Bandwidth is too cheap for virtual DVDs. You can get connected almost anywhere and stream. And if you are really in need of content that badly you'll buy it from the "store" of your choice and download it. They make more money this way. Its toooooooooooo easy these days to break encryption, so once its busted its busted for life and the content owners don't want to have to keep reinvesting in newer tech/encryption schemes, so they won't offer it. Example... DVD / BR... Even CDs are almost a thing of the past since they are clear digital music and the content owners don't want it shared out in the open.
