Will dvd movies fade out?

I have started a collection of DVD movies for my grandchildren, but am worried that over time they will fade and be no good.

Yes, but not as fast as people think. Blue ray, a higher capacity disk, will grow as people buy more high definition televisions, but many are also happy with DVD quality. DVD still has a little life, and not everything is on Blue ray. Many children's classics are on DVD now, and would be great stepping stones to movies.

It is doubtful that dvd's will fade out, the next step for digital media will be downloading and streaming movies. However, for dvd's you can usually upload movies to a digital format so no matter what your dvd's will still be useful. Look at vhs, plenty of people still watch them and own them.

In my opinion, I would have to say that even though it is the way to watch movies now and the most popular form of entertainment it would not surprise me if something better came along one day to replace it.

Most estimates suggest that the lifespan of a DVD is at least 30 years. Videos on DVD's do not fade, the disc simply becomes unreadable.
