Netflix, who's stock is currently valued at twice that of Apple, recently inked a deal to pay more than $1 Billion to movie studios for streaming rights and is in discssions that would have it pay as much as $100,000 PER EPISODE of new TV shows. Netflix clearly sees its future as an online streaming content provider and is willing to invest in that future. The cost of its broadband use is part of the cost of its business model. The days when companies like Netflix presumed that consumer broadband providers would continue to shoulder the cost of buildout investment are over.
