Re: Lets face it
said by FFH:Respectfully, I would agree with you. The problem here, at the core, is that many people have lost the ability to entertain themselves. The only way the costs are going down, going down in fact, rather than simply being shifted around, is if people stop consuming the content and start entertaining themselves, not requiring someone else to entertain them for x number of hours a week. I don't see that happening anytime soon, so yes, people will cut the cable. Some will pay a bit less, others will pay almost nothing, and still others may pay a bit more, but the content and delivery industry wwill still have a huge pie to split.
will the total monthly cost to obtain content for the home really drop with these changes? I don't think so. Streaming may replace QAM cable feeds, but internet access costs will rise. You may be able to drop Cable TV, but you will be paying subscription fees to streaming providers... the content companies will STILL get their cut one way or another.
