Netflix will carry the dvds of pay tv series when they are released on disc. Game of Thrones will be released on dvd in March.
Instant Watch however, won't be streaming these shows, as the pay channels have taken an overly adversarial position against Netflix (due to NF's rise in popularity in such a short time). Showtime stopped selling streaming contracts for it's shows to Netflix last spring. Starz ended their contract with NF last fall, and as of yesterday, all the titles they control internet streaming to, have been removed.
Dazed and confused over high tech.
Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!
