I would guess Vincent got that number from the streamlined skinny bundles coming via OTT pricings....but doesn't account for those cord cutting who circumvent the bundler altogether and grab a select their few channels they actually watch directly from the content providers.
LOL I've addressed it several times. ....Disney made the mistake of indicating it may soon circumvent the bundler and did more damage to their share price than the bundler who would be the one to suffer the most. CBS talking head said their margins are better over direct streaming vs. bundled. "nobody is going to give unique content in demand away for free" REALLY? The majors have been doing so over broadcast for decades. Surely you're old enough to recall the days of bunny ears or the old VHF/UHF antennas that pulled in the major broadcast that can now be done with an HD antenna. Tell me again nobody is going to give away unique content for free. ROFLMAO
The battle is reverting back to the unique content with many trying to figure out the angle for digital advertising.....and why VZ bought the AOL remnant - streaming ad company. Bandwidth finally giving others like MLB, NHL, NBA, et al the ability to bypass the bundler because the pipe is getting big enough to stream video AND Title II prevents the pipe owner from discriminatory acts.
TMUS move is just the spearhead of wireless ISP moving to a TV platform offering that is not data restrictive. OTTs here 'we' come.....
Not imaginary. I have given to thumbs votes and very RARELY bother. I would expect even thumbs down by longs given your focus on my vacation isn't really on topic here. Typical klown act at the circus.
It's not misinformation nor wild speculation. You klown's don't see the forest through the trees.
"Note, though, that because Binge On automatically compresses the video to 480p, an unlimited data customer might want to skip the feature in order to access high-quality streams."
~T-Mobile's video free-for-all: Everything you need to know about Binge On (FAQ)
LTE-A has the capacity where it has been deployed by TMUS. The Binge On is TMUS' means to bring a national platform offering the video bundle delivery where there isn't the LTE-A deployment. The real takeaway here is the fight for video on mobile pipes has begun with the throw down being without data restriction. What is VZ going to launch as a competitive product as it rolls out 5G infrastructure? As simple as I can put it, DTV's monopolistic barrier to entry is COLLAPSING in the wireless market and TMUS is the first out of the gate. This is about a year and a half earlier than I expected. There is a reason to blow way past your 480p focus. TMUS has capable networks in 23 of 25 of the largest U.S. markets by EOY.....
My response was posted something like 5 hours ago but you Klowns ignored it. TMUS IP TV feed pumped onto the big, in home flatscreen via mirroring app/usb smart sticks/etc. TMUS is going after the cable bundles using their LTE-A and mirror technology to put it on the big in home TV. With that kind of speed/bandwidth there then begs the question of why you need an existing ISP when one can use TMUS phone as a hotspot for your ISP needs.
Klowns, the iPhone 6 Plus and Google Nexus both sport 1080 resolution and have rather large screens for a hand held. Regardless of what ones phone resolution is, the phone will be nothing more than the device that feeds your big 55" flat screen. The iPhone mirrors its image up....to the much larger device.....your smart phone is your cable box and remote all in one driving the feed to your 55".
"How To Mirror The iPhone Or iPad To Your TV [iOS]" Not that hard Klown. Apps store...
Keep drinking. It will soothe your pain when the skirt is lifted and it is realized T crawled in bed with an infected Latino tranny in DTV.
I can't talk to you because your AT&T call keeps getting dropped. Legere out swinging with another market share grabbing offer. With LTE-A rolls out in some +20 moonster markets across the U.S.
Ever hear of Miracast or Chromecast? Klowns... All you need is one in your group to have the subscription......and you can rotate who's house will get trashed each Sunday and only need one person subscribing....
You really are a klown. TMUS is already making a move to become the wireless ISP pipe of choice BEFORE 5G gets here. Take a hard gander at LTE-A deployment by TMUS that brings enough bandwidth for 4K TV. Your big screen TV feeds off your IPhone which will serve as yet another tool in its Swiss Army knife - your iPhone will be your Big screen TV's remote control and ISP feed for that 4K TV. You can already project video from a smart phone onto that big 55" flat screen....
Where TMUS has deployed LTE-A (last read I had was 23 of top 25 U.S. Metro markets by EOY) it has a large wad of potential customers to market this offering. I would dump my AT&T fixed ISP in a heart beat if VZ offered a like product upon LTE-A or 5G deployment in my area. LTE-A by TMUS and they're coming out with bare knuckle brawl tactics. I didn't expect this guerrilla fighting for another couple years. At least another year.... I don't TMUS or T because I travel enough I don't want the spotty coverage issues.
I have AT&T down 6.09%.....while AAPL is up 7.08% on exactly the one year. Just a few more days and you will be correct.
He might not either given share performance is in the red since this CEO came to roost in 2007. DTV losses are going to make the costs of the failed TMUS bid look like chump change.
Sure thing klown. Good luck riding the dividend yield as the wheels start falling off DTV monopoly. AT&T has bought a horse that has run its course will soon be a swayback that turns into little more than a hay burner/cash flow burner. We can move from buggywhip to wheels falling off a stagecoach to a broken down horse. The message is the same no matter how you put it. DTV market barrier is set to collapse.
Keep the klown votes coming. Priceless actions as you posted a study that rebuked your higher income argument.
LOL You're pure entertainment and have been so for a very long time. VOD will be just fine as it completes its big wireless infrastructure build and turns into the VZ of Europe.
LOL DTV on steroids? ROFLMAO Same old inferior satellite delivery and teaser intro rate to only get jabbed hard in the second year. Yes, same old thing. "the longer the customer remains confused, the longer they stay put." Funny you mention that. Read an article a few days back that discussed the entire pay TV industry has been trying to confuse the consumers as the major networks can now be viewed in HD with free over-the-air antenna providing the major news and sporting events.
Once AT&T actually has a wireless network that is worthy of streaming TV, the OTTs will have the same avenue.
This article is full of jibberish. If AT&T is targeting a phase out of U-verse TV then I would guess some or maybe all of that gain for DTV last Q was a migration of existing U-verse customers and one indeed needs to look at the net subscriber numbers. "Everything" changed and the change was a net sub loss with all the marketing efforts/cross selling strategy. Nothing has changed for DTV. Title II and new bandwidth technologies are going destroy the market barrier for DTV bringing cash flow and dividend concerns in the not so distant future.
AT&T+DTV=Time Warner+AOL rerun
AOL has been reduced to little more than an advertising company with some residual rural dial up customers. Keep laughing as AT&T bought an AOL rerun in DTV. The market barrier soon collapses for IP TV and DTV will find itself surrounded by new competition just like AOL was slaughtered.
