DVDs make up 81% of video spending, Multichannel News reports. NPD Group’s Entertainment Trends in America report found 41% of the amount consumers pay for movies and video is spent on DVD movie purchases, Multichannel says. Another 11% goes to buy TV series on DVD; 29% to DVD rentals, which doesn’t include Netflix; 18% on movie tickets; and 0.5% on paid downloads. “A growing number of Americans are going to YouTube and other sites for streaming video, but when it comes to paying for video content, they’re still focused on DVDs,” NPD analyst Russ Crupnick said.
