Will Netflix UK herald access fees on the UK networks?

The problem with Netflix in the UK is hat there’s barely enough room for all that iPlayer streaming. The UK networks are already screaming at the BBC for a carriage charge, what’s going to happen when Netflix (which takes up some 30% of US internet traffic) gets some real traction on this side of the Atlantic?

Netflix is hardly likely to want to see operators charging more money to consumers to access it’s service. If anything, Netflix is likely to want a cut. But then, if Netflix 3G usage skyrockets over the next few months, it won’t be long before we see operator CEOs bleating about wanting Netflix to pay access fees to them.
