It is on the customer if they can not click the right button to start the movie.
Right, but this is the old style which most people are familiar with, and the content will play. So when the user sees the red/green, they get what's going on.
Full 3D will simply not play if chosen from the menu. Now the disc may saw that the user may not have the right equipment, but this isn't to say that the user won't be confused while they are wearing their red/green glasses.
It may be on the customer, but if I were Netflix I'd be worried about confusing a large percentage of my subscriber base, and then paying my customer support representives to field calls explaining what 3DTVs, Active Shutter glasses, 3D BluRay players, etc. are.
You have to realize that the average Netflix subscriber isn't as knowledgable as the average AVS user when it comes to CE.
I would love to see Netflix rent 3DBR so I wouldn't have to buy it... I just don't see it as a viable company decision for Netflix right now until adaption increases drastically.
