    As an consumer with already pitiful broadband choices, I hope they don't. A merger between America's most hated company and the one that probably would be most hated if they had Comcast's scale? Kill me now.

    I like my NFLX...this move would be very bad for consumers, likely much much worse than the proposed AT&T - T Mobile merger.
