Blu-ray backers, including Sony (SNE) and Disney (DIS), face a growing chorus of skeptics that say the window for a HD disc format is closing. Discs of all kinds may become obsolete as a new wave of digital media services starts to flow into the living room via the internet.

    It is way too soon for ubiquitous internet digital media services. Broadband penetration is too small and the speeds available do not support true HD quality media. Plus there is the question of support by the studios.

     

    Try again in 5-10 years.

    Where am I going to put 70 terabytes of movies or Televisions series. How much Hard drive space is the Harry Potter "Septology" going to take up in 1080p HD. I want the extra features as well. My media player does not have the hard drive space. And I keep movies for a long time. Am I going to have to pay the "bit tax" that going over my 50 gig a month download limit incurs. Maybe when we have 100 Tb holographic drives hooked up to 29.99/month fiber lines.
