Slowly but surely, spinning discs are dying out, and Samsung just put another nail in their coffin. The company told Forbes that it’s done producing new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players — and CNET was able to confirm that Samsung is halting production on at least some of its 1080p Blu-ray players as well.
“Samsung will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the US market,” a Samsung spokesperson told CNET.
It's gonna be a sad day for yours truly when optical disks are dead & gone. Although I don't buy as many DVDs & Blu-ray disks as I used to, I still prefer to have a physical disk than streaming via Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. I still buy CDs as well. How old skool is that?
