Cable Exec: Future Distribution Deals May Embrace TV Everywhere

Cable Exec: Future Distribution Deals May Embrace TV Everywhere | Social TV is everywhere | Scoop.it

TV Everywhere deals for TV networks might be part of TV distribution deals in the future with cable, satellite and telco TV program package providers, says a Discovery Communications executive.  Brad Singer, senior executive vice president/CFO of Discovery Communications, commenting on a recent big TV media company/cable operator deal, says TV Everywhere components "appear to be going in an overall package." Speaking at the CitiCorp media conference, he cautions that each network and multichannel TV operator will have their own priorities.

Cable Operators Hold Keys To Entertainment Future

Consumers have come to expect relatively good deals for Web access. But as broadband becomes the primary focus for cable operators, those days are waning and significant annual cost hikes (with all kinds of usage caps) will become the norm. A teenager today very likely will find a broadband single-play in 2021 costs as much, or more, than a triple-play costs now. Maybe sooner.  It will be intriguing to watch for the inflection point when cable executives find themselves grappling with enough TV subscriber exodus to begin trying to win over Wall Street with an aggressive broadband-first – we-win no-matter-which-way-the-wind-blows -- position. (They can toss in the access business comes without having to pay huge carriage fees to networks.) That change in emphasis probably won’t come this year or next, but investor pressure might call for some change in tone sooner than planned.
