Verizon threatens to sue Netflix in war of words over video quality

John Ribeiro | June 6, 2014
Verizon Communications has threatened to sue Netflix after the video streaming company started displaying error messages that blamed Verizon for low-quality video streams.

Young said in his blog post that the current dispute between Netflix and Verizon had been "conflated" with the net neutrality issue. The war of words between the two companies will likely increase, though Verizon is threatening to take the dispute to court as well.

Besides asking Netflix to cease and desist from further providing the notices to its customers, Verizon has threatened legal action if Netflix does not provide a list of its customers on the Verizon network to whom it has delivered the messages along with the date and time of display and the "purported substantiation" for the message.
