They also say they will come with subtitles which makes it less likely they will be available same as in the US. Unless they are I see no way this will get many subscribers. If they simply mean that they will be available same as on Canal+ etc then I predict a huge fail.
What do you mean by "They also say they will come with subtitles which makes it less likely they will be available same as in the US. "?
Same time? They said they will be available next day in Europe. So Game of Thrones Sunday in the US, Monday in the EU.
There are rules about closed captioning in the US, so the texts are available, its just because nobody has cared before.

High speed yes. Net neutrality laws - not a one.
