Yeah, when you are splitting hairs on things like HD vs 4K, streaming is just too unreliable to consistently provide stable resolution. As annoying as physical is, it’s still the best way to watch 4K content if you want to guarantee you are getting the best possible picture.
Even the differences in streaming services and the hardware they are streamed on is unbelievably frustrating. Vudu just allowed HDR on Nvidia Shield Android OS last week, but still doesn’t on Sony Android TV. It’s just dumb.
I’m just going to keep using this as my venting session…
It’s really not that much different then streaming vs downloading video games, other than input lag of course. There are no services that I have found yet that allow you to download 4k content, you can only stream it. Even though the technology has improved significantly, do you really want to rely on streaming your games over downloading/playing from a disc? You would pick digital download/physical disc every time, no?
