Maybe it is if you're a movie studio. From the standpoint of the consumer it pretty much sucks.

nah DVD is bad and streaming is worse than a joke (streaming uses up most of the internet bandwidth in the U.S. and for that we get higher broad band bills each month and people get crappy video and audio, such a waste compared to physical media, save the bandwidth for streaming sports and youtube video or whatnot that would never end up on physical media instead)

The combination of these newer optical disks and a blue laser do offer greater recording densities than the DVD's they were intended to replace.

The remainder of the BluRay related standards are purely concerned with Digital Rights Management and the desire of the copyright holders to control what you can and cannot do with that premium priced disk you just bought. If you cut through all of the motion picture industry propaganda, there's practically nothing in it from the consumer perspective.

Thankfully we have things like AnyDVD HD.
