What I was wondering is how long will it be until factories stop making dvds

Until every movie and TV show that ever has been made, have been scanned frame by frame to HD and then remastered.
So about 100 years, give or take a day or two, will the DVD still be alive.
I think the only thing that could definitively kill dvds is if the manufacturers of Blu-Ray discs made a decision to set their MSRP's for BDs exactly the same as dvds. But as long as dvds cost less than the BDs, people are still going to buy them because it saves them a few bucks. Better picture quality and more features are nice enticements to pay more for the Blu-Ray, but when push comes to shove, the majority of consumers are still going to make decisions with their wallets.
well you can buy tapes from ebay or something like that, but stores dont officially have them. same with VCRs
and some tapes are very expensive, collector item tapes.
and no company is making either one of them, no company is making tapes either, so when tapes start to damage, there will be no replacement, you know?
Most consumers are going to prefer "on demand" to local storage. That way, they can watch what they want, when they want, without having to go to the store to buy it or worry about where they're going to keep it.
