    I bet Netflix ended up on that list just so the acronym doesn't read like ... :hip:
    But seriously, how much power does Netflix have compared to the others?

    Also, Microsoft didn't make it into that list? How come?

    Because at this point, Microsoft are the good guys. That's how far standards have fallen.

    Also, MS has been pretty heavily defanged(no pun intended) by the smartphone revolution. One needs look no farther than Edge usage estimates to see how much clout they wield.
