You assume too much about what I think. That may be how you treat it,
but that's not how I see it.
On digital, the broadcast quality is quite adequate - to be honest,
there's not a lot of difference between an SD DVD and SD Freeview (at
least for the BBC channels where they use a decent bitrate). Also, on
the non-commercial channels there aren't any in-program adverts.
In some cases I've bought DVDs simply because it's more convenient
than collecting the TV broadcasts and transferring them - not to
mention, I tend to buy them when I see them on offer, definitely not
at full price. So many of my DVDs have been bought for the
'convenience factor' rather than any quality difference.
And of course, there is the assumption that everything on TV is also
available on DVD.
