So, you're comparing the video quality of a free ($0) video source with one that costs ~$1000/year (cable TV) or costs ~$30 per movie (Blu-ray). That's a straw man if I ever saw one. At least rent a movie on iTunes or Microsoft's video service if you want to do a realistic comparison.57 said:So, all those people who always talk about how great streaming is, must accept these inferior products, at least for the instances I mentioned above. Since I have a significant investment in my home theatre, I prefer to have high quality audio, video, controls, no ads (PVR FF or skip), etc.
Who's condemning you? I'm just saying you're living in the past. If more people thought returning plastic discs to a video rental store was appealing, those businesses wouldn't be collapsing left and right.57 said:Don't condemn the latter for their decisions.
Hahahahah! I love it!57 said:It takes me no extra time to start a BD, I simply insert it ½ hour before I want to watch it.
I think that DVD/Blu-ray users are living in the past in the same way that VHS users would have been said to be "living in the past" 10 years ago. Or CD/cassette tape/LP users are living in the past. That doesn't mean nobody is using those technologies today, it's just that they're a mere shadow of their former market size.57 said:People are different with different needs and it doesn't mean that the people who aren't like you are living in the past.
Im not sure why its hard to understand what 57 is saying.Hahahahah! I love it!
And for people who *don't* want a huge lead-time to watch a movie are moving on...
That's one reason companies are unable to maintain a viable business model around plastic-disc distribution/rental.

I think we'll just let the market decide what is "the past".
iTunes + Apple TV. I think it has the best overall user experience, and is great if you're looking to replace your local Blockbuster Video (selection-wise).What is the best streaming service available now in Canada? By best, I mean video and audio quality and decent selection.
Many home theatre hobbyists (like most folks in this forum) would go out of their way and even pay a higher price to experience this difference in movie viewing experience.
