You choose to focus only on the entertainment value of Netflix, and it's easy to argue that people don't really need that form of entertainment and could choose other "free-er" forms of leisure.
First of all, that is a very utopic argument to make. People live in a society, and most people don't care about the details of technology, privacy, DRM and the moral / ethical implications of all that. Let's call these people "sheep". Most sheep just want to watch good shows and couldn't care less about the political aspects. And those people who actually care about that stuff still have sheepish friends they want to connect with, and they want to watch the same shows.
Also, there are many other, extremely useful services provided by other information harvesting megacorps. Google search, google maps, cloud infrastructure, social networking... by banning all of that from your life, because it's not "free", you are effectively banning a large part of recent human progress and civilization from your life.
