Ah Cable and Satellite you’ve been good to us…and we’ve been really good to you.  You’ve made billions by providing us with a terrific 1900’s technology.  Well we are now in the 2000s and it’s time to find better because that’s what us humans do…we find better.  What is better?  IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) is continuing to take over and will be the future.

Cable and Satellite Futures

In 2023 it’s estimated that pay TV will have about 72.7 million subscribers, down from 100.5 million in 2015.  Just in the 2nd quarter of 2019 pay TV lost 1.53 million subscribers.  The vendors are making adjustments but the only ones that will survive are those that have an ISP service.  These vendors are migrating their revenues from cable subscriptions to internet subscriptions.  That’s great news for us!  More competition in this space leads to decreased prices for consumers…the old “Supply and Demand” philosophy.
