Everything in the cloud where you own nothing. Not to mention I cant count the number of times something I was watching some show on Netflix for it to get pulled off because -insert stupid reason here-

Still love having a good solid computer with lots of HDD space to store my recordings

netflix and other sources cannot replace physical copies yet, but they have so much momentum right now they definitely look like the future. with amazon you can already own streaming copies of lots of stuff. unfortunately they don't offer 1080p yet, which makes it a no go for me. the other advantage is that you can get it on any device easily, it's much easier to share accounts than physical copies etc

"own" as in quotes, Amazon you dont really "own" things, They can, and have, taken peoples ability to watch things away with little to no warning because of -insert agreement here- Same with pretty much all digital copy things.

Online streaming can go one of two ways, One it can replace "normal" TV, which would be awesome, Or two it will be segmented out as more and more competing services launch and each divvy up exclusives, ending up with streaming services replacing channels. The second is basically already happening with more and more things seemingly ending up yanked off netflix to become exclusives for XFinity or whatever.

On top of that you have the temporary end of Net Neutrality and the, in my experience, fairly accurate accusations that Verizon is kneecapping bandwidth for Netflix (I have 80mbps FiOS and struggle to get Netflix to give me anything NOT 240p sometimes, Which is REALLY agitating, I sincerely wish there was a manual "Force HD" button that would allow me to FORCE it to give me 1080p Super HD when available and none of this Ramping up nonsense)

Of course this is not accounting for the people who are getting forced into capped internet packages by Comcrap, which will just continue if they are allowed to merge with Time Warner, 250gb/month gives you a very low amount of stuff you can stream before you're over... Id probubly burn that cap in a day, Maybe 2...

In my experience nothing replaces a recording on an HDD or a physical disc yet because they simply work, I put the disc in it works and its perfect quality everytime, I click a file and it plays, and it plays on every device i own easily and simply.

Anyways this is getting off topic..
