Well maybe Netflix wouldn't have to go this route if ISP didn't have caps. Only 2 hours and 45 minutes of SuperHD streaming per day would put one over a 250 GB cap.
Also Netflix already pays for it's bandwidth.
And Netflix is getting the bandwidth it paid for.
But if they want to see their customers happy with "Super" HD, they're going to have to buy some more
bandwidth. Evidently, they figured out that last-mile caching is the optimum way to go given the effects of Network Neutrality.
Time Warner is probably willing to go along and allow Netflix to pay to place their caches, but I don't think they're appreciative of Netflix' publicity stunts.
