If Netflix "throttled" you then you may be benefitting from a recent decision by the Superior Court of San Francisco.

According to Home Media Retailing, the online rental company will be "shelling out free-month passes to 5.5 million past and present subscribers."

In addition to this Netflix "will have to pay legal feels of $1.3 million to the class action attorneys who filed the suit, and $60,000 in other fees."

This suit initially came about because certain users of the online service "complained in September 2004 about the company's practice of 'throttling' high-volume renters down the queue for new releases."
