing count, or is that another poll entirely? :)

Regardless, even without that, we'd fall into the 51-100 category. Most of the time. There's been a year or two here and there where it was closer to 200-250.

I'm at the 301+, but those aren't unique views. I don't have cable or even the local television stations plugged in to my Television. The only entertainment that I get from it is from DVD's. I have over 100 DVD's and use Netflix to supplement it.

I also own a lot of episodic DVD sets, like The Wire, Pushing Daisies and such.

I'm also someone who can easily rewatch films over and over again. O Brother Where Art Thou is my chicken noodle soup, I've watched that DVD at least 50 times.

I see about five DVD's a week; so I’m somewhere in the 200 + range.
