Default How much does streaming effect DVD sales

Considering this site has some ties with MVM and Anime Limited I'm just wondering

Just how much does streaming sites like Crunchyroll effect DVD/Bluray sales for the UK?

Has there been any noticeable difference in DVD/BR sales, be it increase or decrease, especially over the last 2~3 years? And would this question be more towards the cost of living increasing and the drop in the value of the GBP rather than the increase in streaming?

Does fans importing titles from the US rather than waiting still effect the market as much in the UK? The main reason for importing over the last few years was the amount of Bluray titles NOT available in the UK, now we're seeing more Bluray release are sales looking better?


I know this keeps getting brought up every 6 months ~ 1 year but a lot has changed with the costs of physical media increasing while Crunchyroll recently getting 1 million paying subscribers world wide and paying more attention to the UK market, partly thanks to Anime Limited
