Comcast and Netflix work out a deal


By

Working collaboratively over many months, the companies have established a more direct connection between Netflix and Comcast, similar to other networks, that's already delivering an even better user experience to consumers, while also allowing for future growth in Netflix traffic. Netflix receives no preferential network treatment under the multi-year agreement, terms of which are not being disclosed.

There will be considerable consternation over this agreement, but the immediate result will be happy customers for both Netflix and Comcast. The bigger picture is yet to be determined.
