I've spent some good coin on my HT and if I feel Bluray has a noticeable advantage over streaming I'll stick with it, but with Cinemanow upping the game with DTS HD, which DTS says one won't Beable to tell the difference between the streaming and Bluray disc this will be killer to Bluray. I'm going to buy a player with the cineamnow app so I can test this and see if the audio streaming now matches that of the Bluray and if it does I'm going streaming.
Sorry, I assumed you were talking about 1080p streams. That being said, at normal viewing distances it's very close, but it also depends on what TV's you are using as a comparison. Since PDP technology is usually more faithful to film, a BD displayed on a set like the Panasonic VT or ZT 60 will most likely satisfy my personal tastes more then most Ultra LCD's displaying a 4k stream. According to the ISF, resolution is the least important specification when it comes to over all picture quality, so to get the best video experience, a lot of other factors have to come into play.
