Maximum PC – September 2018 (True PDF)
$1,400 MEDIA CENTER
Maximum PC – September 2018 (True PDF), The way we consume media has changed. According to the Digital Entertainment Group, which monitors disc sales in the US, physical media sales dropped by 14 percent in 2017, compounded by a 10 percent drop the year before. To put some cash on the table, last year we spent $4.7bn on DVDs, Blu-rays, and Ultra HD 4K Blu-rays, but $9.5bn on Netflix, HBO Go, and Amazon. It’s clear what the future for entertainment looks like. So, the sun is setting on owning a large pile of tapes, DVDs, and Blu-rays. Even if you haven’t made the switch yet, you’ll soon have to, unless you’ve got a particular reason to cling on to offline options (mostly down to a flaky Internet connection). What does that mean for our media center PCs? It means they need to change to adapt to this brave new world.
