I still have my VHS Firms...

Nope, I like streaming but I’m keeping my dvds. I also have many, many downloaded workouts on thumb drives.

I bought some vintage Jane Fonda on VHS just last fall. If my TV/VCR combo stops working, I honestly don't know what I'm going to do about some of my VHS. Not just workouts but some old movies, too.

I live in Silicon Valley so internet connection is pretty good but I just hate having to "buy" (and not truly own) streaming stuff, especially if I already have it on DVD. And I also love the premixes on DVDs (I know KCM does or tries to include these in her streaming service but still I already have them!) I use YouTube selectively (Jessica Smith, some yoga, a few other oldies that have been uploaded which I don't have on DVD) and also podcasts (e.g. Eoin Finn).

Currently, I am streaming a few things for rehab but I am keeping my DVDs. I have enough DVDs to last a lifetime and this is the most inexpensive and independent way to workout, in the long run.

I agree. I stream only when I'm traveling for extended periods of time. I like owning my workouts, some of which are on DVD, some of which are mp4 videos.

I am finding it so much easier to stream than use dvds that I have not used a dvd since 2019.
I do download my favorite routines so I can do them without buffering issues.

I am doing a mixture of streaming and DVDs. Just looking at this week, I have done DVDs a lot. I probably use my Cathe DVDs the most. I love all the premixes and you don't get those with downloads. I also use Tracie Long DVDs a fair amount.

It's getting to be time for me to get rid of my dvds. I never use them. It's just so easy to stream. I'd probably keep my Essentrics and Ellen dvds. That's probably it.

Streaming is so convenient and easy.

Still using DVDs but I've substantially streamlined and still am.

As soon as my library is accepting donations I'm bringing a pile that I can't seem to give away for SASE, probably every VF'er has had them at some point.

You can't trade or sell streaming (as far as I know). You can't lend streaming to a curious VFer. You can't put streaming up in the Wish List, Request the Wealth or Share the Wealth threads.
