Comcast May Have Found a Major Net Neutrality Loophole


Comcast may have found a major loophole in the Federal Communication Commission’s network neutrality regulations.

Earlier this month the company launched a new streaming video service for Comcast broadband customers called Stream TV. The service, which is only available in the greater Boston and Chicago areas so far, allows you to watch HBO as well as live local television stations on your computer, tablet or laptop. The catch is that the service will only work from your home.

The story is too old to be commented.

Im so tired of these cable/satilite companies. I hope people start cutting cords and leave these monopolies behind.

It's not that big a deal really. They are grasping for straws. They know between Google Fiber, local municipal networks and 5G phone service in 3-5years they are on the way out. Add T-Mobile Binge On and they have to bow to that too. People are cutting cable and streaming makes it easy. T-Mobile is making streaming even more viable. They have no where else to go.

Die Comcast. Go gently into that good night.

This is why I avoid cable companies like the plague. They are so full of themselves beyond comparison that it's not even funny. Cable TV is a waste of time consideriing the literal fact being that cable tv sends you brainwashed into a consumer based frenzy where you believe every bit of nonsense the false mainstream media sends people.
