I can't stand streaming. Neither the audio nor video quality is comparable to a properly mastered BD, which is very noticeable when you are watching on a big screen with a quality sound system. Unfortunately, many are watching on their mobile devices or laptops with headphones and couldn't care less. I, for one, am willing to pay a premium for BDs if necessary in the future to enjoy that extra quality. That said, I too have stopped buying movies soon after release since, like many others, I am very backlogged and it makes no sense to pay $25 for a movie when it will be $12 or less within a few months, which will still be sooner than I'm ready to watch it.
