If my ISP, Sky, owned by Comcast, were to prioritise their own streaming service NowTV over Netflix, people would just move to another ISP that gave better Netflix performance. So they don’t, and also NowTV has to compete on price and content over Netflix and Amazon Prime.

In the US, if you are with Comcast, you likely don’t have any other choice.
