Like I said earlier I had Netflix but the reason I do not currently have it is I lost my job so that got cut and once my job is stable and not through an agency I will most likely get it back. One thing I hate with streaming services is the line up changes and there is only so much content and usually you do not find alot of classics or rare titles. And another example is Ultraviolet going under there are and will be services that come and go and so will your library when they do. I look at Netflix like a different version of HBO so I can justify the cost of Netflix because I am not spending money on something I do not own like digital media, it is more like a subscription service. Streaming is ok for rentals as well so that is something I am looking into to add to what I have in my library of movies on disc.
Netflix: May be resubscribing this summer
Vudu & Movies Anywhere: Mainly to register codes to use to back up movies I purchase on disc. Also may rent movies using there service
Planning on purchasing an 4K Apple TV this year for renting movies
Considering a NAS but I will have to be able to play back lossless surround, Dolby Atmos and DTS-X! But the cost of investing into a NAS and the time and effort of ripping movies from disc to the NAS makes me wonder if it is worth it. Granted once everything is on the NAS it is just a matter of adding movies as I buy them. But currently I still do not see value in spending money on something I can not hold in my hand, something that can be taken away if there are any legal issues / licensing problems, provider going out of business and you loose everything and you actually do not own anything! Granted streaming has improved so much and there is no doubt it kills DVD quality and is close to blu-ray. But the best experience and quality is still physical media especially 4K UHD Blu-ray. Shure digital content doesn't take up space but if they change the version they are offering your screwed! Some services can cancel your account then what? For me digital is not worth spending money on and the library is no where near what is on physical media with the number of titles in 4K and with lossless audio or immersive audio. This may change in the future but for now no buying digital content.
