It's coming back

Distribution of 4K movie content will almost certainly be on both streaming and optical disks. However, given the bandwidth requirements for medium quality streamed 4K is in the 15-20Mbps range, and that for high quality it will be above 100Mbps there are few other options for mass adoption of such high bit rates other than optical disk, especially given the average broadband bit rate in the US is between 8-9Mbps.

Either we will be subjected to an entirely new standard, or perhaps we'll be lucky and the Blu-Ray standards body will adopt something like the existing (but currently fairly rare) quad layer 100GB blu-ray disk.
