It's no wonder sales of physical media have gone down so much.

On a streaming service, you can watch a movie, right away, and quite cheaply too.

Or you can buy a DVD or Blu-Ray, where one movie costs as much as a month's worth of Netflix, and you just get the movie with some plastic around it.

There is no value in buying the physical edition, you don't get anything from it. And the big blue part of the case for Blu-Rays makes them also ugly for just putting on a shelf...

@cirno Yes but when Netflix inevitably takes it down, I'll be prepared!

...that's pretty much it, yeah.
