There's too much revisionist history in the Boss's statement for my tolerance. Boss- "First they take our subscribers now they're forcing to upgrade our equipment... well fuck em!" First they had subscribers, then Netflix introduced the online version of their service (circa 2008) bringing in more subscribers, then Xfinity got added (circa 2010) offering the speeds demonstrated by Netflix carried by Comcast but with a selection of Comcast's cable offerings. fast forward a few years and Netflix is still the better offering so Comcast strategically decides to upgrade in ways that improve Xfinity on-demand services without accepting offers from Netflix to likewise maintain the quality of service Netflix customers experienced in the past and presumably would still get to experience if the dollars spent on monthly connection fees to Comcast actually went into improving total network quality instead of just promoting Xfinity services. It would be nice if it were just friendly competition going on, but it's Comcast trying to cut in on the streaming market after Netflix showed it was profitable.

When a toll road sells 10.000 people a monthly pass for a lane each, and then offers up to 5 lanes at a time during peak hours due to "maintenance", and yet has another 9,995 lanes constructed, uncluttered, and for sale in advertisements to other bidders I would certainly complain.

As the trials of life continue to take their toll, remember that there is always a future in Computer Maintenance. -- National Lampoon, "Deteriorata"
