What do you think about Comcast trying to block netflix from online movies?

Comcast wants to charge people for watching online movies through Netflix. I would be rather pissed off since I have Comcast & our family uses Netflix online all the time.

 If you also use both netflix & comcast & would like to sign a petition against it, please do so here;

sorry that it is a "bold progressive" site...

  • thats just messed up! I am paying comcast to put cable in my home & to have cable channels... i am paying netflix to watch movies (through my xbox, wii, computer, dvd, computer)...
    I would be charged double for 1 service if this was to take effect..
    Id simply drop comcast...and find something else...Netflix should fight this...

  • It is comcasts choice. as it should be. Open up competition.

    Comcast cant make money off of someone else's service! Isn't that piracy? If I tried to do that, I'd be treated like a criminal.

  • You do realize you internet costs will go up dramatically and the government will then have the reigns on what you can and can't get if this passes. No better way to control than this.

  • I reposted your links on my Facebook page, because I have a lot of family and friends who still have Comcast, and many of them also use Netflix. They are probably ust picking on Netflix for openly supporting net neutrality. Unfortunately most of the other ISPs are against net neutrality too. Thanks for posting this!

  • Comcast will block netflix & other online streaming sites if you do not pay the charge...

  • I don't have Comcast anymore, but the other cable companies are just as bad as they are. They are basically monopolies--within each of their regions anyway. I'll give you a bump. :-)
