We both stream and get discs from them.

The harsh reality it's that not everyone has good enough network bandwidth to really stream 4k, not to mention the extra (quite significant) load from a modern audio track.

We live in the country, and on a good day we get about 16Mb throughput. We can stream an HD picture, but trying to stream 4k & Atmos results in a nice (but not great) picture and a two channel audio track.

Streaming is less hassle than renting discs, but it's not as good a product. Even if you can get enough network space, it's a pretty compressed image.

Probably the same time that DMC offers them as enrollment titles.

I get 500Mbit down and I rent discs all day from Netflix. Why would I ever want to stream a crappier, lossy version of the real deal?

Also, many movies aren't available for streaming on Netflix, but you can rent them on disc.

Because it's not the same product. Streaming is mostly original content not available on disc, while the disc rentals are primarily non-exclusive content you can rent or buy anywhere else.

Netflix 4K (Bitrates!?)

Ok....this may be a “noob” question...but I don’t watch much on Netflix. But I’ve read that you should have at least 25 mbps for a 4k HDR/DV signal. So while watching this in 4K Dolby Vision...my screen says 15.25 mbps?!?

But when I check my signal....( I paused the movie to check) it reads 88.81mbps?!? So then I unpaused the show and continued...it still read 15.25 mpbs when I hit Display?! But my Sony TV also says I have a 4K signal in Dolby Vision displayed! So if anyone can explain this to me...it would be greatly appreciated!!

Streaming services are good for people who say "I want to watch a movie tonight"

Disc delivery is good for people who say "I really want to watch (specific film title)".

I don't use Netflix anymore to rent discs but it was fun. I got sick of the lack of Blu-ray discs available for rental so I cancelled the subscription. They have mostly just DVD's and some Blu-ray but not enough to keep it active for me. Just have a streaming subscription only for now with them.

I wish there was a Blockbuster open near me. Miss them. Thanks Netflix for that.

Streaming is good but not better than disc. It's getting better though some of the 4K streams look great but not better than UHD.

I can live with playing discs and streaming, I love it.

That’s interesting, because I find they have Blu-ray’s for most of the movies I want. Out of curiosity, what type of films do you watch that they don’t have on Bluray? Mostly older catalog titles?
