It's going to be the DVD version, with all the CGI crap stuck in and the re-shot scenes.

No thanks. We converted our VHS copies to .avi years ago.

Also ignoring the fact that Netflix is not available in every single country in the world, I love physical media.. Nothing like having a nice library to show off..

you can download uncompressed blueray too... just a direct 1:1 rip
Assuming you get 3 mb/s, you're looking at 50 minutes per movie.

Considering the actual average, being 500-100kbps. Have fun watching your instant blu-ray.

Most people have caps on their internet usage.
Not to mention, most of the time. Those 1:1 rips, aren't 1:1.
"Most people"
Fair enough, but globally, still millions of people have fast uncapped internet.

Ofc lots of rips arn't 1:1, but that wasn't my point, you can download 1:1 rips. If you choose to download a compressed version, still looks excellent. Movie compression never ceases to amaze me in terms of size/quality. It will not be "poor, artifacted streaming video and compressed audio"

As mentioned before, for those without bad internet, just download it overnight. Saves a trip to the rental store the next day.

Well, if a Bluray disc can hold 50Gb, a $50 1TB HDD can hold 20 1:1 Rips
Buying 20 blurays = $$$

That wasn't my point, my point was it is possible if someone wants to, most people just choose not to, because the compressed version is much more efficient, and they don't notice the difference.

Well like I mentioned before in this post, if your internet isn't up to scratch, use physical, its a choice. I get 60mb/s...

tl;dr

Not everyone has terribad internet
1:1 Rips are available
Compressed versions are excellent too
I'm not saying physical is bad, just listing why digital isn't bad.

They can't do both?

I especially love it when the network quality changes and I get to have a fun loading bar pop up in the middle of a scene.

Funny thing about torrents is that someone would have to rip it from the blu-rays originally.

Considering some of us spend more money on our home theaters then our rigs the quest for quality is often justified. And not all of us have great bandwidth or a multitude of streaming services available.

I don't have to backup my films for fear of losing them to a mechanical failure of some sort. I take care of my things and, if I were to live long enough, my discs would probably still be working long after things such as Netflix and Steam kick the bucket.

I may be behind the times, but I refuse to adopt a distribution method whose only pro seems to be a slight edge in convenience.
Calm down, grandpa...
