ha If she has actually used Go90 I bet she wouldn't have cut the cord and wouldn't be bullish on it.

Re: Yeah, well... Though on the plus side Verizon execs historically have had their heads less in the sand than other industry executives. They've admitted cord cutting is real and is something they need to adapt to for years, compared to countless execs who think that if you just pretend something isn't reall, you won't have to change the way you do business.

 

Still, the exec in charge of Verizon's TV business admitting she no longer thinks the TV business is relevant (more or less) is pretty damn funny.

Re: Yeah, well... Agreed. Really a bad sign when the head of a service doesn't use their own service.

Re: Yeah, well... Very true, although Comcast still seems to be making margins on the video side. Not as much as they once did, but they are still very committed to the video business. Looks like we'll end up with a handful of companies that are.

Yeah, well... Video service providers would be much less ambivalent toward conventional video bundles if the margins were better. Still, the statement is more than a little jarring. Almost like having a CXO from Shake Shack declaring she's a vegan.
