Blu-ray, not DVD. And the reason is that Blu-ray quality is much, much better than even the best online streaming. If you don't care about picture or sound quality it doesn't matter.
Also, Netflix and other streaming services tend not to have newer movies. Dark Knight Rises? Avengers? Ted? Total Recall? Trouble With The Curve? None of these are on Netflix.
