Re: The cable industry isn’t stupid, right?
I think you are correct,

At some point the CATV world felt they were the only game in town and service became crappy. They were making so much money with their rg59 systems and crude set top boxes they just let their customer base look (pray) for an alternative. The sats ate their lunch...the CATV systems became unused in many areas.

Now they have many things to offer and service has improved....but the money is going to the providers. Installation is where the cost savings occure. Both the sats and cable have to pay the providers so the story is that there is no money for installations.

When CEOs need a new boat, they get a new boat.
