To answer Zuna Bob's snoody response as to why the 'cretins' prefer physical media: The obvious answer is the current broadband infrastructure doesn't allow for everyone to be streaming. Everything from broadband caps to just plain 'unreliable' ISPs. The other reason is physical media is generally a film fan's preference. Streaming often offers subpar video, audio, a lack of subtitles and no supplemental material. DVD offers that in addition to 5.1 surround. Then you bring Blu-rays into the equation and it makes streaming look like VHS in comparison. Blu-ray offers full 1080p HD, 24fps, lossless audio, TrueHD, 7.1 surround, etc. that streaming lacks. If you've invested money in a home theater setup then you can appreciate those things. Streaming does not allow you to 'experience' the films and take advantage of your setup. Instant gratification is nice, but it's sometimes like taking two steps back in terms of quality.
