Netflix thrilled with net neutrality decision, but pay-TV operators aren't

Reactions were decidedly mixed over the D.C. Circuit Court's decision on Tuesday to uphold the FCC's net neutrality laws. While Netflix applauded the ruling in a brief statement, other video industry organizations were not so sure.

The NCTA, for example, said it was "disappointed" with the result and said that meaningful legislation needs to be crafted. The ACA was equally unhappy, with President and CEO Matt Polka saying that "ACA members have been strongly opposed to being subject to onerous Title II rules to achieve this goal, which would impose unnecessary and significant costs."
