Except for the ones I own on DVD, I just stream them from Rifftrax. I do worry about not having an offline copy just in case Rifftrax shuts down, but it's just easier this way. Hopefully, there are fans downloading them just so if the worst happens and they shut down, they'll all still be out there.
Poorly The audio-only versions I usually back up to CD, and the synced ones to DVD. I still have the vast majority of my Rifftrax on the hard drive of my old laptop. The laptop works, I just haven't had a chance to transfer those files yet.
This is making me think it's time to watch another run of the Star Wars Holiday Special.
Well anyway, hi there, folks. You know, I'd been having trouble with velvet leaf, uh, cutworm and, uh, foxtail and, well, that's when the representative from Monsanto came out to my farm. He recommended a pre-emergent, inferral mixture of Lorsban with Atrazine in a tank mix and I told him to get off my land. - Farmer Joel
I download them as I need them, and usually store them on flash-drives but I don't have a super huge collection of trax so that wouldn't be a manageable option for when I decide to crack down on their library. For my MP3 tracks, I usually try to get some pre-sync discs from a friend (I still download the commentary to listen to the intro, but these days I just stream them from the site).
Otherwise, Rifftrax.com is pretty much the only storage I need, as slow as downloading is for me.
I download everything.. have a 2TB drive will all my music and the various downloadable movies, riffs, etc from a variety of sources. Cloud & stream everything is nice and all... until your internet goes out and you got *nothing* to do. =)

I buy the physical DVD when available, but the digital only titles I do buy I burn to DVD when the disc image is available. Otherwise, I simply download and keep them in iTunes where I stream to the TV via Plex via the Wii U browser. Sounds complicated, but it is actually very easy (though it all depends on how nice my wifi wants to play).

I enjoy that when you buy a physical copy from Rifftrax, they also add the digital file to your account. I got my copies of the two Santa Claus live shows last week, but I've been watching them online. I'll probably still pop in the disks to check out the trivia slides.

Well back to what I do best, sittin' here in my filthy pants. He looks like a cross between Jerry Mathers & James Dean. Beaver without a cause.
I prefer physical media, so I usually just buy the DVDs as they release (except for the last four Live DVDs) and have just recently begun to download the earliest uncollected shorts that don't seem likely to end up on DVD (Parade of Aquatic Champions, Unto the Least of These, and Courtesy Counts Alot being three examples). As for storing them, for now I just use the Rifftrax website's 'Library' page of purchased trax.
