Perhaps the slow growth is due, not to online streaming, but due to the fact that BD’s are expensive, with only a limited benefit. Really, the only reason for the fact that BDs have better quality than DVDs is the fact that they have more storage, and better compression. Resolution doesn’t make as big a difference as people assume.
Also, Kerry56 pointed out, I doubt Cinevia will have a positive effect on the sales of BD players. That said, I don’t have one, neither do I plan on getting one.

I’ll argue against the 4k comments though. I don’t think the world is ready for another physical format. The average TV size wouldn’t make 4k have alot of benefits and theres no content at the moment.
Obviously 4k will eventually take off, but you’ve still got alot of people that only went HD in the last 5 years and many of which who don’t actually give a crap about watching HD content on them. 4k vs 1080p is neglible on a TV thats less than 70 or 80inches. Maybe it’ll be a niche product like laserdisc?[/QUOTE]
Couldn’t have said it better, myself.
