When do you think Netflix will start renting out 4K discs?

Well, that would suck. But then again I'm assuming they never rented out 3D discs, either?

If Netflix had their way they wouldn’t be shipping out any discs at all.

They didn't even release Beasts of No Nation on DVD, so I'm guessing they're not releasing jack **** on UHD.

I really hope that Scorsese's The Irishman gets a release somewhere in the world, at least on regular blu ray if not UHD.

He means their disc rental service, which is still operational somehow.

I agree with you though, Netflix (and Amazon and soon Disney) doing movies on their streaming service and never putting them on disc is a real concern.

This. It blows my mind that people still use Netflix for discs. Is that even an option anymore for new subscribers?

I don't see the worry. If the format creates stuff and doesn't come out on disc.. that's fine cuz that's the format it was created for. It would give a bigger level of exclusivity to make the service attractive to some degree. Good business for that format. And in some cases, I'm fine with some stuff not coming out in theaters. Though from a business angle some films do get a better prestige if they do a cinema run of sorts. And also add a greater value to the format too. It's an interesting model.



Netflix still does discs to rent? Wow. How is that still going?

Of course it works for them. The concern is the preservation of the film and having it in higher quality with uncompressed audio and much higher bitrate, not to mention being able to watch it anytime without re-subscribing at the higher UHD rate.

We still use it. I put only upcoming releases in my list so we get to see 4 new release films every month for $10. Much cheaper than blind buying or renting from a streaming service.

You make it sound like Netflix doing Disc rentals should have ended years ago.

It should have with redbox taking over the niche market of disc rentals. Everyone now just sits back and relaxes at home and streams it. A family of four can stream a 4K title for like $6.99 sometimes. That is not bad at all.

No offense to them, but I'll take Netflix over Red Box any day.

What blows my mind is that some people still don't realize that the streaming service is extremely limited compared to DVD.Netflix.com (the disc service). The streaming service chooses select titles for you, changes them every few weeks, and in general contains about 20% of the total titles (for films at least) as there are available with the disc service.

Obviously, if you have both you get the best of both worlds (but $$). But if you only have the streaming service, you're looking elsewhere for movies. Alot.

As for 4k discs, I once had hope, but until they start selling commercially, it's unlikely they start renting them.

Yeah Netflix streaming selection has kinda nosedived, or maybe my interests are narrowing. Netflix in other countries has tons of good stuff that we don’t get. But it’s still great for TV shows.

Netflix closed this service quite some time ago in the UK.

Default My uncle in lawsí parents still use the disc option

So it is still offered for sure. They arenít collectors though and they prefer to get discs simply because they can choose what they want and streaming is limited to what Netflix chooses, like a poster said above.

I remember first using Netflix for when they started offering blu Rays and how ecstatic I was to be able to get them. Problem is the wait was sooooo long for new releases but this was before redbox so I didnít have much choice to rent physical media elsewhere.

I donít see UHD being offered through Netflix and Redbox has been slower than a snail expanding their UHD offerings....

I use both the streaming and disc services. There are so many titles that aren't included with Netflix streaming or my Prime account that I don't understand why somebody *wouldn't* subscribe to the disc service. I mean, Redbox is convenient, but the selection is terrible, especially if you want to watch any catalog films. I'd love to see Netflix add 4K discs to their offerings.

There's a reason why we stopped the disk service.

Four disks came in the mail either scratched bad enough that made it unwatchable or they were cracked.

There is no reason to rent disks unless you live in an area where broadband sucks monkey's *****.

We're fortunate. We have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Direct TV Now, and a Roku with plenty of options for streaming. It's 99% reliable.

When it's not, I've got a diverse shelf.

I think i agree with the comment above. With Netflix and Amazon among others making "Original Content" for their platforms and even doing limited releases theatrically for some, it is simply bewildering that they won't or don't seem to consider a tangible market for releasing high quality mastered releases on disk formats alongside their streaming options.

No videophile imo ever would say that streaming offers a consistent and undeniable advantage over disk for PQ and AQ. It's almost certainly the other way around. It's why i hope one day we will see more disk based releases for their original content. I do know Netflix have released some shows onto disk but not nearly enough imo or any solid plan to do so for many popular titles.
