Somehow I don’t think either of Canada’s 2 Cable Monopolies are exactly quaking in their boots. These same 2 companies are also the 2 largest ISPs.
If Netflix becomes too popular, they’ll just throttle down the speed on this service and all of their customers will have to rely on regular Cable to receive their programs in “real time”.
