Even with Netflix Instant being a million times better than it used to be, I still buy physical media simply because you never know when a studio is going to pitch a fit and pull their stuff from the service.
Plus you're only talking about X many users. It's pretty unlikely even countries like the US and the UK will ever have networks in place that will be able to cope if all TV and all movie releases are streamed.
