WILL PAY-TV DISTRIBUTORS FEEL THE RAFT OF BROADCASTERS?

If pay-tv companies like Direct TV, Dish, and Comcast have not felt the raft of the broadcasters, they will soon.

This is a little dramatic, but sooner or later, cable networks may be seeing higher increases in content fees. Why? Because according to a Wall Street Journal article, broadcast networks have been relying on cable networks as a source of income for so long, that there is a fear that the networks might be increasing its profits.

The problem is that if cable networks have to keep paying high retransmission fees to broadcast networks, then there only source of revenue is going to keep decreasing. Especially since the cable networks are not seeing a high increase in subscriptions.

I am really interested to see how this will impact the industry later on.
