UPDATE 04/18/15 : Finally, Verizon is the first of the cable service providers to offer less expensive "slimmer" service bundles, which come closer to letting consumers pay only for channels they watch.

UPDATE 08/31/15 : Nice piece from the Washington Post about some significant changes at Netflix. Netflix continues to turn itself gradually into something else... and changes an industry in its wake.
