The Analysts Never Note Programming Content

Not once have the stock jocks noted the declining quality of cable TV programming. They seem to be mocking the consumer for sucking up the rate increases.

However, I think the consumer is starting to note the raunchy deal. More and more programming is crap reality shows (how many auction, pawn store, people digging through old stuff do we need?) and content that is low quality cheap nonsense.

It probably won't be the cost alone that will cause consumers to really question their cable bill because I think most are unwilling to part with watching TV. What will do it is when they're sitting in their chairs looking for something to watch and there isn't anything there but horrible programming laden with oppressive commercial loads that will make them cut the cord.

When South Park does a show about the bar being lowered in television programming, you know something is really wrong. The networks are doing it to themselves.

It's becoming more likely that horrible programming with oppressive commercial loads will be seen on the same day the bill comes. Todd Juenger thinks cable TV rate hikes are being "overblown" either because he's paid more than he's worth or doesn't actually pay a cable bill. The rate hikes for crap are unsustainable long term and the investors are starting to realize it.
