That's assuming Netflix can ever get streaming rights to everything. From everything I've read, that is a very high hurdle. Studios know the value of streaming and will throw up barriers.
I agree. I think eventually the idea will have to be a premium pricing plan for new releases.

It's like download-able music: the record companies didn't like it, but had to accept it, and found a way to keep most of their profits (through iTunes, etc.).
