    Default The Appalachian Trail Documentary is on Netflix

    Netflix subscribers- sorry if I'm late with this, but a National Geographic documentary on the AT is available on Netflix for streaming. I just happened to come across it. The name is simply "Appalachian Trail".

    And now back to watching...

    I watched it about 6 months ago and then again 2 weeks ago.

    It was decent. But it got side tracked a bit (the part about acid rain etc).

    It was okay, but coulda talked more about the trail

    Cool, Thanks for the heads up Jump Master Blaster. And on a different note. Anyone having problems streaming these days, seems all I do anymore is refresh and write reports.

    When I watch online stuff, I usually press 'play' to get it loading. then pause it right away for about 2minutes. that way its loading ahead of me

    Watching streaming right now, no issue. Could your internet connection be slow?

    There are also AT, PCT and JMT videos on Amazon streaming.

    I like Squatch's Fiip Flop Flipping...

    I saw that too. Man, that trail is a beauty- wide open spaces and vistas. Maybe someday...but I still have to tackle this thing in my "backyard".

    that page is monthly. I think that was the average speeds for May.
    -2 means it is 5th fastest provider now. It was 3rd fastest the month before... So your netflix speed with comcast has slowed between april/may.

    (But I think Netflix just paid comcast a ton of money a few weeks ago to "speed up" the netflix speeds.)

    this is what the whole "net neutrality" argument going on right now is about. Big internet providers are "slowing" speeds to certain websites and bullying them into paying to raise the speed for those sites. (comcast was slowing connection to people who downloaded from netflix, til netflix said "heres money. please let them watch us at fast speeds")

    **Edit** I know I wasnt being 100% accurate. Just "generally" speaking with example

    Please remember that the "Big Internet Providers" are the ones who actually own the physical networks that Netflix wants to use for free to distribute their product.

    Unfortunately, building these networks is not free and Netflix sucks up a huge amount of bandwidth - 5 gigs for a feature length film - so why should they get a free ride?

    I don't want to make this an argument for/against net neutrality. But since you asked I will just say my point.

    Netflix CAN afford to pay providers millions and millions of dollars to "speed up" access.

    But how can a new guy get off the ground? How can a start-up or smaller company compete and pay enormous fees?

    (I know since we are the watchers, it doesn't affect us as much, but still.....)

    I don't know, but it's not fair to nationalize one person's property to help another, even if the ends seem to justify the means.

    Let netflix users pay a fair price for the burden they place on the net.
