The beginning of the end for physical optical discs? Download or stream only?...

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?
