Their Whole Argument Appears To Be Based On A Lie

Why should we be burdened with anchors and costs? The reason Netflix can offer an $8.99 service is because they have no costs other than acquiring the content,” said Shaw president Peter Bissonnette.

No other costs? How about their extremely high speed connection to the Internet? They are paying for their end of the bandwidth. There isn't anyone out there giving it to them for free.

Seriously..Netflix isn't BitTorrent. It's amazing how easily they forget the "little" details.
