Re: Netflix

said by silbaco:

I don't know if we will ever see another price hike. It's only a matter of time before this company starts hitting up ISPs for money. Netflix has gotten big enough that within a couple years they will be able to force ISPs to pay them for the service, or threaten to pull the plug and devastate the ISP. ISPs can't block Netflix but Netflix can block ISPs.

Depends on the ISP I guess.
Comcast owns NBC and has access to it's content. Hence they may do what they can to protect it.
Verizon has redbox, so I think Verizon could care less about Netflix. Sure they like netflix money, but if Netflix jerks them around...

I dunno if Amazon has made any exclusive deals with a ISP as of yet, or if they will ever.
Same with Hulu plus.
