The Death of the Cable TV Bundle Will Give Rise to New Conservative Voices A Whittle Bit of Commentary 10/24/14

10/24/14 (Transcript may appear different than audio)

The death of cable TV is coming soon. In fact, it may come sooner than the cable industry would like to admit. That doesn’t mean that your favorite channels will go away, but they won’t be coming to you via a cable wire or satellite, but instead via internet streaming like Netflix. The death of the cable bundle will give rise to allowing consumers to choose which channels they want to buy and could include everything from Netflix to TBS to ESPN. I believe as the internet already has, the end of the cable bundle will allow new channels spring up and this is good news for our side. Unless you’re Rupert Murdoch or Glenn Beck, odds are you don’t have the money to start a cable channel, but with the cost of starting an internet video network being so much cheaper, I believe a lot of new, fresh conservative voices will appear on various new conservative channels and this will help to further make an impact in the culture in the same way as I mentioned Thursday about the need of conservatives to start producing video games. The future of conservatism is streaming soon. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
