The Justice Department has reportedly launched a broad antitrust investigation into whether cable companies are acting improperly to suppress competition from online video. DoJ officials have spoken to several online video providers, including Netflix (NFLX), and are said to have questioned Comcast (CMCSA), Time Warner Cable (TWC) and others about issues like data caps.

    I had cable TV for three months. Never again. A waste of money.

    Free ride? You have to pay for NFLX. If you don't subscribe to an internet video content provider you have to subscribe to a cable company and then to see non-commercial content pay additionally for movies like HBO or STARZ. I don't like commercials. Nothing is free.
