@nonoise is this where you say there are so many boxes involved in cable and that is why it worse quality again?
And you are still wrong, the absolute best home cinema quality is achieved with streaming, Kaleidescape, way higher bandwidth than a 4K UHD Blu-ray.
@fredrik222 can't be more correct. Kaleidescape is the only way to go when watching movies. 10x streaming's bandwidth. You haven't heard your sound system until you have tried one as your source. Picture is pristine. Both better than Blu Ray. Find your local dealer - they have a demo that they can drop off at your home for you to try out for a couple of days.
I am one of the luddites who still rents DVDs and Bluerays. One thing few people talk about is depth of catalog. Netflix DVD rental offers something like 100,000 titles, including many indie and foreign films, as well as music performance videos. The Netflix streaming catalog is probably less than half the size of the disc rental catalog. Sure DVD res and audio stink compared to BD and even streaming, but that doesn't matter if DVD is the only format a given film is offered in. I had about 1000 films on two Netflix rental ques when they announced they were pulling the plug. Dozens of great films and musical performances that aren't available on streaming will be lost to me forever, unless I want to purchase them, assuming they are even available in disc form. It's really a shame. If Netflix would duplicate their disc catalog for streaming, I would pay up for it. Perhaps a multi-tiered subscription plan, like some other streaming services offer, could offer more indie and foreign releases. Are you listening, Netflix?
