I don't know if you've noticed, but the world was in a bit of a recession the past few years. People have come, limping, back out of it I guess. Spending a little more cash. Also cost of production has gone down. It's much more affordable now to do even a 4k scan of a film. Considering that you can do that now and get it on three mediums: DVD, Blu-ray, Streaming. HD is where the money is now.
