Quotable

“There remains no obvious floor for traditional video distribution; whatever sports and news floor there might be for cable network programming – and we’re no longer confident even of that – that’s a need that can easily be met by vMVPDs, which despite spiraling prices are still cheaper than most cable alternatives. That is not to say, however, that there is no possible role for cable operators in video distribution. There is an obvious consumer demand for an aggregator of aggregators… it must also be conceded that this ‘aggregator of aggregators’ white space is so glaringly obvious that there are a staggering number of pretenders to the throne. Cable operators might arguably be best positioned to capture the opportunity… but they will face, in the tech giants, formidable competitors with much greater scale and much deeper pockets.”
