    Eventually Google tv and Apple tv will dominate…but not yet. I think we are 1-2 years from that shift. Right now Hulu Plus and Netflix are disrupting the old model. I don’t know what can save cable. Yes I do…an ala carte model. Let people pick the 10 channels they watch 90% of the time. And charge them accordingly. Throw in the over the air broadcast channels and local independents and no one would ever cut the cord…no one. Or…shove 100 channels down their throat and fill the channels with ancient content libraries from media giants…put old movies no one wants to watch everywhere…weather channel, tv guide channel, throw those old movies on any channel, doesn’t matter, no one will notice…and charge them $150/month. Yeah…that’s sustainable.
