DVD Only = Available to rent only for those with a DVD subscription.  This is going to be most new movies.  Quite a bit of TV starts out this way and streams later (and some movies).

Instant Streaming Available = Available for all subscription types!  This is content that you can rent on a DVD or stream instantly.  The Holy Grail of Netflix content.
