But to the question on the thread, we use Netflix and Prime in the living room and bedrooms. Disc only on the theater room.
Don't get me wrong I can get firmware updates just not for netflix in order to get DD 5.1. But my receiver matrixes the sound and for the amount I watch netflix it isn't bad. I do most of my action watching useing BD. Also even though Oppo is not making anymore new players they said that they will continue to support players that are out there now with tech and firmware support.

I think Netflix and Amazon are the best for their robust content library and investments into original shows.

Again, I'd rather watch a Blu-ray. I was watching the Dark Knight on Netflix (the poll leader) and noticed severe posterization in dark scenes, particularly when he is in China and swoops down off the building at night. It took me right out of the movie. I switched to same scene on the Blu-ray and it was gone.
