With all this this streaming films over the internet, Lovefilm, Blinkbox, NOW TV and Sky Store, do you only stream? or do you like me prefer a good old DVD in your hand to insert into the player?

Yes, it's convenient, but you don'y get to see the bonus material, the deleted scenes, trailers and so on without the DVD.

Also you can buy the films you've streamed but it's not the same as having your own copy is it? it's there but not there? if that makes sense. :cool:

Prefer a Blu-Ray DVD. Physical copies give a proper sense of ownership. If you spend the extra money on something it encourages you to stick with it – books, CDs, whatever – and get the most out of it as possible, rather than renting it in digital and moving on as or before you finish it the first time round.

A bit of both. I like having DVDs I'd watch all the time but by having netflix I'm watching things I would never had considered in the past, one being antiviral which I really enjoyed but I would never had got it on DVD.

I agree.

I used to go to Blockbuster Store [which has closed down] and just walking around and looking through the selection was also a part of it, now such shops are closed/closing it just seems it's all online.

Reading up on the decline of DVD/Blu-Ray - rather disheartening to say the least lol

I prefer DVDs. It's a shame they're only doing digital downloads for some films I hear, starting with Wolf of Wall Street.
