Re: One huge threat to cord cutting!
They have to remember that a lot of people aren't cutting the cord because they have other things to do with their time or that there are other video options available out there.. MANY people are cutting the cord because they simply can't afford the price tag of this service..
So I laugh at Ivan when he talks about "value" because he, who has millions in the bank, has no clue what value of the common man is.
While they KNOW the phrase "the economy is weak".. I think they don't really understand what that means to people - or they'd find a way to survive on less money themselves, for one, stop raising the price.. and realize that if they DID cut the prices, they'd see less HIGHER paying customers but far more smaller paying customers.. ie: quantity vs quality customers.
They'll never get it - they're obviously "not as smart as young people" are.. so they'll just find new ways to get more money out of the remaining customers willing to pay the higher and higher bills, the same was as a politician will continue to find more ways to tax more money out of the remaining work force in order to prop up those who aren't working.
Anyone else see a trend/pattern here?
They really CAN drop the prices, some.. it will cause the industry to slow down a little, which to be honest, is fine! The entire country NEEDS to slow down anyway.. it's way too inflated in MANY areas and can't sustain the growth path it was on.. we need to go through some period of devaluation and come back to reality.
I wonder just how many people will subscribe to, and "find value" in basic cable when the price hits the "low low price of $99.99 a month!" ON the trend/path they're all heading, that should be with in about 10 years.
