Re: Pollyanna's think carriers won't use their clout
There's also the fact that this helps Netflix stifle competition. It can afford to pony up the vig to Comcast. A smaller startup seeking to compete? Not so much. It's bad for consumers.

Pollyannas think carriers won't use their clout
The court of public opinion will not hold carriers in check. How many times have these guys held up Fox, CBS and other big content providers in the cable world? Now it's happening with Internet content, and the only thing to stop them from holding content providers over a barrel is the law. There's not enough competition and freedom of choice for the free market to work.
