This is exactly why I don't rely on them for access to movies.
Same here.

The problem with this, though, is that a lot of streaming movies aren't making it to disc anymore.

Then they don't get my money. F' 'em. I don't have any FOMO when it comes to movies or shows on streaming services. Do you realize how many expensive great wines I'll never have a chance to drink, or beautiful women I'll never sleep with? I don't have any FOMO there either. Besides, I have a huge number of movies on my NAS now that I either have never seen, or re-bought in 4K to re-watch and haven't had time. I have a constant backlog, including All Quiet On The Western Front, which was on Netflix was it not?  All the big movies I'm interested in will come to disc- John Wick 4, Dune Part 2, Oppenheimer etc. Too much to watch now.

Another big hurdle for me to go full streaming, all the time is the audio quality. 

They seem to have made huge improvements in the video quality but I have yet to stream a movie (one that I also own on Blu-ray) and thought the audio was as good as the physical disc.

Absolutely Right!
