On Wednesday, during the Merrill Lynch Media, Communications & Entertainment conference in Los Angeles, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said about Canadian Internet providers, that "It’s almost a human rights violation what they’re charging for internet access in Canada."

Sarandos was referring to the low broadband caps in place at Canadian ISPs like Bell and Shaw, which force their customers to pay more if they exceed monthly caps that can start at just 15 GB. Netflix has sharply criticized broadband pricing in Canada before, with CEO Reed Hastings calling caps and overage fees like these “grossly overpriced."
