Comcast-Netflix Deal May Not Be a Bad Thing

I'm not sure how this guy thinks this "may not be a bad thing." Obviously, if Netflix has to cough up money to Comcast, that expense will be passed on to Netflix users, regardless whether or not they are Comcast subscribers. frown

Comcast wants Netflix to pay for direct access to its network, and Netflix is now paying. It has to. Its service is starting to slow down on Comcast’s network, and it needs direct access to ensure that things improve. The question is whether others can afford to do this.
