    reel to reel, 8-track, audio  cassette, floppy disk, cd, dvd, bluray, solid state and streaming.  Technology moves forward.

    Blank recordable disks are still available but becoming obsolete.

    Purchased movies on disk are produced differently. They get stamped out with precision dies. But, disks are slowly obsoleting.

    Also, the brand label does not mean much and unless in-store you do not see the country of origin anyway.

    100 disks single layer write once £14.48 in-store, plus shipping

    100 disks single layer write once £17.43 in-store plus shipping

    DVD's are still the primary "permanent storage" media type. Flash drive have become more popular because of their portability but if you want something recorded so it cannot be changed then a regular DVD is still the best answer.

    There are still new stock in the market but it's getting harder to find them. Your best bet are chinese online sites.

    Yes, they still make blank DVDs. It doesn't make much sense to ask long-term availability questions based on shortages due to the coronavirus. Once the epidemic is over, manufacturing will likely resume.

    If they stopped making blank DVDs, it would have no impact on the movie industry at all. Movies were around before DVDs, or even before home video, and they don't need recordable media to sell their movies. Movie DVDs are made using pressed discs, not recorded with a laser and dye like DVD-Rs.
