Goes around, comes around
This reminds me of the deals musicians, TV actors, and movie actors signed in the pre-digital era. Digital distribution was not covered for royalties, so performers weren't (arent) getting any. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and it's hard to feel any sympathy.

TOP US Cable Companies
If the subscribers are being reported through HovSat?  How is it that HovSat is not listed as one of the top providers in the US in terms of subscriber counts?!?  Or at the very least, being mentioned as a disruptor or game changer in the industry for this record breaking growth and consumer-cost saving offering?!?

Good Omniverese reporting, badly needed
Thank you, Jeff, for digging into the Omniverse story. The TV/media industry needs a good journalist to contact the key parties and get their stories.  Well done.

Use of the DMA term
Haven't heard back from Nielsen, but a source from the cable industry says he recalls using the term DMA since at least the mid-1980s, so that certainly contradicts  one of the arguments being made here. OTT, though... i don't recall that really being used much until around 2004 or so. JB
