people are cutting the cord not because of the delivery mechanism i.e. they dont care whether the channels are delivered over cable, satellite, the cloud, etc. its the inflated prices driven by bundling of channels they dont need. i want sports but i dont want lifetime or vice versa. why is youtube going back to cable? they can deny it, but its going in the direction of the old cable model that people are dumping. if you can make cars drive themselves and magically (creepily) serve up ads relevant to something mentioned in last nights dinner conversation, figure out how to give me the channels relevant to me without the stuff i dont and without the inflated prices.
