What about premium station shows like HBO or Showtime?
I don't know specifically how it all works, but no, not all shows go up to the point in which they are out on DVD. And no, not every movie out on DVD goes straight to Netflix. In fact, it is happening less and less often because the movie companies still want you to buy it on PPV or buy the DVD, where they make a much larger margin of profit.
