It's interesting that the studios want to keep their 30 day window to protect DVD sales, as pointless as that may be. That just gives video pirates 30 days to rip a DVD and distribute it on-line for free!
To boot: the ripped copy will probably be a high quality HD bluray, whereas the Netflix will be some lower hollywood/bandwidth-specified tier and may not even be the best available even if your bandwidth and computer could handle it and it was originally mastered at higher quality.
