Lol, This exactly! ^

Try streaming 1080p on a regular basis. If you don't think 1080p matters, then you obviously don't have a good enough tv or projector.
I'm just sayin', i don't have a bluray player (will get one when this comes out, I AM interested in this set!) yet every movie I have on my HD's is high def and easily transferable.

It's the age of the internet, the ftp and the usb. You don't have to stream, but HD stuff is more than easily accessible.

If you think discs matter this much, you don't have a good enough internet connection.
Here's the thing- in the US, geography and general business practices are very big impediments to getting high speed internet. And that's not even counting the stuff that's good enough to stream HD movies or games in perfect quality.

It's not that. I prefer the hard copy. For me, it's hard copy or bust -- otherwise it's getting deleted immediately after watching. I want the bells and whistles, the full nine yards, and I don't feel like a glutton for saying that as I purchase things pretty infrequently, anyway.

I might be in an ultimately losing battle but that's just how I feel. It's similar to why I never digitally download games I'm out to purchase. I want the box, I want the manual (increasingly rare as they are) and I want the disc.
I totally get that, actually. As a comic book reader, I'm seeing all the stuff going digital and all my friends asking when I'm making that leap. But I still like getting the pamphlets every Wednesday.

With all that said, I'm still buying these. And a bluray player to play them.

With all that we're reading, it's easy to forget this isn't official yet. That's pretty funny.

Is that a mock-up or did you get it from an official source?
Definitely a mock up, it was just nice to see a news site use it.

Personally I think blu-rays are out of date already, what they should do is release the whole series in 1080p x264 on a 2.5" Portable USB Hard Drive.
I would buy that over the Blu-rays if the option were presented.

Give me all 7 seasons remastered on a decent 500GB-750GB portable hard drive with a custom 24th-century Trek-style case and a USB 3.0 connector.

I'd pay up to $300AU for that, Paramount.

Why bother with all those moving parts and wires? Make it a solid state HD with wi fi if you really want to talk obsolete.

Or just put it on a plastic disc.

Cutting edge thinking.

Looks like it may be bypassing Blu Ray completely, or at least initially...

I'm not putting a lot (or any) stock in this gizmodo post. There's no actual information we don't already know, a whole lot of assumption, and attribution to a Digital Bits post that's several months old as well as a Slashdot post that specifically mentions the blu-ray disc talked about in newer Digital Bits posts.

Re: The OFFICIAL STNG-R discussion thread!

We already had an early report saying it would be on Netflix first...I find that hard to believe since its taking 5-6 months to get the first 4 episodes out by Xmas.
