Comment Doesn't Netflix already stream movies? (Score 1) 147

Streaming content is more akin to broadcasting than it is to the physical delivery of DVDs. The FBI disclaimer at the beginning of movies penalizes broadcasting movies under the penalty of the law. The purchasing of a physical DVD does not allot Netflix the legal means to broadcast a DVD. Plain and simple. Netflix already provides streaming services legally via other arrangements. Therefore, I'm not sure what the point of this posting is.
