Just curious what most people do for Blu-ray Movies??

Rent?
Buy?
Buy used?
Rent then Rip?
Borrow then Rip?
Stream if even possible?

Wasn't sure how to start a poll??
Just starting to look into my Blu-ray options.....

Ripping is a lot of work, maybe if one wants to play it on other platforms it's worth the bother.

My library has a huge selection, and all the new releases. You can check out 7 at a time, for a week at a time. Cut down my buying considerably.
