Original Programming on Netflix. Plus they started Red Envelope Entertainment, which helps produce and distribute independent films.

1.) Even if you have a good connection, the quality of the programs is sub-DVD and way below Blu-Ray.

2.) They have tens of thousands of DVDs, but only a thousand or so streaming films.

That being said, I primarily use streaming to watch television series. It's too much of a hassle to get individual discs for a series (especially since I only get 2 discs at a time), so adding a TV series to Instant Queue is fast, easy and efficient.
