Windows 7: Blu-ray Disc Association New Ultra HD Blu-ray Specification and Logo

I don't think that streaming an 100GB UHD movie is going to be practical for many people (that's >100Mb/s continuously for a 2 hour movie that size).

We get an absolute maximum of 6Mb/s at our house.

I'd much rather have a disk of a movie than a download
Rentals are still going well too for many without high speed internet.

Some of us still use discs because you guys with Netflux, Hoodoo and game streaming are using all the iNet bandwidth. Many of us in rural areas are barely off dialup speed, still watch broadcast TV and still spin a vinyl or two. Check my specs for the turntable.

I'd like to see the entire iNet limited to 2-3Mbs download speed until the quality of service is level across all ISPs. Perhaps that would get folks angry enough to push for better service in the rural areas. No one should get better service (speed) on the net until the same is available to all. That's my rant for today.

Vinyl = no piracy? No way, baby. Piracy was around in the vinyl days.

People don't stream 100GB, you stream a rip at high resolution. Even Apple sell movie rips not the full disc.

Me personally i watch a movie generally once then i delete it. I have a few exceptions of movies that i own on blu-ray like Melancholia, eyes wide shut or poltergeist but i can count those with my fingers.

We stream almost everything now, in the last few rooms we have decorated the bluray players haven't been put back as I see it as obsolete unused tech.

We have two Blu Ray players and one has never even been used. The one in the lounge gets used once in a blue moon when the girls want to watch one of their Monster High DVDs and that's about it. Everything else is streamed or USB.

Can you come over and decorate my house? Bring the blu ray players and any discs you don't want......
Actually I stream a lot Netflix, BBC, UK Ch4 and watch DVD and Blu Ray. I have a download speed of 100mbs but still actually like to have the CD and DVD / Blu ray in my possession.
Most of my PC's have a Blu Ray player in them and all have DVD burners.Three have Blu Ray burners which I use to make back ups of stuff and I also ripped a few movies to remove the protection as it was ruining the viewing of the movie, Star Wars Collection I'm looking at you.
I suspect it may be my generation. Thinking about it, I went to see the Star Wars original movies at the pictures, I bought them on VHS Widescreen, I bought the re-released versions on VHS. I went to see the new trilogy at the movies. I bought the whole lot on DVD, then I bought the whole lot on Blu Ray. Now I am done. I suspect when the new Star Wars film is out I shall go and see that and also buy the Blu Ray.

Sure, some people love to have the physical stuff which is completely fine, me, for example, i still love and buy music CD's. But the majority of the people are not going that way anymore...

Why do people buy a luxury car instead of a cheap compact car? They both will do freeway speeds & get you there.

Why do people buy huge homes in high rent areas when it's far more economical to live elsewhere?

Why buy an Apple Watch for hundreds when there's plenty of watches for $10?

For whatever reason that justifies buying the luxury car, huge home or Apple Watch I would, in a similar way, justify the need for one to buy UHD BR over Blu-ray & DVD discs or streaming media. UHD Blu-ray will out perform every format many times over in terms of picture quality & sound. To some this is very important, to others not at all. So what? To each their own!
