The day physical Media stops and Streaming is the only new available product is the same day I begin my long journey into permanent back catalogue disc purchases

Just stop offering them for sale, dead easy.
At least those “idiots” are perpetuating physical media, which tangentially benefits Blu-ray and 4K UHD in the long run.

DVDs are in it for the long haul. I imagine they will last as long as companies continue to make devices that support them.

Like they care. They just want to watch the movie or tv show, not care about collecting or quality. That doesn't make them idiots, just shows their priorities lie elsewhere.

That brings up another problem that people really don't care about their money. As long as they've got instant gratification they'll continue throwing hundreds and thousands of dollars at something they will never physically own. One day they'll wake up and realize how stupid they are.

Who knows, it may even outlast Blu-ray as strange as that may be.

To some it's the value of not having to store physical things, also the ease of not having to go and select media to watch, now as collectors on here it's not a very easy concept to understand, as we all love physical media and one of the joys is to own something , as for the point of losing things I bought a game for the Xbox One ages ago, hell I have sold and re-bought a console and the media is still there tied to my account.

Also based on ebay prices a lot of non-special old titles are essentially only worth postage.

Sure the format will remain, but not a widely available commercial format -- haven't we spent the last two years complaining about the ever shrinking 'movie' section in our brick-n-mortar box stores?

All things come to an end and while some hobbyists might continue, the public has moved on.
A few people found the ONE title of each of those formats, so let's not go overboard man. And most of this last DT dump was stuff from Canada.

jonmoz In the main physical media will give the better experience, sound especially. In the normal course of events you buy the disc, you can then watch it or indeed lend it as you wish. Try to do that with streaming, where content today is not guaranteed next week

UHD will replace Blu-ray as the preferred format before DVD bows out.

Totally with you on this as a collector of VHS, Laser Disc, DVD, and now Blu-Ray, my point is the masses do not see it that way.

Good luck with that, UHD is even more niche than Blu-ray.

UHD has more storage capacity and will be on next gen consoles, plus the players play every other format outside of VCD.

So?, UHD is already on Microsoft's Xbox One S and the X consoles, and it's hardly pushed the format, you also see that on both the Sony and Microsoft consoles uptake of the 4K versions is hardly what you could call stellar, outside of the core hobby gamer people are just not that bothered about 4K, hell most of the masses are happy with DVD or steaming.
