(when can we expect downloaded, blu-ray quality, movie content)
There will most likely be claims of 4k streaming long before we ever see real BD quality (video / audio).

We're spending a ton of money to keep the Blu-ray tray filled. I figure things are soon to upgrade to MicroSD chips as Blu-ray discs hold about 25GB/50GB (dual layer) worth of information vs 32GB/64gB microSD cards.

(i'm aware of larger discs, will our Blu-ray players, play quad layer discs)

I think the rule of thumb is, price/capacity will half/double every eighteen months. ???

VHS > Laser Disc > DVD > Blu-ray > ???

Your above is a bit confusing to my itty-bitty mind. For watching television, my understanding, that would be download speed. Sending Mom & Dad pictures of the little guy, would be upload speed.

What am I missing?

...

I made numerous calls to Sony tech support, they insisted that my upload speed would need to be 5 Mbps or higher for hi rez viewing. Why that is, I do not know. But, my experience did not improve when increasing the download speed, it wasn't until I increased my upload speed that I was able to stream hi rez more often.
