The only way to watch a movie on a big screen HD tv if you want to see what you bought the tv for.

You guys keep saying this but it simply isn't true.

Blu-Ray is a digital video format and you can place the exact same data on a hard drive and use a hardware or software player with HDMI out to your large screen TV and x-channel sound system to deliver the exact same audio-visual quality.

In my view, it's more flexible, convenient, and cost effective.

Technically you are right but not so much in practice because where can you download full quality >40 GB films to play from your hard drive? The only practical means of getting them is ripping blu-rays (so you need a blu-ray drive anyway) or perhaps copying from a friend who has ripped his blu-rays. So what the guy keep saying is true for most practical use cases.
