It may be "antiquated" but if you "(totally) disavow" standard DVD purchases you're locking yourself out of hundreds of TV programs, both old and new. Distributors have all but abandoned BR releases of TV content. There are some, but they are few and tend to be mostly niche/cult/high profile titles. If it's something I want, I'll *never* eschew purchasing just because it's only on DVD. That goes for both TV and theatrical product.
