"Samsung announced its last range of 4K Blu-ray players at CES 2017 and has since scrapped its plans to launch a new high-end 4K Blu-ray player this year, choosing to focus instead on smart TVs and smartphones. However, it remains possible that Samsung will continue to introduce new Blu-ray player models outside the US market and will continue to manufacture existing Blu-ray players for years to come."

I am sorry but not everyone has the internet bandwith to stream. There are parts of rural america where high speed internet isnt there. Then there are the old folks like me who pay for the movie, game, cd etc because we want to own a physical tangible copy.

I honestly wouldn't mind if I could download a DRM-free MKV that's the same or better quality than the Blu-Ray. Kind of like how bandcamp.com treats music. but that's not happening any time soon...
