Music DVD Growth Better Than Film DVD

The music DVD business grew at a higher rate in 2005 than the DVD business overall, according to Nielsen Entertainment research presented at the second annual Music DVD Awards.

CDs still account for the vast majority of music purchases, Nielsen research shows, with 61.7 percent, followed by digital tracks at 35.2 percent.
