As streaming services begin to expand beyond Netflix and Hulu, you'd believe wholeheartedly that the cable and satellite companies would be getting a bit concerned.
Perhaps even some of that trepidation would result in better pricing, customer service on the rise or even the courtesy of not making you wait for a four hour window for a service call.
In actuality, nothing has happened of the kind.
Cable, namely the likes of Comcast, Verizon FIOS and Direct TV, aren't doing much in the wake of customers being ready to cut the cord for good and move directly into a scenario that would have all the entertainment streaming directly to their at home devices through the likes of the aforementioned Netflix and Hulu, along with other contenders such as your favorite channels like ESPN and HBO wanting to offer the ability to consumers to watch shows via streaming on their networks, without having to have cable at a fixed, monthly price.
Yet cable and dish sit and watch, and Comcast especially isn't overly concerned despite cancellation being up. But Comcast, which often finds itself on the list of the most hated companies in the world, doesn't make canceling easy or fun. And, why exactly would they anyway? That's money out the door, and that still should mean something to the largest communications company in the world.
