Re: Smart
Although I'm not a gamer, it's curious to me that the part of the industry have held such strength for so many years. Amazon bought live streaming Twitch, while Google plans to launch big time gaming on YouTube this summer. So, of course if the market stays strong it would certainly make sense for Comcanst and others to capture some of the money as well.

Re: Smart
How would they prioritize traffic under the NN rules to shorten latency?

Re: Smart
I wonder if Comcast will start selling a "gamer" Internet connection with better latency times? Who cares if you have a 50+ Mbps connection if it's always laggy in the middle of your favorite game?

Smart
This streaming service is smart for both EA and Comcast. For Comcast, it's all about gaining revenue that's not related to cable subcriptions, which are in decline.

For EA, this is really smart because I think gamers get tired of the constant cycle of sports games from year to year that cost upwards of $50 annually. Games as a service makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
