I don't think streaming is hurting D* as much as some think .... ATT added the D* Now to have another revenue and to be on board with what others are doing.Yeah, I was gonna go Dish but comparing the price over two years vs Directv would come out to be the same if not barely any different if I were to sign up for Directv under a family member as a new customer. Only other option for me was going full cord cutting mode since charter is absolute crap when it comes to Dvrs and buying Tivo imo was too much of an investment.
For now I am on DTV Now, sucks no cloud dvr yet and no locals but I don’t expect too much for paying $35 a month with free HBO. Cord cutting now is at 12 million people and I expect it to become bigger next year, they are putting a hurt on tradional providers that it made att introduce DTV NOW and Charter offering streaming service at $20 bucks a month.
Sat is not going away, theres plenty of areas that don't have internet available to them.
