Netflix, Inc. (NFLX) Signs Deal With AT&T Inc. (T) to Improve Viewing Experience

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has been waging a war against companies like AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) in the past against the fees the internet service providers ask for when they stream content to Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) users. So, it comes as a surprise when Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) signed a deal to pay AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) for smoother delivery of its content to users, which Reuters reported in an article.

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX)

The deal was reportedly signed in May, but the financial terms of the deal have been kept a secret. Earlier, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) had asked the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to review the issues related to internet providers asking for a fee to stream its content smoothly to users, which  Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has deemed as ‘tolls’.

Both, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) and AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) are now working on building out new network connections for Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX)’s content to be delivered directly to AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T)’s servers. This is the third such deal that Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) has signed with a major U.S. based internet service provider, the other two were with Verizon Communications Inc.(NYSE:VZ) in April and Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) in February.
