CHARTER’S INDUSTRY-LEADING COMMITMENT TO ONLINE VIDEO
Charter is a different type of cable company-committed to offering the most innovative products, faster internet speeds at a great value, an open internet and superior customer service. While other cable providers have tried to stem the tide of online video, Charter embraces streaming sites and OTT content-reflected by our existing policies and future commitments.
New Charter will continue Charter’s commitment to an open Internet-so our customers can continue enjoying data-hungry apps and HD-video streaming
Charter has fostered a good reputation with leading Internet video companies, with industry leaders such as Netflix and Cogent supporting the transaction.
Charter’s commitment to no data caps or usage-based billing means our customers are not punished for streaming online video.
New Charter will not block or slow down Internet traffic or engage in paid prioritization-the same commitment already followed by Charter today.

Charter’s commitment to HD-video streaming is supported by our investments in innovation and infrastructure:
An all-digital network, which allowed us to quadruple broadband speeds in two years; 60 Mbps is the slowest broadband tier we offer.
We will continue to invest in interconnection capacity to avoid network congestion.
A first-of-its-kind cloud-based video guide, which enables intuitive search and discovery across TV, online video and apps designed to work on new and old cable boxes.
A TV app which allows customers to watch over 170 channels on their tablet or smartphone in the home, program their DVR, and even stream or download shows and movies to watch their favorite content whenever and wherever they want.

Leading online video providers support the Charter-Time Warner-Bright House transaction because of New Charter’s commitments to online video:
Some of the loudest critics of the Comcast deal, like Netflix, have come out in support of Charter’s takeover bid. Reed Hastings, Netflix’s chief executive, said this week that it would be a ‘tremendous positive’ for the streaming industry because of Charter’s agreement to a ‘multiyear, strong net neutrality policy’ across its new, bigger footprint.” (Emily Steel and Cecilia Kang, “Cable Acquisitions by Charter Communications Face Rising Opposition,” The New York Times, 1/21/16)
