Spending on digital video entertainment rose by 40.2% in the UK in 2013, helping boost consumer expenditure on video entertainment from £2.245bn to £2.256bn, according to the British Video Association.
The figures also reveal a 10% rise in Blu-ray Disc purchases.
This year-on-year increase in the value of the video market of 0.5% effectively maintains the overall market value as consumers shift their viewing habits.
Physical formats remain dominant, with more than 162.2m units sold this year, despite the reduced number of video retailers on the high street.
Discs represented 73% of the total video retail and rental sectors by value last year.
Skyfall, the latest James Bond film, was the year’s biggest-selling video, having shifted 2.96m units since its release in February.
The first instalment of the Hobbit franchise, An Unexpected Journey, was the second biggest seller, having sold 2.06 units »
