We are compadres up to a point. I do NOT believe the in computer, smartphone crazed world of today. I am a Luddite.
I own complete dvd sets of Dragnet (not "most" as some sets), Adam-12, the Untouchables, CHipS, Peter Gunn, Mr. Lucky, Mike Hammer and others. And CDs.
As the great Al Kooper (played organ on B Bringing It All Back Home) pleaded with young people: "Listen to me, don't let someone else own your music."
First, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube et al TV show all kinds of movies and TV shows and you get thousands of songs streaming by subscription. Then, they speed up the dropping off of ones from certain new studio deals (Kill Bill will be your most recent release date to watch) or record label deals or sale of big companies to foreign ( German or Chinese) concerns and then reduction of availability or cancellations.
As I said to medical assistant woman: "Fine, what if your music source if later bought by an Arab corporation and they rule no songs by any woman who does not dress in modest attire? Or bans an artist who made statements they don't agree with?" Bob Dylan was stopped from performing in China until the Chicom heads could read detailed lists of songs and full lyrics to make sure none would criticize them. He finally agreed. "Chimes of Freedom" not about Hong Kong freedom, is it?" "No, commissars. Not at all, sirs."
I largely agree with you on having hard copy of my programming. I bought one of those Mormon Clearplay DVD/Bluray players to facilitate watching newer movies. I don’t have all the shows you have, but I did get the A-Team for my kids, the Prisoner, complete Rockford Files and Perry Mason, plus individual seasons of Green Acres, Get Smart, the Fugitive, Maverick, Superman (for the kids) and F-Troop. When traveling, MeTV usually has “The Rifleman” on, that will do in a pinch. I marvel that I can pick from 70 years of the best television at under a dollar per episode.
