Comcast, Netflix Partner Battle Over Fees

Comcast Corp. and Level 3 Communications, a key network partner of Netflix Inc., launched into a vicious public battle over fees Comcast is levying at Level 3 for delivering content such as movies to the cable company's customers. Level 3, which recently won a deal to help popular video streaming provider Netflix deliver its service to consumers, accused Comcast of charging unfair fees, which it said it agreed to pay "under protest" to avoid service disruption.
