    Carnival Row is lavishly produced, and must be one of the more expensive television shows today, with production values similar to a movie.

    Some of these 4k shows look better than any Blu-ray on the market.

    Boycotting streaming at this point is just cutting off your nose to spite your own face. All you are doing is denying yourself some excellent entertainment distributed in a convenient method. The subscription services are no different than having a network subscription via cable or satellite TV. I guess you never have watched anything via those services, either.

    Correct. I have no lack of quality material to lock at with discs only. No interest in TV or streaming variants. The disc backlog lasts for several years of viewing pleasure, at least. :)

    It's not worth it. It's best to let people with such logic alone with their set ways. Whether it's the disc only crowd or those that espouse streaming only.

    Streaming of The Crown is also a treat. Maisel was a one trick pony for me and I stopped after 2 episodes. Looking forward to The Dark Crystal series though which supposedly looks and is amazing per the reviews.

    RAH, you need to watch Good Omens, though I hear there is a physical release forthcoming.

    My reasons for not using streaming are very solid. On the other hand if someone is happy with the quality of streaming, the lack of real control over the material and the lack of privacy and the (potential) budget friendlyness they have their solid reasons to stream. I could not care less except for the unpleasant effect that the more people stream, and especially stream only, the worse the choice will get on disc limiting my freedom to watch things as I prefer.

    I never said otherwise. We all make personal decisions based on our own reasons and your prior post made that abundantly clear that you were steadfast in that decision.

    My paternal grandfather, who was born around the turn of the century, could and would give a litany of reasons why he refused to have mail delivered to his house. He was convinced that home mail delivery was a government plot to control the populace. He insisted on having a PO box to the day he died.

    I have no idea why that memory came back to me at this specific moment.

    Finished Ep 6 of this show today. Really great in all respects, design, sound, acting, writing.

    I’ve been streaming Amazon through my Sony Blu-ray player but Amazon notified me they will discontinue supporting the device 9/26. But I discovered my cable TV provider, Cox Comm, carries Amazon Prime though the cable box. I have to say the Stream-O-Vision through them is outstanding. Excellent PQ. I don’t have a 4K set but I suspect the originating file resolution is 4K.
