Pay-TV goes on a diet
I found this very interesting to know.  I did notice that the service is not available everywhere.  So for that, it really rots for the people that can not use this.  I find it very convenient and helpful in the cases when I miss my shows due to work or going out.  I am able to pull up the show episode and watch it.  There are some cable companies that provide the free on demand channels without charging a cent.  I personally have Spectrum (was Brighthouse) and we are able to get like 6 FREE on demand channels.  Well, they are included in my package.

Awh yeah it sucks you don't have it, but it really is useful. Especially if I miss one of my shows. I'm sure you'll have it soon though! (Or at least something like it)

That's awesome! I have cable, but I also have OnDemand and I don't have to show for tv shows, but movies there's only a $5 charge.

That's very interesting. Cable companies in my area include on-demand viewing at no additional charge. I don't actually have cable, so I don't know the all details. I'm sure they offer pay-per-view movies too.

I usually just use Netflix or on demand from Comcast to catch episodes or movies...However, the selection isn't as big as I would like and I still have to pay per movie on Comcast.

You can buy complete seasons and you're rght about the discount amount - it's not a lot. I have only ever bought SD versions of video content. I don't have a fast enough ISP to warrent the extra file size of HD.

Comcast and other large telco providers have experienced large amounts of churn. This is a way to recoup some of the lost revenue. New products and services as developed based on 80% (how much can we make), 20% (what the customers want or need).

Re: A la carte video is what consumers have been asking for...
Smart monetization of content is at the heart of it--whether they are able to pull it off is another question.    The players seem to continue to be "hopeful" as I just saw on SkyNews that Liberty Media is about to do a 8.5 Billino Deal to buy Formula One (the car racing juggernaut)...just figuring out how to entice the sports fanatics to get on the bandwagon for the mode in and of itself is bound to be exciting to be witness to...right @Adi?
