Please Stand By for a Brief Public Service Announcement...
For over twenty years now, from the dawn of DVD to the rise of 4K Ultra HD, The Digital Bits has been a powerful advocate for home media enthusiasts online. From our unique position within the industry, we’ve shared our love and knowledge of film, advised our readers honestly and well through two format wars, helped to make the adoption of the latest home theater technology easier, and served as a bridge between enthusiasts and the Hollywood professionals that produce our favorite content.
But in recent years, our costs have unfortunately increased, from contributors and equipment, to servers, bandwidth, even cybersecurity, all as advertising revenue has dropped across the Internet, leading to the disappearance of far too many popular websites. So if we’re going to continue fulfilling our mission here at The Bits, we need your help!
Here’s how YOU can Back The Bits...
1. Make a Monthly or One-Time Donation via PayPal
While our daily news, feature, and review content will always be available free of charge, it costs money to produce. If you enjoy our work here at The Bits, and especially if you’re a longtime reader, you already know the value it’s provided you over the years. So we ask that you consider making a donation via PayPal – whatever you feel it’s worth to you – either occasionally or on a regular basis.
2. Shop For Anything Through Our Amazon Links
This one is easy – just click on THIS LINK, the button below, or on any of our Amazon links here on The Bits before you start shopping there for literally anything. It doesn’t have to be just Blu-rays or DVDs. Then, when you check out, we’ll get a small commission fee. It really makes a difference!
3. Advertise on The Bits

On behalf of all of us here at The Bits, we wish to thank you – very sincerely – for supporting our efforts in any way that you’re able to.
We’d especially like to thank each and every Bits reader, both new ones and those of you who have been with us from the very beginning, for your loyalty and friendship over the years.
We love you guys and we’re committed to offering you the full benefit of our knowledge, experience, and connections within the industry. Our goal is to continue the fight in support of physical media on behalf of enthusiasts everywhere, and to help you each get the most value and enjoyment from Blu-ray Disc, DVD, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Digital, lossless audio, and whatever other new media formats the future may bring.
Thanks for twenty great years and for helping us to keep The Digital Bits legacy going strong!
