Netflix's success turns net neutrality into an afterthought

Print | Front Page | Email this story

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Netflix once fought fiercely for net neutrality, fearing that its online video service would suffer if internet providers were free to discriminate against it.

But now that it boasts one of television's largest audiences, Netflix isn't spending much time worrying about the demise of government rules that once protected it.

Millions of subscribers are still flocking to its service. Netflix figures internet providers are unlikely to do anything that might alienate vast numbers of their own customers who also turn to Netflix for trendy shows such as "Stranger Things."

Netflix's latest earnings report, released Monday, underscores its growing popularity. The service now has more than 117 million worldwide subscribers, and topped analyst estimates by adding 8.3 million customers during the final three months of last year.
