I read this article recently which sheds some light on the situation. Apparently studios are raising their licensing fees due to the unexpected success of online streaming, which in turn is raising Netflix's streaming pricing model (and, it's only expected to get worse).

Just give me my 2 DVDs a week and I'll be happy.
Makes me wonder why studios don't do their own streaming? Cut out the middleman and get all the money for themselves.
Once Netflix fades away because of these insane fee increases, the studios will try doing their own streaming service, only it will be $50 a month. Per studio. More if you want HD video. With additional fees if you want to watch on multiple devices. Plus another fee if you want access to older seasons of TV shows.
