With all of the premium networks, Amazon Prime, Netflix... is there really any need for a Blue Ray / DVD player any more? Having a coffee out back, it's 68 degrees, I brought it up. Told Kathie we never rent from Redbox any more. She commented that she didn't know we still had a player.
Sorry couldn't resist. For movies and tv shows yes, pretty much unless there's an older show not available streaming that you might find in dvd.
I would suggest picking up some hi-rez music blue rays and cranking it up on the new Marantz just for the fun of it.
Not dead, but certainly not in it's prime. I don't subscribe to premium networks, not enough there to make it worth the price. I do have somewhere around 1,500 discs in my video library. I still watch them periodically, especially some imports that aren't available on streaming. The picture is usually better on Blu-Ray than the equivalent HD streaming.
No. But the consumer must be vigilant against the Entities against owning physical media.
We don't have any premium networks, Amazon Prime, Netflix... all we have is cable and Disney+. And with that our players are very rarely used, probably 6-12 months ago since. And that would just be playing something we have.
