I guess it was coming sooner or later. So many people using bandwidth for streaming media something had to shift. The Hollywood reporter posted a small story about Verizon's CEO Lowell Mcadam being open to a deal. Whether he is simply salivating over making some more money or addressing a real bandwidth problem (and salivating over charging us more) a change is coming.

Good read. I wonder how long until one of the streaming services like Netflix or Hulu is "bundled" with your Internet bill...with a small increase of course :)

That is a reasonable prediction. Hmm. I can see a battle if they did. Some may argue that content is content so why pay for Netflix, or whatever streaming video they watch. OTA Netflix? Haha.

It's all good until some cable provider strikes an exclusive deal with an online streaming provider.
I can see trying to watch a movie on Netflix and being greeted with a message "Comcast exclusive content. Please log in with your Comcast account."
