Yes it is true Netflix DVD/Blu-ray service has 2.7 million active customers. Why because the DVD/Blu-ray catalog is much larger than streaming, much cheaper when you consider in order to view popular movies, series, you need several streaming accounts. Families living In rural American can't receive broadband internet required for streaming. Many people really like video/audio quality of DVD/Blu-ray versus streaming. For me I prefer buying Blu-ray, not 4K, for private home viewing because of the video/audio quality. I can understand why some continue to prefer to rent DVD/Blu-ray rather than stream. I subscribe to Netflix and can say the quality, though not equal to Blu-ray, is very good better than DVD. In the end these 2.7 million will become streamers, not buyers like us, our world is shrinking and there is not much we can do about that.
