Netflix Warns Regulator Not to Tax Canadian Streaming Service – Hollywood Reporter

“The imposition of a ‘Netflix tax’ or ‘OTT Tax’ may make it more difficult for Netflix to offer access to this content at the same affordable rate,” Corie Wright, director of global public policy at Netflix, told the [Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission] in an 11-page submission filed on June 27, 2014. […] So slapping a tax on Netflix Canada “might translate into an increase in price without … a commensurate benefit for Canadian content, its producers, or Canadian consumers,” the Netflix submission argued. – Etan Vlessing, The Hollywood Reporter
