Actually, my point was that there is far more than you seem to think. What do you want, episodes of Leverage, Heroes, Lost, Mythbusters or the Office in HD?
They're there. You want indie art flicks like Sunshine Cleaning, Tyson, Primer, Gomorrah or Che? Same. More popular movies like Doubt, Race to Witch Mountain, Brokeback Mountain, The International and Paul Blart: Mall Cop? Plenty of them. And for older classic movies, they've got TONS.
Does it match the contents of netflix proper? Not at all. But it's chock full of good content. And with the new deal with Warner, we're going to see a lot more content on the streaming side. Expect similar deals to be worked out with other companies.
If you don't like Netflix, that's fine. But claiming that the service is no good and implying it doesn't have any good content rings pretty false.
