Streaming is just an add on revenue source for the content providers for older content that has no market value from the pay TV sector or from the sale of physical disc or EST. That is why it is so irritating to hear all the streaming hoopla vs disc, they really serve two different markets. That is why you will not see anything recent like Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, The Dark Night Rises, Brave, etc., etc. on a SVOD service.
Want apples to apples, compare physical disc sales to that of EST. At this time EST hardly shows up on the radar.
I have Amazon Prime, Netflix and Vudu for streaming, Blockbuster By Mail for BD rentals, Sirius (2 radios), OTA and PBS via AMC-21 satellite.IMO, the mods should delete all post in this thread that makes reference to Netflix and/or streaming.
