Re: Netflix

I doubt Netflix could get away with blocking an ISP, as it would be considered a net neutrality violation, and many of the countries Netflix serves have net neutrality legislation or regulation.

On the other hand, we may see Netflix and an ISP sign a deal to include Netflix access with all ISP customer accounts, much like Bell Canada signed a deal with Microsoft to use Hotmail for all customer e-mail (on Bell's own domain).

Blocking a customer ISP... would be breach of contract/fraud, much more serious.. A Criminal violation in most countries..

I..E.Collecting payment for service and refusing to deliver said service..

Net neutrality doesn't work both ways in the US. ESPN has already granted access to content to exclusive ISPs without a single legal issue. Netflix is already doing some of this by only allowing ISPs who participate in their Open CDN to have SuperHD.

I think we should all resolve to call it "Normal HD" from now on.
