Cinelinx: "Several companies, such as Netflix, are fighting for something called “net neutrality” which basically means every company gets treated equal.

So companies like Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, etc… all want to charge Netflix to “make up” for the bandwith usage, on top of charging Netflix users more than Facebook users.

If you want to work for Comcast, great thought. Otherwise they did just as much as Hollywoods absurd licensing prices.

Netflix spends BILLIONS every year just to provide content, now they need to spend even more to make deals with internet providers.....

American ISPs are going to ruin the internet for us Americans.
We need an ISP that is removed from trying to push their own content over much better and modern content.
