Blu-ray is just as dead as DVD.
Digital / Cloud is the way forward.
Not everyone in the world has access to internet infrastructure to take advantage of digital/streaming services.
Are there any streaming services which can provide blu-ray quality video?

No that completely screws the huge amount of people that don't care about Live or don't have internet hooked up to it altogether. Very very bad decision if they took away physical media.
I'm sure they will either license Blu-ray, or they will create their own proprietary high density format. I'm thinking the latter is more likely.
If they create thier own format they won't be able to sell their product as a home ent. unit because it'll lack blu-ray playback. Would they be willing to sacrifice that? Seems at odds with their intent to encourage us to use their devices for that purpose.
