    Re: Re: Your Analysis and Thinking is FLAWED

    Dear Coward,
    Here in NYC you ONLY HAVE ONE CHOICE for broadband, either TWC, Fios, or RCN. All landlords let ONE provider in to get exclusivity $$$$, the consumer is trapped with no competition and no choice of provider.

    Add in PayTV bundle and broadband- take a look at Craig Moffett's analysis on a clear trend of decling PayTV subs and the growth in Retransmission fees means cable broadband is now subidizing PayTV.

    Give up the Ghost- broadcast networks need to change and adpat to free markets like OTT services or they will be replced by other co9ntent.

    The younger genration is not buying PayTV !

    Re: PayTV is a Great American Scam- Give up the GHOST

    Broadcasters sitting on Free Airwaves=No Innovation the past 40 years. Can anyone point to innovation by the Broadcasters?

    Broadcasters retransmission fees have grown from $230M in 2006 to $3B in 2012 and predicted growth to $6B by 2017, yet PayTV subs are declining.
    The simple fact is cable broadband subscribers are now subsidizing the PayTV bundle and retransmission fees!
    Broadcasters business model built on corporate lobbying and subsidies are not in the consumer's interest. Broadcasters fear Free Markets. What say you?
