Cheap digital TV packages are cannibals — and could push traditional TV to its worst subscriber losses on record

The analysts also said it’s hurting the ability of pay-TV companies to charge high rates (their “pricing power”). If you are a pay-TV operator, especially one that doesn’t own one of the upstarts, that’s bad news for you. – Nathan McAlone, Business Insider
