Do you like money? Star Trek: Picard - Season One on dvd = $27.99 Star Trek: Picard - Season One on bluray = $23.39 Paramount plus for three months = $30.00 Most people are not going to stop and start Paramount + so that it might take them 4 or 5 years to spend 3 months streaming 5 seasons of PIcard. Paramount plus for 5 years = $600.00 And then a couple years later you want to rewatch Picard and paramount plus is bankrupt, so you have to buy the Bluray anyway, if that's even the optimal format in 2027. I personally believe in digital back ups of physical media, which is totally legal, even if storing a 60 gb bluray on a hard drive is a stupid waste of space. Re-encoding the digital media to something smaller is illegal, and if you're going to do that, it's about 20 times faster just to use torrents. Hey! Weird thing! The Bluray is cheaper than that DVD!? My guess is that DVDs are still cheaper to make, but Blurays are discounted for bulk sales, or some one is taking the price point on the chin to trick rubes into upgrading their dvd players with bluray players.
