With other options out there like sling tv, playstation vue and youtubeTV there is no mistake the cable companies will need to step up their game.  Cable bills will have to go down and that should start happening soon.   Companies like Comcast, Spectrum and Time Warner have had record profits recently but these record profits will be hitting a major roadblock.  People can no longer afford $120 a month or more cable bills, there are so many other things that are competing for our money and the allure of cable is long gone.  In 5 years from now cable will be close to obsolete.   Be sure to remember me when it happens.
