21 Dec, 2015 By: Erik Gruenwedel

From North Korea’s alleged cyber attack on Sony Pictures, which prompted the studio for the first time to simultaneously bow a major theatrical release — The Interview — with Digital HD, to the Federal Communications Commission’s landmark vote on net neutrality, the launch of major branded subscription streaming video services, skinny online TV bundles and 4K Ultra HD, 2015 saw digital distribution firmly establish itself as both the present and future of home entertainment.
