The consumer is still going to subscribe to Netflix if that is what they want. If they have a low cap then they end having to stream fewer movies. The fewer movies that Netflix has to deliver to the consumer the higher their profit margin.
The fewer movies I can stream the less of a bargin Netflix seems. Thus I cancell my subscription which = LOST REVENUE.
The fewer movies a person can legally stream because of low caps becomes the more illegal divx avi's that get pirated because the files are smaller.
This = LOST revenue for both Netflix and content providers.
Why can't they just give people the fast dumb unlimited pipe they are asking for? I'd pay $100 a month for that. It would allow me to dump my useless commercial-laden cable tv, and it would still be cheaper than what I pay now.
