Re: Stormageddon, LR style
I don't think making money off of people's video consumption will ever really be a problem, no matter what incarnation it takes.

The cable operator business is changing, no doubt. Ironically, the underlying metrics are changing for the better as operators move away from high-revenue, low-margin conventional video to mid-revenue, high-margin broadband service. Maybe big pipes aren't so dumb after all.

Re: Stormageddon, LR style
I'm the same. Cut the cord and never looked back. When I tinkered with the recent Sling TV preview, I found watching live TV with ads included to be incredibly foreign and annoying.

Amusingly Leictman has long insisted the cord cutting phenomenon wasn't real. Now that the data pretty clear shows it's real (if slow), he goes out of his way to try and insist it's insignificant with the commentary tacked on to the tale end of each one of these reports. One wonders what he'll say when the trickle turns into a river...

Re: Stormageddon, LR style
The pay television market just doesn't look so good. People don't want to pay for the exorbitant costs of cable anymore. I prefer Netflix, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

I enjoy the OTT headlines on the video stories. Video service providers can be counted on to hemhorrage subscribers, pile up losses, and have the business sky fall down on them every three months. The actual arithmetic is far less compelling.
