HBO, GoT and Piracy

Erik Kain:

I do think that the internet is the future of television, and that the current model is flawed. I don’t like the fact that high-quality television requires de facto subsidies from the myriad other low-quality channels out there. But the contradiction remains: a la carte cable or stand-alone services would save customers money, but would also vastly restrict what sort of quality programming would be available.

My thoughts exactly. Brace yourselves! Cord cutting is coming, and it’s gonna stay.
