Despite all the hype around Netflix streaming, and Apple’s iTunes movie store, the fact of the matter is that the physical disc is still the king of home entertainment, Dan Frommer at SplatF reports.

As you can see in the chart below, digital streaming/sales only accounted for 19% of the home entertainment market in the third quarter. The rest of sales comes from DVD/Blu-ray discs.

As Frommer points out, this means there’s still plenty of room for growth for Netflix, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and others to attack the market.
