DVDPlay: DVD Thriving

17 Jan, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Rental kiosk operator DVDPlay said the DVD industry will continue to thrive despite increased competition from cable VOD and the Internet. The company reported its 13 millionth movie rental and completion of an installed base of 1,400 kiosks as well as plans for 1,800 more in 2008, primarily at convenience stores and supermarkets. Citing third-party data that claimed 33 million domestic DVD player sales and $16 billion in consumer spending on DVD purchases in 2007, DVDPlay CEO Chuck Berger said DVD remained the dominant format in home entertainment.
