Currently we have HD season one of ENT, HD season three of TNG and the Nu-Trek all vying for our money. I could afford to buy all these things but I do not have the time to watch them.
Then don't buy them. Why buy them anyway? They'll all be on Netflix streaming, if they aren't already. Why purchase the discs? What would be the point of owning the physical media when they are just dust collectors?
With physical media, once you buy the discs, you own that copy until you decide to get rid of it. You don't have to worry about CBS pulling the rights to TNG on Netflix, losing your internet connection, or lose a big chunk of your bandwidth by watching a few episodes.
