Re: Netflix "bundled" with ISP Broadband plan?
said by FutureMon:Thank you Disney for your ESPN 360 extortion. Now we have people wanting similar types of deals for other services.
The ISP can charge extra to allow unmetered Netflix streaming, and Netflix gets their (smaller) cut from the ISP as opposed to charging the consumer directly.
WTF! Disney is NOT requiring ISPs to carry ESPN360. It's only an option. If they don't wanna carry it they don't have to. Nothing lost. That portal is NOT bundled with any TV offerings that they normally would require. claiming it's extortion is a flat out lie. They're not extorting anything.
Sorry, I meant ESPN3.
