My perfect solution is movies delivered on physical media that I can easily backup to a local server, with a Movies Anywhere code.

Right now I have ripped all my Blu-rays using MakeMKV, then using Plex as my server. But itís not very user friendly. If they could perfect it for the average consumer, that would be great.

IMHO, even if most of the process was automated the average consumer would not pay the cost of the hardware. Then you have the problem of no menus unless you do ISO's which will not work on BDA authorized players. To this day trying to find a media player that does lossless immersive audio, menus, HDR, original frame rate, etc. is a real pain.

AFAIK Kaleidescape is the only device that has BD and UHD BD quality and plays via a media server. The hardware and software is very expensive.

Another issue is that a tax could be introduced for carbon in the home. The bigger your footprint, the bigger the tax. I fully suspect this will be introduced. This would mean many households would have to make the decision to watch far less tv lest they end up with a huge bill. Indeed, it may encourage many to scrap the tv altogether. I have said for years, the governments of the world (especially the Tories in the U.K. in my opinion) would find a way to tax our leisure time. Carbon tax for households is coming and itís coming soon. Be it the U.K. or the US.

One way or another, m going to be right about the tv in the home decreasing.
Furthermore, gaming by proxy would then be affected also.

TV usage is a tiny percentage of the electricity and carbon footprint in most people's homes. Do you think everyone is going to stop using microwaves and ovens? Do you think people are going to make sure to turn off their lights whenever they aren't necessary? Do you think people are going to heat (or cool down) their homes way less? All of those things make a much bigger impact than using a big screen TV for a few hours every day.

You just keep coming up with new reasons why everyone is going to be giving up their TVs in the next couple decades but they all continue to be absurd.

It was a gorgeous day here! Sunny, cloudless sky, reliable light breeze, and with a high temperature of about 77 degrees Fahrenheit.

While some here chose to worry about one highly improbable scenario after another, I spent the day like this:

A day like this one provided some much needed perspective. It was worlds of fun, too.
