Default Where is TV headed?

Are the cable companies on their way out with Netflix and the other competitors growing so much?

I think ultimately, they will have to adjust but we are still 10 or 15 years away from that.

The crazy thing is, Qualk talked about this on his show the last couple of weeks.

Just read an article that says one sticky point right now for those who have cut the cable/satellite cord is real time news. Supposedly the cable news companies have been forced to agree to limit their streaming in order to get financially favorable terms from the cable/sat providers. I haven't stopped the TV service yet, so I can't say. But supposedly if you are trying to stream CNN or FNC for something live going on, the channels are supposed to block you if you don't have TV.

Which makes me wonder if the 4G/5G mobile technologies have a huge incentive to get speeds and reliability up fast.

I know a lot of the younger generation lives on NetFlix now (my daughter certainly does).

If sports start moving to these other options it will get interesting

My oldest does the same thing. I also see a lot of my kids friends (Xbox & PS accounts) that live on the Hulu and YouTube for their entertainment needs.

Sports has already begun the move, that Sling product by DISH is something I see targeting the 20 to 30 yr old male demographic as the alternative Sports Channel package.

I know a ton of the more youthful era lives on NetFlix now (my girl absolutely does).

In the event that games begin moving to these different alternatives it will get fascinating
