Its been having a bumpy ride...but it is pretty clear that it is the way of the future for home media consumption. Netflix is the best provider right now (and we will see what their original content turns into).
There is competition coming in other forms but I can't say how it will play out. Big competition might come from bundled packages from the cable providers/content creators (like HBO Go or comcast only crap) but there's a potential for some legal pressure there I would think... The DoJ might want to get involved since its a lot easier to lock down control over digital distribution than it is for physical media (if the studio won't cut redbox or netflix a deal on DVDs, they can still buy them on the open market and rent them as much as they want).
