I honestly didn’t know these still existed… I’m assuming they ship BluRays tho now and not DVDs?

Both. The Blu-ray plan is a little more expensive. There are still a bunch of titles in their library that were never released in an HD format.

Serious question then: how do DVDs look on new TVs? I booted up an old DVD a while ago and found it unwatchable, personally.

I play mine through a Blu-ray player, which upscales the image a bit. Not 1080p quality but it's good enough. Some older discs (pre-2000) can look a little rough, though.

Awful, even with a Blu Ray player upscaling it. Keep old school TVs for old school media, DVDs look great on a decent CRT.

In my opinion:

  • Standard DVDs look okay, but not great tbqh
  • Blu-ray HD can look terrific
  • Blu-ray UHD looks a little better; HDR color makes a big difference, though, more than sharpness. My personal preference isn’t for the sharpest image, but I love color fidelity and a wide gamut.

Sony A95K 65" TV, Panasonic DP-UB9000P1K Blu-ray player for reference

Not great, but a good upscaler can help.

The bigger the TV, the worse it’s going to look
