There is no money in video. It’s a pain to sell and people always want discounts while the content provides keep raising their rates.

Internet on the other hand costs them nothing except for the infrastructure
And customers can buy content directly from providers

Exactly!

What is going to kill video sales for everyone when you see companies shipping set top boxes that get their content from an internet connection.

We kind of have that today with roku and Apple TV via apps,

However if you took Your Directv or dish receiver and just plugged it into an internet connection

And then the ISP’s will implement lower usage caps which will make the customers internet bills go up making it just as expensive.
