The studios would if they could, there ARE laws that actually place taxes on home theaters...

But with the recent increase of cost for netflix subscribers, I don't see many people obeying this law, it costs almost as much as cheap cable to have it now....

It cost more than cheap cable here! Cheap cable is $10 a month. For 1 dvd and streaming (as of September 1st) it will be $16.

Well, I know the reason netflix flourished was originally due to the low cost of having several DVD's out at one time. I remember a package where they would send out upto 7 discs, and send the next ones out when those returned. Then they moved to streaming, and grew HUGE. The issue, a LOT of SEASONS are not available on stream... You have to go by disc... Streaming has only one dvd at a time allowed... Imagine trying to watch a whole season, one disc every other week.... Would take a whole year to watch a series, if you are lucky.

At one disc I can watch 3 discs a week. Yeah watching entire series would be hard but all the series I want to watch are all on instant stream. Heroes, Numb3rs, Weeds, Greek, Doctor Who, etc. Although Spartacus will be taken off tomorrow didn't have a chance to watch it.

I think Netflix will suffer now that they don't let you get DVDs sent to your house. But to answer the original question yeah I think it is. But I think that you can share it with the people that live in your house. I mean if one TV is hooked up and that is the only thing its used on I think its fine.

AFAIK Netflix does not let multiple users watch video simultaneously. That is where I think they would be annoyed.
