4K Blu-ray has already lost to streaming

4K Blu-ray has already lost to streaming It may seem a tad hyperbolic to say this, but 4K Blu-ray could very well be the Holy Grail of home theater technology. Finally, a disc that makes movies look almost as good as they do in theaters, where many films are projected digitally in 4K.
It is my opinion that the streaming services are not really offering HD or 4K. When the compression artifacts obliterate fine detail with a uniform "computer gradient" like surface, it's not really HD or 4K. At least not for those who care about video quality. Also, streaming services have some nasty judder. Blu-Ray is the only choice for a cinephile home movie collection.
