PCM is usually contained by .WAV as a files for computers/media players, .m2ts for Blu-ray Discs, .VOB for DVDs and .CDA for Audio CDs.

WAV is very popular because uncompressed WAV files are large, so file sharing of WAV files over the Internet is uncommon except among video, music and audio professionals where the uncompressed form has become the most popular of all audio formats and, for most, high speed large bandwidth web connections are commonplace. Many audio and music software manufacturers now favour it as their default file format though others are often supported. The high resolution of the format make it suitable for retaining first generation archived files of high quality, for use on a system where disk space is not a constraint, or in applications such as audio editing where the time involved in compressing and uncompressing data, and the losses in quality of such conversions are a concern.

Blu-ray uses the .m2ts transport stream for audio. There's software like VLC, AVS Video Editor, Apple's Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas that can read and edit these files. You can convert .WAV files to .m2ts without loss of compression.
