Cable Companies Signed Their Own Death Warrant

January 31, 2017

I bet many cable companies are high-fiving right now, thinking they can continue to milk less-than-savvy consumers for cable box rental fees in perpetuity. 

 

Monopolies are funny.  I'm sure we thought at Microsoft that Windows licensing would also never crater, when in actuality an orthogonal competitor (mobile device OSes that were, in essence, free) turned the share of internet-connected devices away from Microsoft's favor pretty precipitously.

 

Comcast et al should be rushing towards open platforms and building services that these third party manufacturers can run so that they have any hope of relevance in the future.
