Netflix won’t even begin talks for their cache if you're not doing a minimum of 5Gbps. They also require massive uploads to the cache often, these are things are 200TB now if I recall and they send everything unlike the transparent who only grab what's already being consumed.

Those will probably not help a lot with https: data, as a properly encrypted stream is very close to random bits and thus not very compressible.

As others have noted, your best chances are getting content providers to give you a local cache of their most popular content.
