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.

That will change when 4K video matures to the point where the much more efficient H.265 codec (selected as the 4K standard) actually gets built into 4K equipment.   The stuff they're selling right now is just interim hardware, much like the "HD ready" sets sold in the early 2000's.  That's the big reason

I'm sitting on the 4K sidelines for now.
