Will Australians keep buying movies in the online age?

Netflix might be coming to Australia but, even if you're ready to abandon shiny optical discs, Hollywood wants you to keep buying movies.

While streaming services like Netflix and Quickflix get all the attention these days, the somewhat old-fashioned idea of buying movies is a still key focus for Hollywood. For the major studios, there are greater margins to be found in selling us movies rather than renting them to us or offering them via subscription services. Hollywood wants us to keep building our movie libraries, rather than live off all-you-can-eat subscription services.
