Re: Why should TV providers fight content owners anymore?
said by jc100:
Customers might as well just go to netflix or hulu. Truly, the only stranglehold that cable has is Sports.
Networks are getting greedy, cable companies rightfully don't want to raise rates, and the customer gets screwed in the end.
OTA / Hulu / Netflix / Aero
The customers can blame THESELVES. Dish Network tried to fight the good fight with AMC last year. After 4 months that had to relent because of the large lost of customers. Then people complain when their TV providers give in to the content companies. Everyone wants everything but no one wants to sacrifice to get it. This is why cord cutting is still really low. People talk about it, but in the end chicken out because they can't do without their precious reality TV crap. If people actually sacrificed in 6 months you'd see HUGE changes and these changes could have happens YEARS ago but nope no one wants to earn anything.
This is due to the simple fact that most customers dont understand what carriage fees are. They believe the MSO is simply dropping the channel.
Then when the channel suddenly reappears, they wonder why their bill went up.
