"Even if broadband providers had an incentive to degrade their customers' online experience in some circumstances, they have no practical ability to act on such an incentive. Today's Internet ecosystem is dominated by a number of "hyper-giants" with growing power over key aspects of the Internet experience—including Google in search, Netflix and Google (YouTube) in online video, Amazon and eBay in e-commerce, and Facebook in social media. If a broadband provider were to approach one of these hyper-giants and threaten to block or degrade access to its site if it refused to pay a significant fee, such a strategy almost certainly would be self-defeating, in light of the immediately hostile reaction of consumers to such conduct. Indeed, it is more likely that these large edge providers would seek to extract payment from ISPs for delivery of video over last-mile networks."

Larger carriers aside, Patison is buoyed by the gains MAVTV is making with smaller distributors: "The added growth of NCTC, NRTC and NTTC members is very encouraging as we expand our motorsports and automotive programming within America’s heartland.  Coinciding with the expansion of our distribution, is the addition of exciting new programming, including The Dave Despain Show , Speed Sport and Speed Sport Magazine , hosted by Ralph Sheheen in partnership with National Speed Sports News .”"
