Netflix and Comcast will be available on the same cable box later this year, but Netflix video will still count against Comcast data caps.
Netflix's deal to get its online video on Comcast's X1 set-top boxes alongside traditional cable TV channels was reported earlier this month by Recode, with the companies saying they "have much work to do before the service will be available to consumers later this year." The deal raised questions about whether Netflix would be exempt from Comcast data caps, but it has already been decided.

For example, people will often do favors for others when there is no expectation of a personal reward—or without even bothering to think about whether there might be a reward.
A recent study published in PNAS presents evidence that humans may engage in these types of uncalculating cooperative activities because it helps their reputation.
