  • Netflix Now Says It Didn’t Actually Want FCC to Regulate Broadband So Heavily | Variety about 6 hours ago
    • On Wednesday, Netflix chief financial officer David Wells, speaking at the 2015 Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, said the company wasn’t happy with the FCC move. He said that, while the streaming-video company wanted to see “strong” net neutrality measures to ensure content providers would be protected against ISPs charging arbitrary interconnection fees, Netflix would have preferred a lighter regulatory touch.
    • Netflix’s previous advocacy of regulating broadband under Title II regs was nuanced. It had said the FCC could use Title II as a way to adopt net-neutrality protections that were previously struck down in federal court, but that the agency could stop short of using “overreaching regulation” and that it “could go further only in the face of truly troubling actions on the part of Internet access.”
  • HBO In Talks With Apple To Be Launch Partner For Coming Web Service 'HBO Now': Exclusive about 6 hours ago

    • Some cable providers, however, such as Cablevision and Cox Communications, have expressed interest in bundling HBO Now with broadband for their own subscribers who don’t get cable TV.

  • FCC Republicans launch last-ditch effort to sink net neutrality plan | Ars Technica on Feb 23, 15
    • Republican Commissioners Ajit Pai and Michael O'Rielly want the commission to break with past practice by releasing the entire proposal before the vote. Typically, the FCC releases a summary of the proposal but not the entire document until after it votes on it.
    • In accordance with long-standing FCC process followed in both Democratic and Republican administrations, Chairman Wheeler circulated his proposal to his fellow Commissioners for review three weeks before the scheduled vote. The Chairman has seriously considered all input he has received on this important matter, including feedback from his FCC colleagues.”
    • Copps wrote on Twitter that Pai and O'Rielly are "way off base" in the comparison to the 2003 media ownership rules. The FCC's record in the current net neutrality proceeding is far more extensive than the "vacuous media ownership decision from 2003 that @FCC voted on and [a] court rejected as totally inadequate," he wrote.

    • Twitter notes Wheeler’s proposed use of Title II of the Communications Act to ground net neutrality rules, and then endorses the proposed impact of the rules, and not their legal foundation
    • Parsing aside, Twitter did the FCC a solid today by writing its post — each time an innovative Internet company comes out publicly in favor of net neutrality, it undercuts the argument promulgated by opponents of the regulatory concept that business will be stifled by the introduction of open Internet rules.
  • Musicians Tell FCC Chairman: We’ll Defend You on Net Neutrality | Variety on Feb 23, 15
    • In a letter sent to Wheeler, dozens of musicians wrote in their letter that “there is a public interest imperative in preserving an open Internet and the creative sector is a huge part of this interest.”
