I apologize if this is a rampant noob question.
I'm wondering if it is possible to download movies and/or TV shows in full, unblemished Bluray quality.
I see a lot of download sites where you can download shows and movies in "1080p quality", but the download file is only 3gb-5gb large! This is concerning to me, because I thought real Bluray movies were over 20gb large. So, I'm assuming these files must be highly compressed and losing some quality somewhere.
Wasn't file size a reason why the Bluray disc was created in the first place, because DVD discs couldn't hold enough data?
In any case, I'm wondering if it's possible to download movies in full Bluray Quality, and then store them digitally and play it back on my TV and/or computer. I'm looking to play it back from the harddrive, or a flashdrive.... not burn it to a Bluray disc. I'm looking for full quality, not compressed quality.
If so, how large should the data file be per movie?
If so, what would the best type of file be to download?
Where can we download them?
