and one of the most prominent digital copy services just ceased. ------------------------ I think that part of the reason streaming is good enough for many people-----is because many people have cheap TVs, which can't display a correct black level or all of the color depth and subtle resolution of a good source. So yeah, a disc vs streaming comparison on a cheap TV is not going to be as large of a difference. Because the TV itself, is a limiting factor. And the quality level of streaming varies wildly. Even among modern, higher profile releases. Arrival streamed at 1080p (verified) on Amazon, looks awful. Its comparable to a 2Gb pirate rip.
