You know, one of the main reason why I watch more TV series on Netflix than movies is because they don’t have a very good movie selection - most of their movies are weak B movies instead of the the big blockbusters of our day, and I’ll bet that I’m not alone in that regard. Get more of today’s movies, Netflix!!!

Yes, I agree with you jkingjr, I’m hoping the streaming industry grows a lot more. I think it will when more competitors enter the ring. I still feel streaming movie industry is still in its infancy and if someone is looking to invest in a growing industry it exists right here.
If the pricing curve is set correctly I think it will be capable of cutting piracy by 80%. Why would I pirate any movie that I can get reliably and for a reasonable monthly cost that I can get on Netflix? It wouldn’t make sense.
