Exactly. OUTSIDE of the "cloud", there is very little out there that is as goof-proof, multi-platform, and easy to use as optical media. If you compress in h.265 ,burned as data to 2-layer BD, you'll have almost as much on a 50-cent disk as people now shuttle around on USD external archive drives. They're easy to mass-replicate, cheap to mail, durable yet also cheap enough to be disposable as well.

Hollywood isn't giving up on pressing discs just yet, either. While it may be fewer than before, it's certainly still making them money. Some people want a physical piece of media, period. For whatever reason.

It serves a purpose, for a shrinking but still lucrative customer base.
