JeffriesTube, with your fetish for video technology buzzwords you should understand that the quality offered by all those services is awfull. They may claim HD, they may even claim 1080p, but the video is compressed so much that calling it HD is worthless. It may look better than non-HD streaming, but it still can't even compete with DVD.
When everyone has fios and can handle high quality streams, you may be able to convince me of an online streaming option. Until that day, the only thing I'd consider is a DVD/Blu-Ray subscription. And as Temis said, direct to dvd is for 3rd tier properties. As long as there is money to be made on TV or movies Star Trek will never go direct to dvd.
Give it a few years (or months), this technology doesn't stop improving, it only gets better. That's why we need to replace our computer systems and networks every two years or less...
I think it's funny that all these new technological worlds are opening up, but no one will believe it will ever be good for anything, y'know like televison in the fifties "it's a fad" they said. Same with computers in the sixties, "there so big !! and TOO expensive !!". Same with the internet, "no one's gonna us that"... Same with DVD's, so much resistance, even Quentin Tarantino hated the format...all actual conversations happening all thru hisory about every new technology. It's all about potential.
Someone has to be the first, and maybe it requires a brand like Trek to do it... wake up and smell the future.
