DVD Sales Slow To A Run

DVD sales are slowing from their torrid pace of the last few years. “Hollywood shipped 403m DVDs to America’s stores in the first quarter of this year—one-fifth more than in the first quarter of 2004. That is a healthy growth-rate, but far slower than in the whole of 2004, when nearly 50% more DVDs were sent to shops than in 2003—and much lower than previous years’ dizzier increases of 100% or more.”
