Yes because some of us don't have infinite bandwidth. However maybe math needs to be done to see if I'm saving money by buying physical media or not.

And most movies these days are not worth downloading anyways. I just rent them redbox to watch once maybe twice. I get it instantly instead of waiting hours for a giant download to finish

The movie industry is sacrificing quality for lower cost and ease of editing.
I prefer the look of film as well, but that is complete nonsense. It also has nothing to do with the frame rate discussion that I was replying to.

We will need physical media for proper 4K viewing.

The United States' infrastructure just isn't there to support true 60 FPS 4K streaming.

Sadly streaming sites will never offer lossless audio and/or provide overkill bitrate to produce an amazing 4K picture.

Lossless audio is just too good on a high end speaker setup. I just can't watch content the same without it. I really wish games would start offering optional lossless audio packages. Last of Us was one of the few games with it and it sounds absolutely incredible.

Too bad the majority will dictate the market and we'll likely all be stuck with low bit rate 4k streams because that's "easier" for the masses (just look at the exponential rise of crappy streaming music sites). Also, it makes controlling the product easier for the studios as ripping a stream isn't as easy as ripping a disc is right now. IE, youtube isn't fun to rip stuff from without someone else making a program for it; whereas I can do it manually without someone else's program on other sites with ease.

EDIT:
On a side note I bet I'll be long dead before I'd get a chance to see even 10bit 3840x2160 @24fps lossless considering that comes out to roughly 249MB/s and I'm betting that hits 1TB/hr size. I just want to see the difference between lossless video once in my life. frown.gif

Agreed. The audio is what I miss the most with streaming and the main reason I rent blu ray's from Redbox instead.

blu-ray has the best color/contrast quality. that said, most contemporary movies are garbage and not worth purchasing whatsoever. i'd rather watch great classic films on regular dvd. but if they come out in blu-ray, the color quality etc might be worth it

I live in a rural village in Somerset, United Kingdom. I have lived here for over 4 years, and there are No projected plans to upgrade our broadband connection to Fibre, which is required for decent 1080p/4K streaming of Films and TV Shows without excessive buffering.

I have seen Netflix and other streamed content briefly when it did buffer enough, and I was not impressed at all, but I understand it's convenience for some, and it's probably I would say on par with Sky.

Over the past few years I've pretty much exclusively watched films on Bluray 1080p on my 40" Sammy 1080p HDTV (VA panel) w/ 500w surround sound system. I'm literally blown away everytime I see the immense detail Bluray quality films produce.

I desire quality as a trait, and Bluray is the best available. That said, even if I had Fibire broadband, I would continue to buy Bluray/UHD Bluray because they will not be beaten in terms of Mb/s video and high res audio quality by any streaming platform for a great many years.

I do plan on buying a 4K TV within the next year, most likely a 55" Sony X850C Triluminous UHD TV. From what I've seen of 4K content, it looks breathtaking. That is the kind of experience I want.
