Verizon Netflix battle: Verizon won't take the blame for slow streaming

Everyone is rushing to Netflix this weekend to watch the show "Orange is the New Black." Some people are having trouble with their streaming speed. On Thursday, MSN shared that Verizon doesn't want to take the blame for the slow streaming and is telling Netflix to stop blaming it on them.

Netflix actually started sharing a message on the screen saying that it was Verizon's fault basically. This comes up when a show is buffering. Netflix spoke out saying, "This is about consumers not getting what they paid for from their broadband provider. We are trying to provide more transparency, just like we do with the ISP Speed Index, and Verizon is trying to shut down that discussion."

Verizon is not happy about this notice at all. They feel like it is not their fault but actually the fault of Netflix that people are getting a buffering notice. The drama between these two companies has been going on for a while now. They will have to come up with a decision to make the customers happy though and sending the blame to someone else is not always the best way to do it.
