If it's Verizon, it's an ISP, and everybody know those are bad.
But with Netflix, actively engaging again net neutrality and asking DRM in HTTP, it is also bad.
So, the public is victim of two would-be/actual monopolists.
The solution, I think, is no streaming.
On a side note, video is really overrated.
Days are only 24 hours, you use a few sleeping, you have better things to do than watching movies the rest of the time.
