Don't blame Netflix for content restrictions put on by their suppliers. The movie and music companies put restrictions on distribution, and Netflix must follow them or lose the content.
Netflix is for-profit, yes, but if the movie moguls don't get their cut, we don't get to see the movie. The movie industry bought-in to the MS DRM scheme, but that's a proprietary system, take it or leave it.
And bluntly, $7.95 a month might buy one ticket at the second-run theaters, but probably not at a first-run show. So for unlimited use, of course you're not going to get first-run. That's going to be confined to the pay-per-view space and cost a lot more. TANSTAAFL.
