hello Comcast conquers Netflix

From the Wall Street Journal:

Netflix Inc. has agreed to pay Comcast Corp. to ensure Netflix movies and TV shows stream smoothly to Comcast customers, a landmark agreement that could set a precedent for Netflix’s dealings with other broadband providers, people familiar with the situation said.

This sets a dangerous precedent, but I doubt Netflix had any alternatives based on this:

Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings decided to strike the deal after Netflix saw a deterioration in streaming speeds for Comcast subscribers. According to Netflix data published in January, the average speeds of Netflix’s prime-time streams to Comcast subscribers had dropped 27% since October. Mr. Hastings didn’t want streaming speeds to deteriorate further and become a bigger issue for customers, the people said.
