Re: Will Comcast follow Sony's lead?
I think you're overreacting simply because NBC already has all of their content lock away in its own walled garden. Set-top boxes are crippled, both in DRM and in features. Hulu uses flash garbage to render a horrible excuse for digital video. Stuff is already locked down.
They have no reason to jump on content filters as they already have controls on the media. And in terms of content filtering, it would be important to remember that Comcast would have to pay to install and maintain them as well (the internet side of Comcast vs the legacy media side).
As for your concerns about content filtering, encrypt your traffic. That's the way everything is going to go anyway. End to end encryption will eventually be the norm the way things are going. That's probably a good thing.
