    Default Price Points: Pay TV Risks Losing Gen Y

    From The Article:
    If basic cable programmers are in fear of losing young customers due to soaring cable subscription prices, premium-priced pay television programmers could be at greater risk.

    A new study says pay TV programmers are at risk of losing young TV viewers/consumers 18-29 -- so-called Generation Ys, about 70 million strong -- due to growing price sensitivities for all kinds of subscription television. Pay-TV networks monthly prices are added on top of existing packages for basic cable programming channels.

    A study by independent research group for Ideas & Solutions!, a marketing consultancy, says 69% of the on-the-fence young cable customers, classified as "at-risk" responders, and 61% of those described as "leaners," say the expense of pay-TV networks is the main reason they would consider discontinuing their service.

    I'm waiting for the day when cable *lowers* their pricing. I want to see the premium channels cut back. It's just insane what HBO and Showtime charge.
