Netflix strikes streaming-traffic deal with AT&T too

Following recent deals with Comcast and Verizon, Netflix confirmed Tuesday that it has also reached an agreement with AT&T to provide a direct connection from the video service to broadband customers. The hoped-for result is less buffering and faster streaming for Netflix customers. […] The terms of the agreement were not revealed, but they’re likely similar to those of a “paid peering” deal Netflix struck with Comcast in February. For that deal, Netflix agreed to pay Comcast to directly connect its content delivery network to home broadband users who subscribe to Netflix. The video service came to a similar deal with Verizon in April. – Dara Kerr,CNET
