Cable Convention to Eye ‘Cord-Cutting’

Mar 31, 2009  •  Post A Comment

“Cord-cutting,” or the phenomenon of consumers canceling their cable and satellite service because they can watch free shows on site such as Hulu, is likely to be the focus of this year’s National Cable Show, Dow Jones reports. The conference, which begins Wednesday, comes as cable shares have declined an average of 31% since the last cable conference in May, the news agency says. Attendance is likely to be 20% lower than last year’s conference, TVWeek reports, citing the National Cable & Telecommunications Association.

  1. They produce abysmal shows in a flagrant attempt to inflate their profits, now they’re crying that people won’t make them rich by watching this insulting dross.
    And they’re so eager to find a solution, large swathes of these ‘victims’ don’t even show up??
    If you feed your customers gruel, don’t be surprised if they don’t ask for more.
