You can stream/download "quality" if you had the right internet speeds. I have posted a screenshot (you probably didn't see it) of me streaming 4K video without any problems from YouTube along with my network usage meter thing in Task Manager for Windows 8 at 90 Mbps. I know a lot of people don't have those sorts of internet speeds but soon a lot of people will have those speeds.
By the way, even though I don't have a 4K monitor. The 4K video I was streaming had better image quality than any blu-ray I have seen. I do agree with you, at the moment for some people optical drives are a must. But external optical drives do exist.
