Check that bit rate. Most "4K" are less than even the worst garbage transfers. There is more to a picture than pixel count. And yes if I am grabbing a 4K bluray from across the room there is no streaming service that looks or sounds even close. Matter of fact the same is true with a bluray or analog source. ....matter of fact a DVD has better bit rate in sadly many cases. Streaming rates are a joke and anyone will tell you from Sight and Sound to AVS to capsaholic to DVD beaver to bluray.com to high def digest that people that care about quality stay away from streaming. Call it what it is, just for the casual that don't utilize their HDTV's. You think you are going to get Arrow or Criterion quality on a 7.99 membership? The pitiful values have been published. 4K specs at best are around 15mbps. Do you realuze how bad that is?? A regular bluray is double that. Ok, so I glossed over this. Of course I know what a digital code is...often I am forced to deal in the lower quality code by removing it from package to get to the better quality bluray. You were talking about discs taking up space on a shelf and that is what I commented on. And for the record, the "cloud" takes up the companies/suppliers space, as you know it isn't magically up there.
