Re: When does it stop?
@michelle  same is on my end I try to avoid anything 3D as my brain could not process it and I feel sick after... but now even Steam started selling VR games, plus 3D movies get attention again... some Imax shows get transfered to 4K some to new 3D, some will get 4K3D...

Re: When does it stop?
I'm of the same opinion. I personally can't tolerate the viewing 3D content so I don't imagine I'll even try VR soon.

Re: Wow
We've been doing the same. Oddly, the discs have become a backup in case of Internet outage.

Re: When does it stop?
TVs are already being disposed of cyclically now. I know that it is a pretty costly process because you have to pay $50 to recycle a TV in my area.

Re: Wow
I still get Blurays but I always get the one with the digital copy and the disc ends up in a cabinet collecting dust because I just stream the movie.

Re: When does it stop?
@DonBrowne. I agree. I don't see the need to purchase VR and it will not provide me with an enhanced viewing experience. I like HD but have not been sold yet on why I need to use VR.

Re: Wow
@mhhf1ve, Do people still watch Blu-Ray? It seems like the technology never took off. I have never watched a movie on Blu-Ray. Anthing that requires me to spend more money to view it is a deal breaker.

Re: When does it stop?
@afwriter. I am not interested in VR. I don't watch TV but do watch a lot of movies. I don't really need a TV but it is nice to have. I think there is room in the industry for TV viewers as well as VR customers. I think TVs will be around for at least another 5 years. Also, if TV's are eliminated, how will they be disposed of? in a landfill? How will this impact the environment? atmosphere, carbon emission, etc.?

Re: Wow
@mhhf1ve. Good questions. I haven't seen any either. Is 4k or 8k worth the cost? Will service be that much better than I need to speed more money to view it? I am not sold on 4k or 8k yet.

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
