For Netflix, they only have some movies for DVD only. Is it because they need to get rights to things? I heard that they will be getting more rights over the next year or so. Answers? Thanks.

Money. Netflix and any other similar company needs to purchase the rights to distribute movies and television shows. Each distribution company has to be dealt with separately which can take time.
