If the iPad supported Silverlight and Android tablets supported Flash.. (and people actually used Silverlight) then you would have the same argument.
Comparative logic FAIL
Fact is.. there is no APP that replaces the ability to seamlessly browse the web without getting a constant barrage of "you need to download the latest FLASH player" messages...
I'm not going to argue your last sentence, that's a real concern for me as I compare these two with the intent to buy. But saying Netflix and Blockbuster are the same isn't being honest. I have Netflix, and I'm not switching to Blockbuster based on a tablet. I have a feeling many feel the same. In theory, they offer the same service. But I consume content on other devices as well, and Netflix is ingrained within those options while Blockbuster isn't.
