Netflix Gives into Comcast's Extortion Plot


Netflix has agreed to pay Comcast to make sure their movies stream smoother over Comcast Internet.

So in other words, Comcast basically held Netflix hostage by slowing down the streaming of Netflix movies.

It was flat out extortion on the part of Comcast.

This just opens the door for stupid retrans fights on the Internet, just like we see with TV stations. 

The slide down a very long and slippery slope has begun.
