I wonder if Netflix implemented some sort of peer-casting feature that works in conjunction with the existing streaming if that would help at all. I know they would throttle that too, but it would still add more bandwidth since the data would come from multiple sources and each one would be throttled separately. Or maybe this is just a primitive view on the subject, since I am far from an expert on the topic of video streaming.
