Disc sales is the only way studios will get my money. I don't subscribe to any streaming services, and I've only been to a commercial theater once since 2007 ( so twice in 13 years ). Disc or no sale.

This is a smart move. Two studios instead of paying by themselves, can divide the market.

People are still buying discs. Streaming is ok but a lot of folks have poor bandwidth or can't afford internet access so for them, dvd are still the go to..

Same way here. Put it on a silver disc or I likely won't see it.

I've been that way for a lot of years, but I have to say, streaming has gotten extremely good with H.265. We are currently watching "Lost in Space" season 2 on Netflix in 4K/HDR. It was shot with 8K cameras and looks amazing, even when projected on my 110" scope screen zoomed in. It really rivals 4K discs and I haven't noticed any banding thus far through 7 episodes, and that's something I always look for.

I just have little time to watch streaming. It would be like having a gym membership I never used ( I bought nice road bikes instead - that's my gym ).

DVDs are not going anywhere.

Just remember, Netflix, while it is still a streaming service, they still make millions via DVD..

Yeah, they still do the DVD mailout every month.. Cash cow so to speak..
