It's Paramount. I think historically, going back to the days of VHS and especially laserdisc, nobody used to repackage, re-issue catalog titles as many times as they did!

Anchor Bay and the 250 releases of The Evil Dead movies comes to mind.

Back in the darker recesses of my brain alongside other conspiracy theories, I am of the opinion that some of the studios are intentionally half-assing their physical media (multiple releases, overbearing DRM, crap transfers) in order to sabotage sales and bolster their argument against "job-killing piracy". A shift away from physical media to entertainment streaming/leasing (Ultraviolet, Netflix, Paramount.com, Universal.com, Anchorbay.com, etc.) is the ultimate win/win for the studios. Total control, total profit. Meanwhile, they can continue to go to trade shows, showing off a handful of titles that prove their support of physical media, but we all ultimately know the future.

Hey, I've got a solid 35Mbps Internet connection. I could start streaming typical Blu-ray releases tomorrow if it was available.

Were this their aim, wouldn't it be easier and also a hell of a lot more effective to just stop releasing Blu-ray discs?

The only people who notice less-than-great discs are the super-nerds like us- the people who notice problems with downloadable/streaming content as well. If the downloadable/streaming options offered superior picture to even poorly-produced Blu-rays, you might have something in this theory, but they don't.

To what end?

They can't just stop, they have to ween us off it slowly to avoid mass consumer backlash and media coverage. I said it was just a opinion akin to a conspiracy theory, don't read into it too deeply.
