4) no extras
netflix is about the same price as ONE premium channel
(*) Admittedly, at least some of the netflix streamed stuff hits this too.. Even 'letterboxed' stuff seems to sometimes be at the wrong aspect ratio. I think I noticed this from the IT Crowd DVD vs streamed (and maybe vs recording it on whatever channel it was on -- at a friend's house)
