For the first time, consumers are watching more movies through streaming applications like Netflix, HULU and Vudu than they are through DVDs and Blu-Ray. That’s great news for just about everybody - there’s no waiting for delivery, you can take it with you on vacation and you can watch it on your smartphone. But, like anything when you’re coming in at the early stages of a technology, there’s multiple hardware platforms (Boxee, PS3, etc.) supporting different applications (Vudo, YouTube, etc.). You can’t buy one platform and get everything today. That’s changing but it’s taking time. Until that issue if fixed, be prepared for some confusion. Hit the link on USA Today for more.
