Netflix CEO calls out Comcast on network neutrality

Author: 

When most Comcast subscribers complain, it’s a blip. When the CEO of Netflix vents to his 120,000 subscribers on Facebook, it’s a salvo. Reed Hastings doesn’t agree with Comcast’s approach to network neutrality and caps — and he wants everyone to know it. His beef? Watch Netflix, Hulu or HBO Go on Xbox and it counts against Comcast’s broadband cap for consumers. Use Comcast’s own Xfinity app and it doesn’t. Translation: Anyone worried about hitting the cap will watch what they can on Xfinity, giving it an advantage over the other services like Netflix or even a service it partially owns (but has no say over), Hulu.
