  1. >Over the past few years, pay-TV stocks have suffered wicked swings as investors reacted to growing subscriber losses. But they’ve recovered as the companies shift their focus to lucrative broadband services.

    It’s not clear from the title, but it appears the reason is the cable subscriber has no more financial clout, and cable companies have all been pivoting. Looks like cable as an entertainment offering is officially swirling the drain.

  2. I have been a DirecTV subscriber for nearly twenty years and I just called last week after the year-long discount that I was given when I moved service to a new house expired and I was once again given the heavily discounted price for the package I have for another twelve months plus discounts on all my pay channels for six months, a huge savings compared to what it otherwise would have been. If this ever goes away I would naturally consider switching to another option like Comcast to take advantage if whatever new customer combo deals they have for internet & TV service rather than AT&T + DirecTV.

  3. After a year-long fight with Verizon, I changed to Consumer Cellular – and saved over 50%. They tried to get me back, but went silent when I told them how much less the new service is.

    Aside from being much cheaper (4 lines for about $94), CC’s customer service is excellent, which is far more than I can say for Verizon.
