What the DEG: Digital Entertainment Group refers to as “total U.S. home entertainment spending” is up almost 1% to just over $18 billion last year, reversing a 1.8% decline registered in 2014.

According to research published by the  (DEG), full-year revenue from the sale of DVDs and Blu-ray Discs declined nearly 11 percent in 2014, to $6.93 billion, while digital spending, which includes subscription streams as well as video-on-demand services, shot up more than 16 percent, to $7.53 billion.Meanwhile the fact that DVD subscribers  have been dwindling in US every day is best explained  by the fact that DVD sales declined  by 15% over the last year, standing at 2.7 million today.
