Netflix’s CEO Is Trying To Use Net Neutrality To Deflect The Real Issue, Competition | Dan Rayburn –

“On Sunday, Netflix’s CEO took to his Facebook page to complain that Comcast isn’t being fair when it comes to net neutrality principles. His argument is that Comcast’s Xfinity TV streaming app on the Xbox 360 doesn’t count towards consumers monthly bandwidth cap, yet services like Netflix and Hulu do. While it’s a nice try on his part to drag net neutrality in the subject and get people all worked up, he’s simply trying to deflect away from the real issue at hand, which is the competition Netflix is facing from Comcast and others.”

After he delivered the second day keynote for the recent Streaming Media West conference in Los Angeles, Matt Strauss, senior vice president and general manager for Comcast Interactive Media, sat down for a red carpet interview to discuss the online and mobile properties that make up Comcast Xfinity. His team relaunched the Xfinity site shortly before the conference.


‘We think that we’re at this moment where the lines are getting blurred between what is an app and what is a website, and we wanted to take all the learnings we got from the app and apply them to the web, which is why we relaunched our website a few weeks ago in HTML5,’ said Strauss.”
