    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.

    The blu-ray will always look better (for now) but I stream TV shows and some movies from Amazon or Netflix in 1080p or higher and they usually look really good even on big screens like mine (65''). There are TV shows that I want to try out and don't want to necessarily pay extra for blu-ray or having to rent a disc. I mainly stick to Blu-ray for movies.
