Cord Cutting Debate Takes Center Stage at UBS Conference - The Hollywood Reporter
"Mark Cuban predicts success of Netflix and others will be short-lived as pay TV providers expand offers. "
Krikorian agreed and said that the content companies would also help put the genie back in the bottle by ensuring there is no free content available online and all Web content gets authenticated, so as to make it available to pay TV subscribers only. But he blamed TV distributors for having failed to meet consumer needs.

verizon ceo actually recognizes that people want to cut the cord

Verizon ceo actually recognizes that people want to cut the cord

from the good-for-him dept:

while many in the tv business were recently patting themselves on the back in pretending that tv had "beaten" the internet, and people weren't interested in dumping their expensive cable plans, at least some folks are recognizing where things are headed. Verizon ceo ivan seidenberg, who has always been more of a straight shooter than some other execs in the industry, is admitting the obvious:
"...young people are pretty smart. They're not going to pay for something they don't need to."

such a simple sentence, and yet one that so many people are in denial about.

And, us older folks are pretty saavy too. We also remember when FREE TV was the ONLY way to get TV.
