If I wanted to watch the Walking Dead (just an example) on Google Movies I'd have to pay the following:
Season 1 - £10.99
Season 2 - £14.99
Season 3 - £20.49
Season 4 - £21.49
Total - £67.97
I'd have the ability to watch on all my devices anywhere, but lets be honest I only really want to watch it on the TV. I doubt I truly own the movie and I have no confidence that it wont vanish in future if anything happens to Google....
Now compare that to the DVD box set of the same Season 1-4
That's a saving of £32.97!!!
I actually own the discs. I can lend them to a friend. I can sell them after I watch them (meaning I could have also saved more by buying used). I can back them up and stream them from a media server to any of my devices (if I'm creative and comply with copyright law).
It's 2015, it shouldn't be this hard (or expensive) to access old TV shows.
I've gone down the Plex route, over Xmas, for my collection and archived the physical disc whilst outing the case to save space. All our devices and TVs (we have Chromecast, Roku, FireTV, Wii and XBOX in and about the house) 😀
