I guess you are the dream consumer for the content providers. They have been trying to kill streaming services like Netflix, so that then they can milk you (and me) $3 for each episode you watch, or $7 per movie.
Because it is naive to think that if subscription services like Netflix (for movies) and MOG and Spotify (for music) go away, the studios will keep physical media around.
There is a reason why they claim that you do not own the content and it is because they want you to pay per view. They can't easily do this with physical media.
But if they choke Netflix and the likes, then there WILL come a day when you will find that the latest content becomes available ONLY on iTunes, or on HBO-Go, or whatever proprietary, overpriced and DRM-ladden sites the studios come up with.
Frankly, the only reasons why this day may not come is if they cannot completely choke off piracy, or the content providers break up (although the trend is clearly toward consolidation and don't expect Congress to stop it).
To reiterate, the studios do not want you to use Netflix (that's why they are not renewing agreements, going to iTunes, Amazon Prime and their own sites) -- they would rather stay in bed with the cable cos and pay per view resellers.
But, they do not like physical media either -- and the day will come, when they will force you to stream, just not on your terms the way it is with Netflix now, but on theirs.
I am the dream consumer of anyone who wants to provide high-quality content via online distribution.
The reason studios claim you don't own content is because you don't. It's copyrighted work, all you can ever do with a copy of a copyrighted work is license it.
The day when content that I want to watch is only on iTunes or Vudu is already here. That's where the early digital releases are. That's where the high quality online distribution rentals are found.
I don't like physical media—I like the quality it provides, but I don't like the media itself.
