Netflix uses CDNs for content delivery and the platform runs in EC2. What would peering with them achieve?

Which leads to a question to be asked...

Is netflix willing to peer directly with ISP / NSP's ?

Yeah, that's an interesting one. We currently utilize netflow for this, but you also need to consider that netflix 
streaming is just port 80 www traffic. Because netflix uses CDNs, its difficult to pin down the traffic to 
specific hosts in the CDN and say that this traffic was netflix, while this traffic was the latest windows update 
(remember this is often a shared hosting platform). We've done our own testing and have come to a good solution 
which uses a combination of nbar, packet marking, and netflow to come to a conclusion. On a ~160Mbps link, netflix 
peaks out between 30-50Mbps around 8-10PM each evening. The rest of the traffic is predominantly other forms of 
HTTP traffic (including other video streaming services).

Also checkout Adrian Cockcroft presentations on their architecture which
describes how they use aws and CDns etc
